Aston Martin has teamed up with Oman Air, who will be the marque’s logistics partner in the Middle East as they work to develop the new Lagonda. That isn’t the most earth shattering news you’ll hear today.
However, Oman Air has issued a press release, possibly by accident, which blows Aston Martin’s carefully planned reveal and launch schedule out of the water.
Instead of an Aston Martin branded car-sized crate, or perhaps the new model in heavy disguise, Oman Air has decided to provide photographs of what looks remarkably like a production-ready Lagonda sitting on a luggage transporter.
The new car will be a top-of-the-range luxury four-door saloon exclusively for the Middle East market. Based on the Volkswagen VH platform and powered by a V12 engine, the Lagonda is part of Aston Martin’s Q division that creates bespoke models for clients.
That means the price will be significant. Very.
