Pictured en route to Oman for hot-weather testing.
We've seen the spy shots. The obligatory teaser image has come and gone. And now, thanks to an unusual source in the form of Oman Air, we can enjoy a first look at the Aston Martin Lagonda sedan. It's probably not the way the classy British carmaker expected the limited run model described as "exceptional automotive art" to be unveiled. Nonetheless, here it is. Built in the same facility that created the One-77 at Aston's Gaydon factory, the Lagonda will be available on an invitation-only basis to select customers in the Middle East.
Styling cues come from the original 1976 Lagonda, and the car will ride on the automaker's ubiquitous VH platform dressed in carbon-fiber body panels. Power is expected to come from the 6.0-liter V12 in the Vantage S, albeit dialed up to around 600 horsepower. Aston has brought the super sedan to Muscat, the capital of Oman, for hot weather testing ahead of starting deliveries next year with production limited to less than 100 units.
