Handcrafted Aston Martin Cygnet

Aston Martin recently uploaded a new video offering an insight into what it actually takes to build the Toyota iQ-based, Cygnet city car. The Cygnet has always suffered with the stigma of looking almost identical to the iQ, however, Aston Martin are keen to prove that actually, the Cygnet is the far superior car. This video shows the commitment to detail and the hand-crafted finishing applied to every car.

At a starting price of just under € 40,000, the Cygnet isn’t cheap. That price includes the basic model, however a few ticks on the option list can quickly bring the price up. It’s with this in mind that Aston Martin decided to release this insider view of the Cygnet build process. The Cygnet shares the same philosophy as the Aston Martin One-77 in this respect. No two cars are ever likely to be the same.

Whilst the Cygnet is undeniably based on the Toyota iQ, that’s only half the story…
