Those spy pictures of an Aston Martin Lagonda revival apparently weren't just showing a one-off.
It turns out that the British marque has something very special in order.
The Lagonda nameplate will be resurrected, again, to produce a luxury sedan to be outfitted by Aston Martin's Q department. For the uninitiated, Q is the branch of Aston that builds the personalized vehicles and special one-off products, like the CC100.
Though there will be more than one Lagonda built, it will be a limited series run with less than 100 to be produced in total, according to CAR. It is rumored to be fitted with the, predictable, 6.0-liter V12 Aston typically uses in its sports cars. The good news is that the rumormill is speculating an all-new eight-speed transmission will manage power — this is a common complaint with all of Aston's all-new offerings.

And instead of a lumbering 4x4, Aston is preparing this secret sports saloon, which will be built by Q branch, the company's personalisation department...
...It is tipped to use the 600bhp 5.9-litre V12 seen elsewhere in the Aston firmament, mated to an upgraded eight-speed automatic transmission.
If Q department is responsible for the new Lagonda saloon, it seems certain that only lower volume production is likely. Fewer than 100 units are mooted.
