Aston Martin Lagonda Concept – Click above for high-res gallery

If you were looking forward to Aston Martin's revival of the long-dormant Lagonda marque and were disappointed by the controversially-styled crossover concept unveiled earlier this month at the Geneva Motor Show, take heart: a second Lagonda concept is on the way. The news reportedly comes directly from the mouth of David Richards, chairman of Aston Martin-Lagonda's board, who admitted that the crossover concept was just one attempt, but that the company would be coming back with another in May. If you're wondering what major auto show is taking place in May, you can stop scratching your head: New York is in early April with Shanghai and Moscow to follow later the same month. That's it until the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. So unless Richards got his dates mixed up, the second Lagonda concept will be unveiled at its own dedicated event.

The bigger question is what form the next Lagonda concept will take. Reception towards the sport-ute concept at the Geneva show was rather puzzled, so our money is on some sort of sedan or wagon. AML won't want it to encroach on the upcoming Rapide, so don't expect some sort of four-door coupe, but with segments being busted all across the industry, anything is possible. We'll just have to wait a couple of months to find out.

      I hope this is a joke or that a major improvement comes there way.

      Now, everyone who has ever slammed the Porsche Panamera, including me, is loving it right about now. The late 70s Lagonda was also a standout, but not for being such an OGRE.

      This body may be the perfect design to replace the Crown Vics as NYC cabs.

      No.

      I'm thinking it'll be a neo-retro sedan/wagon to go against the high end Bentleys and RR's.

      I would like to suggest (not like they would listen anyways) an uber-Rapide to face off with the likes of the Phantom and Maybach and focuses on being totally utterly unbelievably gorgeous and luxurious without any sporting pretentions. That would be epic.

      Get Fisker or Callum back now! Seriously, who's the director of design over Aston since the other two left?

        By the look of this...some Korean. That's what happens. They start to look like cracker boxes

      Why not just make an update of the original Lagonda sedan? It was distinctive, imposing and elegant. Bring it back in 21st century guise!

        In absolute agreement with you. One thing though, please shorten the trunk. Last one had a helicopter landing pad.

      hopefully the next one will be an actual lagonda and not a swoopy mercedes glk
