The British based automaker Aston Martin is planning to revive the Lagonda nameplate, which is believed to become a luxury SUV.
The revival of the Aston Martin Lagonda is just around the corner. The announcement has been made by the company’s chief executive Ulrich Bez, at the launch of the new Vanquish Volante, last week. According to the Aston Martin official, the revival of the Lagonda will happen but it’s not sure whether it will hit the market “in three weeks or three years”. Ulrich Bez is confident that the new Lagonda will eventually be born and its revival will include new midsize and full sedans as well as a crossover.
The Aston Martin Lagonda was a luxury four-door sedan produced between 1976 and 1990 and its predecessor was the Lagonda Rapide. The Series 1 was introduced at the London Motor Show in 1974 and it came with a 5.3L V8 engine, producing 280 HP and 408 Nm of torque (301 lb-ft). The Series 2 was unveiled in 1976 and it had a 5.3L V8 unit, with the same 280 HP and 408 Nm (301 lb-ft) of torque. The Series 3 was seen in just 75 units while the Series 4 was unveiled during the 1987 Geneva Motor Show and it had a significant facelift.
