Also, President of Lagonda clarifies that the design of this car is not at all like Aston. A spokesperson also lay out plan and as neglected to mention acronym of this SUV. There are two more Lagondas which are actually Sedans are also using Aston’s VH platform.

People can hope to see Lagonda in the first months of year 2012. So, let’s hope to see a new version of Aston Martin to enjoy its brand new and refreshing look.
2016 Aston Martin Lagonda Taraf New Interior
The external body panels are made from carbon fiber, but beneath the surface the Taraf is less radical. To describe it as an XL version of the Rapide S sedan downplays the huge effort that has gone into creating it, but it’s a fair summary of the truth. The Taraf sits on a stretched version of Aston’s familiar VH aluminum architecture, with a 7.9-inch-longer wheelbase than the Rapide. It’s powered by Aston’s usual 5.9-liter naturally aspirated V-12 engine, here in 540-hp tune. Power is sent to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transaxle, which is mounted pretty much between the rear seats.
Climb into the driver’s seat and the Rapide connection is reinforced. The Taraf shares the same dashboard and switchgear, and the front door panels are barely differentiated. Sliding the seat back puts average-size drivers in uncomfortable proximity to the substantial B-pillar, limiting visibility, with the high beltline reinforcing the impression that you’re in a large coupe.
Of course, the typical Taraf buyer is only fractionally more likely to drive themselves than they are to pilot their own Learjet, which is why far more effort has been spent on the back of the car. It’s pretty much the diametric opposite of the tight-fitting Rapide S’s gloomy, cryptlike cabin, with all of the wheelbase stretch going toward extra rear legroom. It’s not as spacious as its rivals, the rear seats don’t recline and are still divided by a substantial leather-covered hillock, but it’s definitely the most spacious back seat Aston has produced since the last Lagonda.
Fundamentally Still an Aston
Although the Taraf has been tuned to deliver comfort, its fundamental Aston-ness has been buried in a very shallow grave. The V-12 fires to life without the “look at me” bark that Astons deliver when started, and the throttle pedal has been recalibrated for chauffeuring with what feels like a length of elastic added. The eight-speed automatic shuffles its ratios cleanly in Drive, and the Lagonda is entirely happy to be trickled along at motorcade speeds.
But that isn’t what it’s best at. The V-12 lacks low-down torque and needs to be worked hard to deliver its best, with bigger throttle openings encouraging the gearbox to hold gears for longer (or you can take control directly via the paddles behind the steering wheel). Although quiet by Aston standards, the sonorous exhaust encourages exploration of the upper reaches of the rev range, with impressive acceleration when you do.
