Aston Martin Lagonda Crossover Concept New Official Photos

Aston Martin tried to revive the Lagonda brand at the 2009 Geneva Auto Show but people's reaction after this first public appearance was somehow... unexpected. The car failed to impress and most Aston Martin fans considered that the concept doesn't fit the main attributes of the Lagonda brand. Still, the luxury car manufacturer is still in doubt whether to push Lagonda into production or not so here is another set of photos showing both the interior and the exterior of the car.

As you can see for yourselves, the interior looks pretty awkward, although the rear seats seem to be quite comfortable. Still, the kitschy fur on the front seats might make you think you're actually sitting in some bad taste creation belonging to an anonymous tuning house.

Unfortunately, Aston Martin really believes the car would be successful but, once again, a final decision on whether to start production of the car or not is yet to be made.

"Lagonda will have its own niche with luxurious and truly versatile products suitable for both existing and emerging markets," Ulrich Bez, Aston Martin CEO was quoted as saying in September 2008 when it was believed that Lagonda will enter production in 2012. “An Aston Martin is an authentic, pure sports car. but Lagonda is something else, a new brand that will reach into new markets. Lagonda will create a new kind of customer relationship, instilling the spirit of travel, adventure and style into a single, formidable package."

"Lagonda models would be vehicles that could be used all year round in markets such as Russia where specialized sports cars such as Aston Martins could only be used for three or four months each year," Aston Martin spokeswoman Janette Green added.
