When released in 2015, the Lagonda Taraf was one of the most expensive and exlusive Aston Martins of all time, standing right next to icons such as the One-77 or the Valkyrie. Also, with a pricetag of over 1 Million Dollars, it was by far more expensive than a Maybach S600 or the comparable models from Rolls-Royce and Alpina.

The question whether the immense price was justified can be answered with a clear no, but… It for sure wasn’t a better car than the S600, but there are a few points that speak for the Taraf. First of all, it is a very special looking Saloon build manly for the middle east and featuring an extremly simplisticly luxurious interior design. Secondly it was first limited to just 100 units, due to high demand, those were then augmented to 200 – in the end 120 Lagonda Taraf units were built and sold. Considering that the car was solely meant as a prestigeous flagship for the Lagonda and the development costs for a 120 unit car – 1 Million might be justified. Sometimes an artwork sells for prices one might not comprehend.

Technically this Aston Martin was based on the Rapide. It came with the exact same V12 naturally aspirated engine and could reach a very impressive top speed of 314 km/h (195 mph) – which is way faster than your regualar everyday luxury-limousine can go.
