Aston Martin revealed yesterday its Cygnet city car concept which is largely inspired by European microcar Toyota iQ.
Aston’s traditional grille is laid in front and center, giving personality to this city car. The taillights also have the Aston’s style, while the inside got sumptuous red and black leather.
Strangely though it may seem, the micro-Aston is considered to be a second car for one who owns the traditional DB9 or V8 Vantage. The Cygnet is suitable for daily usage, providing the much needed luxuries. The traditional customers can now save and enjoy their sports coupes for spirited driving on the weekends.
As a plus, this new concept car meets CO2 standards (or CAFE, if the car were offered here).
Aston Martin is confident that although this is just a concept, we will be surprised see the car on the streets by late 2010.
