Aston Martin Cygnet & colette

Cygnet colette 1 at Aston Martin Cygnet & colette

This is a limited edition, bespoke version of Aston Martin Cygnet by French fashion brand colette. And it has cushions at the back!

Yes, it comes with, among other girly features, blue leather cushions so guys would automatically stay away from it. Although each car will be personalised precisely to customer specification by Aston Martin specialists, but main features on all cars include Lightning Silver paint with exclusive colette blue styling details including a race collection inspired front bumper and bonnet livery, mirror caps and diamond turned road wheels.

The interior features a bitter chocolate theme from colette’s mascot Oscar, the chocolate-brown Labrador. The Works Tailored team has created unique ‘Cygnet & colette’ elements including:

  • Stainless steel hand formed and engraved door handle badges
  • ‘Cygnet & colette’ branded hand enamelled boot badging manufactured by     Thomas Fattorini
  • Quilted Alcantara sun visors to complement the quilted leather door and seat inserts
  • Hand trimmed, quilted colette blue leather occasional cushions for the rear seats
  • ‘Cygnet & colette’ branding on satellite navigation start up
  • A unique ‘Cygnet & colette’ key ring machined from solid aluminium with blue enamelling

The car also comes with some goodies, as they say, to make passing time in traffic more fun. They include candies, a Wallpaper* Paris guide, a custom Sigg bottle to stay hydrated and the latest colette compilation CDs. Oh Dear!

And the price of this mobile bedroom? a whopping €48,995. That is an awful lot for something that’s basically a Toyota iQ with a posh badge, some leather, cushions and chocolates! But you are paying for the badges on the car. If you are an Aston Martin owner, this little fella could be the perfect gift for your wife or girlfriend.
