To celebrate the start of production, the new Aston Martin Cygnet will be available in two special launch editions, each exemplifying the bespoke nature of this unique car.
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 limited time.
Based on the Toyota iQ, the Cygnet is a bespoke luxury commuter car, designed to take you into the heart of the city, with ultra-compact packaging and low-emission technology. These efficiencies are paired with the manufacturing and craft skill that is associated with Aston Martin. Craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail characterize each Cygnet, and the extremely high levels of interior finish are exemplified by the choice of materials and colors on these two unique models.
Cygnet Launch Edition White brings together Snow White paint with a mix of silver mesh, chrome brightwork and White diamond-turned wheels. The interior features seats hand trimmed in Pearl white leather with perforated Alcantara inserts, complemented by satin chrome. On the exterior, Aston Martin’s badge appeara in 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, specially designed for and tailored to the Cygnet. Available in a contemporary combination of black leather with technical fabric, the set comprises a glovebox bag, removable door pocket bag, holdall, garment bag and a collapsible tote bag. Cygnet production commences in April 2011 and is initially on sale now through Aston Martin’s European dealership network, with the company actively working on expanding market availability by 2012. Prices start from £30,995 ($49000).
