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.

SPECIFICATION

In May 2008, Aston Martin announced many new technological updates for the Vantage, which included many changes to the engine, transmission, suspension and appearance. New cylinder liners that were now pressed into the aluminium block instead of the original cast-in variants allow a thinner liner, which in turn allows a larger capacity of 4.7 L. The cylinder bore and stroke has been increased from 89 mm (3.5 in) to 91 mm (3.6 in) and 86 mm (3.4 in) to 91 mm (3.6 in) respectively, giving a total displacement of 4735 cc. The dry sump lubrication system was also performance modified.

SPORTSHIFT

The “Sportshift” semi automatic transmission benefited from an intelligent software update, while a lightened flywheel was introduced for both the manual and the Sportshift. Aston Martin also stiffened the suspension and now uses uprated Bilstein dampers. An optional sports pack is being offered with stiffer springs, tighter handling, and all-new 5-spoke alloy wheels. Sportshift-equipped models also receive a new electronic dual throttle mapping update which allows the driver to choose from the default sport mode, or comfort mode, which gives more comfortable gear shifts and throttle input for much improved driveability.

UPDATES

New wheels are also part of the Aston Martin Vantage V8 update including a 20-spoke alloy wheel and a new 5-spoke aluminium wheel for the highly desirable sport pack. The interior has been changed slightly, using an updated console similar to the Aston Martin DBS and the DB9.

The update provides the Vantage with 420 bhp (310 kW) (an 11% increase) and delivers peak torque of 470 N⋅m (350 lb⋅ft) (a 15% increase), providing the car with additional reserves of mid-range performance and an improved top speed. Combined European fuel economy and CO2 emissions are also improved by 13% on the Sportshift, so faster, more economical, more comfortable to drive but still remains the British gentleman’s express with enviable style and subtlety. Added to the above is a much better gear change up and down the gearbox.
