A 4 door for Aston Martin as well???

Under the stewardship of David Richards, Aston Martin has become an automaker that is making waves in the industry. A brand new limited edition £1million supercar dubbed one-77 is currently in development, and soon we will see the unveiling of the Rapide Four-Door Coupe. However, one of its most surprising moves has been the decision to revive the Lagonda brand.  The first concept is due to be presented to the public next year while full production is planned for 2012.

No specific details have been released on what the first model could be, but one possibility could be a four door luxury sedan which has been eloquently rendered by WCF resident Andrei Avarvarii. We already know that Aston Martin is quite capable of producing beautiful cars, so we have no reason to believe Lagonda will be any different. The grille has been designed to be the luxury equivalent of the “smile” we usually see on Aston Martins. The body skulpture has creases that are intended to dissimulate the massive proportions of the car while simple, clean lines are emphasized by high-tech elements for a car that is filled with history, yet aimed at the future.

Looks like a parts bin mock-up to me. De Lorean wheels, AU Falcon series 1 "waterfall" grille, and rejected Mazda stylist design.

Hmm, Given that Ford used to own Aston, and the Ford/Mazda relationship too, it probably isn't far from the mark. I certainly hope Aston don't take up that design.

Who owns AM now?  I'd be surprised to see ANY new models from them all things considered.

"On 12 March 2007 a consortium led by Prodrive chairman David Richards purchased Aston Martin for £475m/USD$848m.[13] Prodrive has no financial involvement in the deal.[14] Ford will keep a stake in the company (valued at GBP 40 million / USD 70 million). The consortium also consisted of John Sinders, an Aston Martin collector; and two Kuwaiti investment companies, Investment Dar and Adeem Investment Co."

In alright hands but you wonder if the Kuwaiti's know what they got themselves into.

The grille is up-side-down.

A four door AM called 'Aston Martin Lagonda'?  Unprecedented!
