Aston Martin is to extend the availability of its forthcoming Lagonda super saloon to other markets rather than just the Middle East.
Now named the Lagonda Taraf, the vehicle will also be available in the UK, Europe and South Africa - but in strictly limited numbers.
The Warwickshire-based car-maker's chief executive Andy Palmer revealed that increasing its availability was high on the agenda after he took over at the helm from Dr Ulrich Bez in October last year.
Mr Palmer said: "Opening up the Lagonda Taraf to an increased number of customers around the world was a high priority for me as soon as I joined Aston Martin late last year.
"I wanted to be able to offer this exceptional saloon to the potential owners from around the globe who have been enquiring about it and I'm very happy that we have been able to expand the Lagonda proposition."
Initially available only to buyers in the Middle East, where it was launched in Dubai late last year, no more than 200 Lagonda Tarafs will be built.
The return of the Lagonda marque follows in the wake of other bespoke special projects by Aston Martin such as the creation of the Aston Martin Vulcan supercar, Vantage GT3 special edition, One-77, V12 Zagato and the CC100 Speedster Concept.
Based on the brand's VH architecture, the Taraf has been inspired by the William Towns-designed Lagonda of 1976.
It also features many of the engineering techniques seen in modern Aston Martin sports cars, such as the extensive use of carbon fibre body panels.
The car is being hand-built at Aston Martin's manufacturing facility in Gaydon in a dedicated building previously given over to the creation of the One-77 supercar.
The six-litre V12-engined super saloon is being offered to clients through Aston Martin's VIP sales programme.
No pricing details have been revealed, though the firm said it expected costs to vary considerably due to the high levels of bespoke content offered.
Mr Palmer added: "We anticipate very quick expressions of interest from customers around the world, many of whom will want to add Lagonda to their luxury and sports car collections.
"Aside from its confident style, many buyers will also recognise this Lagonda Taraf as a piece of automotive history, following in the tracks of its distinguished predecessor the William Towns Lagonda.
"I'm also particularly pleased that we have been able to engineer Lagonda for right-hand drive markets meaning, of course, that I'm sure we will see the car in use on Aston Martin's 'home ground' of the UK in due course."
