An Aston Martin official has confirmed a coach built model is currently in the works within the firm's Q bespoke program.

The Lagonda moniker could be brought back to life but not for a crossover as hinted by the namesake concept from 2009 as Q by Aston Martin is currently working on a limited-edition custom sedan. It won't be part of the firm's main range which means it will sit alongside other special models such as the One-77, V12 Zagato and the more recent CC100 Speedster.

It's expected to be longer than the Rapide with power coming from Aston Martin's V12 6.0-liter engine outputting 565 bhp (421 kW) sent to the wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. Chances are Aston Martin will shave off some considerable weight by manufacturing the body panels from carbon fiber and it will allegedly adopt a retro-flavored design with an angular rear while the roofline and flanks will mimic the original model.

The Aston Martin Lagonda is expected to come out in the fourth quarter of the year and should cost somewhere in the region of 400,000 GBP, with only around 100 units planned.
