Test sit: Aston Martin Lagonda Taraf

At the Geneva show, got talking to a very knowledgable and friendly Aston Martin salesman, who suggested we came early the next day, when he would show us round the stand. The Lagonda was in a room at the back of the stand, though just about visible from outside, but we were able to look all around it, and sit inside it, obviously in the back! Which is utterly superb - with gorgeous soft leather and alcantara, and some quite tasteful light-coloured wood trim. And of course, with its big wheelbase stretch, the back is not only spacious, but easy to access through wide doors that still swing upwards in the usual Aston way.

The car looks great from outside too - long and low, and with a nice reference to the 70s Lagonda in the C pillar styling, and a new and attractive take on the Aston Martin "face"at the front. I'd imagine even seeing one on the road will be a rare occurrence, so to have the chance to get up close and personal with it was a great experience.
