Aston Martin has confirmed and unveiled the details of its new saloon car, the Lagonda.

The Lagonda nameplate was originally released in 1976 and was designed by William Towns. Aston Martin says the new car will draw inspiration and design cues from the original Lagonda, though it will be fitted with modern Aston Martin technology like carbon fiber body panels.

The saloon will be made available for sale in the Middle East only. If that wasn't enough, the sale will be by invitation only, making for even increased exclusivity.

“The debut of this luxury super saloon in the Middle East market will be an exciting moment not only for Aston Martin, but for discerning customers who are seeking the ultimate in luxury and personalization,” said Marek Reichman, Aston Martin Design Director.

Factory production of the new car will begin in early 2015 and will be handmade at the Aston Martin manufacturing facility in Gaydon, Warwickshire, the same facility that housed the creation of the Aston Martin One-77 hypercar.
