Aston Martin Lagonda Taraf 2015

Monday, 10 November 2014 13:10

Aston Martin CEO Dr Andy Palmer has unveiled the luxury British brand’s stunning new Lagonda super saloon today in Dubai. Dr Palmer revealed that the Lagonda, which is being built in a strictly limited small series initially only for customers in the Middle East, will be known as the Lagonda Taraf in that market.

The return of Lagonda follows in the wake of other headline-grabbing projects by Aston Martin in recent years such as the creation of the One-77 hypercar, V12 Zagato and last year’s CC100 Speedster Concept. The all carbon fiber hand built Taraf is the latest release in the company's 101 year of history in the auto industry.

Sources said that the Taraf has covered some 14,000 miles in its four-week intensive hot environment testing earlier this year in Oman withstanding temperatures up to 50 degrees Celsius. The tests were designed to allow the engineers the opportunity to study the functionality and durability of the car in the hot climate, including aspects like the efficiency of its air-con system and how its interior trims tolerate the heat. Powered by a 5.9-litre V12 engine, the Taraf is expected reach 100Km/h in 4.1seconds.
