Aston Martin Cygnet (2010–2013)
Looked like an April Fool joke. But in fact Aston Martin has developed a new luxury commuter concept: the ‘Cygnet’ which offers customers a distinctive, intelligent and exclusive solution for urban travel in style and luxury.
The Cygnet provides Aston Martin trademark design in a commuter car package based on the Toyota iQ with a Euro NCAP 5-star safety package.
Aston Martin Chief Executive, Dr Ulrich Bez said: “Much work is still required, but I am confident that this project could become reality in the not too distant future. This concept – akin to an exclusive tender to a luxury yacht – will allow us to apply Aston Martin design language, craftsmanship and brand values to a completely new segment of the market.”
“The offering of a ‘Cygnet’ with a DBS, DB9 or Vantage is a unique combination of opposites and a novel transport solution allowing intelligent and sensitive mobility on an exclusive and innovative level.”
