Two strictly limited launch editions celebrate the arrival of the Aston Martin Cygent city car as the production begins in Aston’s Gaydon headquarters in the UK. This prestigious urban commuter has a starting price of £30,995 and comes with such a thick layer of luxuriousness on top that you wouldn’t notice it’s a Toyota iQ underneath!
That’s alright actually, becasue the iQ is a very fine little car and let’s be honest it’s not something Aston Martin naturally wants to do. They have to make small cars like this to balance out their CO2 emissions. That keep the green party happy, while Aston can continue making big V12 cars!
The two Cygnet Launch Edition models; White and Black, are available with either standard manual or optional CVT automated transmission and each will be produced for a strictly limited time. The power comes from a three-cylinder 1-liter engine.
The White Edition: It features a serene exterior; finished in Snow White paint with a mix of silver mesh, chrome brightwork and White Diamond turned alloy wheels. The interior of the White edition features seats hand trimmed in Pearl white leather with perforated Alcantara inserts, complemented by satin chrome. On the exterior, Aston Martin’s attention to detail is exemplified with the iconic wings badge appearing in matching white.
The Black Edition: features Magic Black metallic paint with a specially developed deep sea green effect, offset by matt black louvers and chrome brightwork. Inside, the seats and dash are finished in pure black full grain leather, perforated in a specially-developed diamond pattern. Dark chrome accents adorn the cabin, while the wings badges are rendered in black throughout.
Both models will also get a bespoke Bill Amberg five-piece luggage set, especially designed for and tailored to Cygnet.
