The Lagonda brand was founded in 1906 by Wilbur Gunn. Lagonda won the famous  Le Mans 24h race with a Lagonda M45R driven by John Stuart and Luis Fontez. The Lagonda Rapide V-12 1939 was the most expensive car in the United States at the time of its launch. The company however filed for bankruptcy soon after, and was bought by Alan Good, who outbid Rolls Royce for the company. In 1947 Lagonda was bought by David Brown, who had also bought Aston Martin. The brand came back in 1976 with the William Towns designed angular Aston Martin Lagonda, which was released as an Aston Martin car. However the model was discontinued in early 1990, effectively ending the brand name at the same time.

Aston Martin decided to revive the Lagonda brand in 2009, to expand outside its traditional sporting realm into untapped segments such as luxury saloons and celebrate Lagonda’s centennial anniversary. “The ASTON MARTIN Lagonda brand would allow us to develop cars which can have a different character than a sports car,” said CEO Ulrich Bez in a statement. “Lagonda will have its own niche with luxurious and truly versatile products suitable for both existing and emerging markets”.

The Aston Martin Lagonda Taraf project was undertaken by Aston Martin’s Q division which specialises in commissioning bespoke cars and customising existing models to  specifications. The final full-size model was completed in 8 months of the first studio sketches in January 2014. Marek Reichman attributed the swift execution to lessons learnt from the production of the Aston Martin One – 77, which took two years.

The TARAF is intended as a homage to the Aston Martin Lagonda, which was produced between 1976 and 1990. A total of 645 of those cars were produced, each of which took 2200 man hours to build.

Specifications

The Aston Martin Lagonda Taraf is powered by a 48-valve, 6-litre V12 producing 540HP and 465 lb-ft of torque. It has a maximum limited speed of 195 miles per hour (314 km/h).

Production

Top Gear reported that the Aston Martin Lagonda Taraf was undergoing hot weather testing in Oman in September 2014. The car was put through 14,000 miles (23,000 km) of testing in four weeks in temperatures ranging between 30–50 C. The car was subsequently unveiled in the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

The car began production in 2016, with the company saying that only 200 cars will be made. The Taraf is produced in Aston Martin’s plant in Gaydon, Warwickshire. When Andy Palmer took over as the CEO, he had the car’s potential markets widened to include Europe, USA, Singapore and South Africa. He also had the number of cars to be produced increased to 200.  The car is the most expensive four-door saloon in the world as of April 2017.

The body panels are made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP), which then receives a seven-layer paint job besides polishing and elbow grease. The car made a run at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The production will end by December 2018, with 150 cars expected to have been sold by then.

Although the details of the car are still unclear, it will have a naturally aspirated v12 engine and will have some sort of hybridization; possibly a Formula 1 style hybrid system. It will reportedly have 1 horsepower for every kilogram and is expected to weigh about 2,300 pounds.

 

 Everything is made of carbon fiber and there is not a single steel component in its entire structure. It is rumored to have around 1000 horsepower on tap to go with a 10,000 rpm rev limit and a 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds or less. It is also expected to have a semi-active suspension system when it hits the market in 2018.
