I’d like to thank Georgina and the team at Aston Martin, plus Carl Thompson for inviting me along to the Aston Martin showroom.
The doors have a rear hinged aperture. These interiors are still in the design process (remember this won’t get manufactured until 2021) however, I’m told they will be like fish gills, used to control the temperature of the car.
The Lagonda Vision Concept will be the first luxury brand that is emission free. The front seat will pivot round and face the rear and the steering wheel will retract.
The rear has a classic shark nose effect. The ‘O’ looks like something extracted from Tony Stark’s chest.
The woollen interiors designed by English craftsman David Snowden. Cut and patterned by Savile Row tailors Henry Poole. (Inventors of the Tuxedo).
It doesn’t have an ejector seat.
The matted wheels above (from the Rapide E) are aluminium and were described by a member of the Aston Martin team as the mask of Darth Vadar.
I said it had some menace. The gentleman took a mental note of my analogy.
Above is the Rapide E, with a honeycomb grille. 155 made, price available upon application.
I hope you enjoyed this blog. If you click on any photo it will take you on my instagram page where most of the action happens these days.
