The first images with the upcoming Aston Martin Lagonda have been recently released by the car manufacturer, showing the model being transported to Oman.
After it was teased just a month ago, the brand new Aston Martin Lagonda is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the help of its first official images, which have been released by the company, as they are showing the pre-production version of the sedan being transported to Oman for testing.
“Oman Air has developed an enviable global reputation as a luxury airline that offers innovation and the highest quality in every aspect of its operations, so we are the perfect partner to assist Aston Martin in heat-testing its stunning new Lagonda”. Said the general manager for Oman Air, Mohammed Al Shikely.
The brand new Aston Martin Lagonda will be running on the VH platform, which is also used on the Rapid, and it is expected to use some carbon fiber body parts, leading to a lowered weight. No details on the engine have been announced yet but chances are the model will get a 6.0 liter V12 unit under its hood, with approximately 600 HP (447 kW), connected to an 8-speed automatic transmission which will send power to the rear-wheel drive. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint should be made in approximately 4.2 seconds. Less than 100 units are planned for production.
