New Reveal At Geneva : 2009 Aston Martin Lagonda Concept

100 years ago, Lagonda was a luxury company belonged to Aston Martin. Lagonda created cars like M45 Tourer that was a rival to Bugatti back in 1934. Lagonda soldered one until the 1980's, were Aston's luxury brand was canceled because of poor sales. Well at Geneva, Aston Martin announced that they'll bring Lagonda back! This is what they came up with.
It's the Lagonda Concept. First rumors before it came out, that it was a Mercedes S-Class rival. Well from the pictures now, it's seems this concept is a 4-seater sporty crossover, much like the BMW X6.

“The Lagonda is the luxury car of the future,” says Aston Martin Lagonda Chief Executive, Dr Ulrich Bez, “a combination of total usability, a new form and innovative new technology and materials.”
Lagonda concept uses Aston Martin’s 6.0L V12 and rides on 22-inch wheels. It has a very strong and bold design. It certainly shows some Aston DNA in the front fasica. We expect to hear a lot more about the revival and the new generation of the Lagonda Marque (luxury sedan built in the 80's) in the near future.

Welcome back, Langonda !
