Aston Martin just released the first official pics of its reborn Lagonda, and if you live anywhere outside the Middle East, you're out of luck. Oh, and bring bags and bags of unmarked Dirhams.

Naturally, Aston isn't saying much about, well, anything beyond calling the Lagonda a "luxurious and exclusive super saloon" and confirming that it's built atop the same VH architecture that underpins damn near everything in the Aston range.

The Lagonda was designed by the same crew that gave the world the One-77, V12 Zagato, and CC100 Speedster, and will be hand-built in the same workshop. Sales are by invitation only, pricing details are confidential, and the buyer identities will remain anonymous – until they roll up in Monaco.

Aston isn't saying when it will debut, but we've got our fingers crossed for a showing in Pebble – and for a brace of LCD gauges.

I'm on an Aston event at the moment, which started at Gaydon and now we're in Scotland. When we were driving around Gaydon, I caught sight of a camo-clad sedan that I thought could be the Lagonda... I was later told I was right, and no other journalist spotted it. I wish I had my camera handy, though I would've crashed since RHD + MURICA = Crashy crashy,

We got a few details from them yesterday during a general Q&A.

Lagonda-badged only, no Aston Martin badging. The car will sit very low. The four seats will be large (not Rapide-like, heh). The car will run around 5 1/2 meters long (Rapide is 5 meters).

Lagonda won't be a one off, nor could it be just this one model but a return of the Lagonda nameplate and more cars to come.
