Aston Martin Goes All Bespoke

Aston Martin is bringing back its famous Lagonda nameplate with a new “saloon” car that will only be available in the Middle East.

For those of us not fluent in the British colloquialism–that would be a four-door sedan in U.S. terms.

The design is based on the 1976 Lagonda designed by William Towns. Only 645 were produced and the boxy lines of that car’s “folded paper style” often causes visceral reactions in both artists and enthusiasts alike.

This boxy bit of luxury will come replete with carbon fiber body panels and available by exclusive invite only, according to the press release.

The price will also remain a secret–except for those willing to pay it.
