Aston Martin Lagonda Taraf will be available in the UK.

Aston Martin Lagonda Taraf will be available in the UK. 

Aston Martin has announced that its hyper super luxury saloon Lagonda Taraf will go on sale in Europe and South Africa. The car was launched in Dubai in 2014 and was only available in the Middle East. Due to the high interest from around the world, Aston has decided to offer the car to markets outside its original restrictions but in a limited production of no more than 200 cars.

Taraf means ‘ultimate luxury’ in Arabic, a name that befits a car which is hand-built in limited numbers at an undisclosed price. The model is based on the iconic square-edged 1976 Lagonda car and is on the same VH architecture that underpins other Astons such as the 200mph Vanquish.

The new Lagonda is fitted with Aston’s 6.0-litre V12 and it’s built on the same production line that once made the One-77. The car’s performance is not something to be worried about and we can expect a top speed close to 200mph and 0-62mph pace around the 5-second mark.

Sales are by invitation only from Aston Martin and prices are confidential and likely to vary significantly per customer due to the very high levels of bespoke options they could choose from to make their cars unique. They have been rumoured to arrive later in 2015 with a price tag reportedly in excess of £400,000.
