Lagonda From the Lagoon?

Growing into full car awareness in the '80s, one of the dream boat machines for me was the Aston Martin Lagonda. The design was so unique and in my opinion quite fetching.

I always wondered what a revival of the Lagonda might do for the Aston Martin brand and when I saw the Rapide concept, I naturally assumed that it would "Inherit the Wind" so to speak and become our century's Lagonda. Sadly, while the Rapide makes it to market it will not be called the Lagonda. Instead, we have this hack job of a SUV concept to deal with:

The rear quarter isn't so bad, but the front clip is atrocious.
