If you are an Aston Martin fan at all, you will remember the limited production of the Aston Martin Lagonda sedan that was produced between 1974 and 1990. The car was so limited in fact, that in the 16 years it was produced, the company only manufactured 645 models.
But now the Aston Martin Lagonda is set to get a new lease on life with the unveiling of the 2015 Lagonda Sedan.
The 2015 Lagonda arrived in Oman this week to supposedly undergo some further testing. This was also the first time we got to see a glimpse of the Lagonda, and, by the looks of things, it is one classy car. (more…)
Concept cars are great. Mostly because it is, after all, only a concept and you can really let your imagination go. Not only are concept cars fun to design by designers themselves, but its also great for us car fanatics to see what people come up with and what we can possibly see in the near future.
This latest Aston Martin concept is like something out of a sci-fi film – and it’s awesome.

Ivan Sentch is a software engineer and, by using a 3D printer, he has printed a 1961 Aston Martin DB4.
Sound crazy? It kind of is. Snetch uses different plastics to print the mold for the car, after which he will create a fiberglass exterior for his “vintage” car.
The best part is, the cost for the plastics he has used so far has been a meager $2000. At an auction or collector’s showroom, a DB4 can fetch over $1 million. The idea of 3D printing cars and creating replica’s has completely changed the way in which people can re-create or replicate famous cars.

Using an uncomplicated, consumer-level 3D printer, people all over the world can easily, and cheaply create these replicas in their own garages.
Although Snetch’s Aston Martin is not complete yet, he estimates that it will take round about another 5 years to completely finish the job – and by this he means that his Aston Martin will be ready to hit the road!
We’ll definitely keep an eye out for this one!
