The Aston Martin Cygnet has officially been introduced by the British luxury car maker, using a Toyota iQ as a basis to create the Cygnet. The customised vehicle will only be available for people who buy a ‘real’ Aston. The Brits reckon that they will shift as many as 4,000 per year.
Although it is Japanese underneath, they have given the Cygnet a distinctive grille and unique headlights. There are also new rear lights and a luxury cabin with leather upholstery. Customers can choose from a variety of options for the Cygnet.
Price? At least € 40,000 to 50,000. The Cygnet will be available by the end of this year.
i dont think this would have happened 20 years ago.
the partneship between toyota and aston that is.
i think even though theres lodgic behind the parneship, the aston press pack ready pretty fake.
all this talk of binging new inovation to the small car sector is quite embarassing considering toyota did it almost a year and a half ago when they launched the iq.
