Aston Martin Announces Cygnet Launch Editions

Aston Martin has confirmed launch details for the Cygnet city car. The Cygnet city car is based on the Toyota iQ, and will be available at first in two special launch edition models; White and Black.

Both models are available with either standard manual or optional CVT automatic transmission. Aston Martin did not release any engine details, but most likely the standard 1.33 litre petrol engine with around 97 bhp found in the iQ is under the bonnet.

Cygnet Launch Edition White is 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.

In contrast, Cygnet Launch Edition Black 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 Cygnet Launch Editions also come with a bespoke Bill Amberg five-piece luggage set, especially designed for and tailored to Cygnet.

Cygnet production commences in April and is available to order now through Aston Martin’s European dealership network. Prices start from £30,995, which is cheap for Aston Martin, but not that cheap for rebadged Toyota iQ with higher quality materials…
