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

Aston Martin is used to success. Its road cars are some of the most coveted in all of auto-dom, and its race cars have mastered Le Mans like Yo-Yo Ma has the cello. This year's planned rebirth of Lagonda, however, didn't go as well.

The oddball crossover concept that debuted at Geneva earlier this year was received with such ire that the company yanked it after the first day, before the public could ever see it... save through our camera lenses. So you can imagine the surprise when the Lagonda Concept popped up again on the Aston Martin media website, complete with a new batch of photos.

We've placed said photos of the Mercedes GL-based concept in the gallery below – complete with some very strange interior trim – for your browsing "pleasure," if you can call it that. But we can't help but wonder what Gaydon's up to.

      Still ugly, still undesireable. This thing makes the Panamera attractive. Hell, it makes the Cayenne attractive.

      Why would anyone in their right mind think that this car would go over well?

        Seriously. I HATE you AB. Just when we started to forget about this thing...why did you have to show us again?!
      • 5 Years Ago
      Wow... they just CAN'T get this thing right!

      I mean, seriously... at what point does an otherwise good design gropu stand back and say, "yep, that's it... that's the best we can do."

      Aston Martin builds beautiful sports cars, but this one looks as UGLY as hell.
      Who's going to buy a $200K SUV? Everybody is going to buy sports cars if they're talking about >200K.
      What does it mean by Aztek?
      • 5 Years Ago
      The Aztek was a better design proportionally. This is thing all over the place. Seriously flawed design.

      I'm probably going to get run off the blog for this; but I think this is beautiful.

      Nope, don't like it.

      I don't really think it's "ugly" (well - the back end is, and it's functionally horrible as well), but I think it's so unlike the beauty of Aston Martin that it's ugly by comparison. And the fact that people were expecting so much more.

      If this were to be released as something else - say an Infiniti or a Chrysler or something - would be perceived to be as ugly?

      PICTURE IT AS A SUBARU, MITSUBISHI, CHRYSLER OR LAND ROVER....

      IT'LL START LOOKING BETTER

      Hey. Who stole the cushions off my grandmother's couch and threw them in the back seat of this thing?

      KILL IT WITH FIRE.

      Why do exotic makers always have to kill their spirit in pursuit of volume at any cost?
