2016 LAGONDA TARAF
The Lagonda Taraf, introduced at the Geneva International Motor Show in 2015, a super saloon firmly aimed at the Ultra Luxury market and undoubtedly for extremely limited production. When launched the Taraf carried a price tag of a $1 million excluding taxes and was by far most expensive saloon available, in the day.
Styled by Aston Martin’s renowned Gaydon studios, under the guidance of design director Marek Reichman and hand-built, in a dedicated facility, previously given over to the creation of the One-77 hypercar, the quite spectacular Lagonda Taraf, manages to be both perfectly proportioned and sculpturally sophisticated, whilst simultaneously being both spectacular and yet, restrained.
The unique bodywork of this elegant super limousine is formed from Carbon Fibre and Aluminium. Constructed on Aston Martins highly adaptable all aluminium VH chassis architecture, configured for the Lagonda Taraf’s extensive wheelbase, creating a spacious and sumptuous rear compartment, capable of carrying its occupant’s in great comfort.
Powered by the legendary Aston Martin V12 engine, producing a mighty 540 BHP, transmitted through Aston Martin’s unique 8 speed TT3 automatic transaxle gearbox, the specification combines. to provide a top speed in excess of 190 mph with 0-60 mph arriving in 4.4 seconds.
Beautifully finished in Onyx Black metallic paintwork with a Winter Wheat and Obsidian Black Caithness hide Interior, the luxurious and comprehensive equipment of the Taraf, is further complimented by a Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 1,000W audio system and a refrigerated rear stowage compartment, whilst distinctive Tamo Ash wood veneered door and facia finishers and twin rear entertainment screens, complete the refined interior specifications.
Built in 2016, in Left Hand Drive configuration, the Lagonda Taraf is in all probability, the last Lagonda model to be built and powered by the internal combustion engine and is therefore something of a landmark in the long and illustrious history of Lagonda motor cars, the company having been founded in 1906. No longer available to order, we understand less than 60 examples were manufactured before production ceased, of which this unmarked example, is one.
Available having covered only 150 Kilometres from new, this imposing and exclusive ‘super sports saloon’, is indistinguishable from new and is certain, to create a wave of interest, when and wherever, it arrives.
