At the center of Springfield, Ohio is the ancient Shawnee village of Lagonda. Wilbur Gunn decided to name his car company after his hometown, having no idea it would last over a century. All Lagondas are known for luxury, especially those crafted for nobles and celebrities. David Brown bought the company along with Aston Martin in 1947, allowing the British auto industry to get back on its feet.
To celebrate their centenary and appeal to wealthy Arabic customers, the “Taraf” literally translates to “the most luxurious”. Powered by their venerable 6-liter V12, each example was built completely by hand. This includes every stitch of leather that lines the interior. Each car took months to build, so only 120 examples were built. Each one offers 565 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. It can’t be compared to any other sedan, before or since. As a hallmark for a true Aston Martin aficionado, the Aston Martin Taraf deserves to be part of your collection. This matte black example has only been driven 88 miles, so it demands respect in any situation.
