Aston Martin & Colette Create Bespoke Cygnet City Car - Web Exclusive

Aston Martin has joined forces with Paris fashion authority “colette” to produce a limited edition ‘Cygnet & colette’ luxury city car.

Jun 23, 2011

To celebrate the collaboration, 14 examples of the ‘Cygnet & colette’ city car will be handcrafted by the Aston Martin Works Tailored, which offers limitless options to customer specification through the marque’s world famous Works Service facility.

The Aston Martin design team worked closely with their counterparts at colette to create the limited edition, which features Lightning Silver paint with exclusive colette blue styling details, including a race-inspired front bumper and hood livery, mirror caps and diamond-turned wheels.

The Bitter Chocolate-themed interior takes inspiration 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 trunk badging manufactured by Thomas Fattorini; Quilted Alcantara sunvisors 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 keyring machined from solid aluminum with blue enameling. Aston Martin Director of Design, Marek Reichman said: “The colette car is the first of the exclusive ‘Cygnet &’ collaborations. These cars will give Aston Martin a relevant platform to reach out to new customers in urban areas.”

Since opening its doors 14 years ago in March 1997, colette has reinvented the concept of retail, becoming a Parisian landmark. The state of the art store is the first stop for many visiting the French Capital, thanks to the incredible selection of exclusive, unusual and beautiful luxury items.

This bespoke Cygnet is an expression of colette’s values and style and the perfect choice for city driving. It comes with a selection of items including candies, a Wallpaper Paris guide, a custom Sigg bottle and the latest colette compilation CDs.

Orders for the 14 ‘Cygnet & colette’ cars can be placed through the colette store in Paris for delivery by the end of the year. Prices start from €48,995 (about $70,000).
