Aston Martin To Revive Lagonda Brand, Offer Two New Super Saloons

Aston Martin is planning to reawaken the slumbering Lagonda name and plaster it on two ultra-luxury sedans beginning in 2011. The first Lagonda will be based on the already nearing production Aston Martin Rapide » 10/09/08 2:20pm 10/09/08 2:20pm, though dressed to impress and sporting a higher price tag to match. The other offering would go live…

Project Car Hell: R33 Skyline GT-R or Aston Martin Lagonda?

Perhaps it was the terrifying rust coupled with warrior heritage, but somehow an American Hell Project managed to beat an obscure Warsaw Pact convertible in yesterday's Choose Your Eternity poll. Actually, it was a near-tie, but still a triumph for the red-white-and-blue over the, uh, blue-white-and-red. Today we're… » 6/10/08 5:20pm 6/10/08 5:20pm

The Aston Martin Lagondawagon

There's nothing quite like an Aston Martin Lagonda. For a princely sum you could have the unique "folding paper" design, ginormous four-cam V8 and acres and acres of leather.

What Do You Want in the Fantasy Garage?

The Bora snuck in by the skin of it's teeth yesterday. More importantly, the howls were louder and louder. "Not my fantasy." "Nice car, but there are 50 better cars out there." "LOL fugly POS." All valid criticism I guess. Sure, why not? But folks, the Bora makes 36 cars parked in the Garage. We'll toss another one out after … » 12/06/07 12:30pm 12/06/07 12:30pm

Project Car Hell: Lagonda or Giulietta?

The small-block-powered Jaguar XJC whumped the small-block-powered '76 Corvette in yesterday's Choose Your Eternity poll, and we figure it must have been the slick custom body mods on the Jag that tipped the balance- after all, the Vette just had a taillight transplant and a weird fiberglass hood, while the Jag had… » 12/05/07 5:30pm 12/05/07 5:30pm

Aston Martin's Vanquish Is No More


Today is a sad day for Aston Martin fans. You can say what you will about the Vanquish never living up to its full ubercar potential (the engine was never powerful enough, the gearbox competed with Maserati's duo-select for the right to the title of "World's Worst") and the air vents were from a Taurus. Regardless, the… » 7/19/07 12:00pm 7/19/07 12:00pm
