Luxury car maker's new city car can be fully customised

The Aston Martin Cygnet will be available in any colour a customer wants - as with every other car in the Aston range.

The Cygnet city car, a reworked version of the Toyota iQ, will cost £30,000 to £50,000 when it goes on sale later this year.

"Part of the point of the Cygnet is that it will offer a level of customisation not normally associated with this class of car," said an Aston spokesman.

"As with any other car in the Aston range, a customer can ask for any colour scheme and we will do our best to make it work, either by creating a paint colour or creating a wrap for the car."

Aston - why we built the Cygnet

To publicise the extent that the Cygnet can be customised, Aston Martin has launched an online configurator for the car. Styles on offer include those matching the Aston Martin racing teams, plus zebra and tiger skin versions.

The Aston Martin Cygnet is perfect for inner-city fans of the brand. For the rest, it's an expensive and quirky distraction

Re: Aston Cygnet - in any colour you want

While there's a lot of negative reaction about this car winging about various forums, we should remember;

This is a reasonable way for AM to slash their corporate Co2 output.

The typical customer likes the 'irony' of a tiny car being stuffed to the gills full of bespoke leather and equipment.

Amongst the target customer are some extrovert, eccentric characters who would welcome the attention driving one of these things will bring.

The sheer discussion this car has generated is potentially a good thing for AM..I just wish the colour-schemes had a little more taste. But then, what do i know, i haven't made enough money to afford an Aston-Martin...

The more I look at the pictures - the more I end up in disbelief!

What are they thinking! I have lost so much respect for Aston Martin.

And somone else has said it before, whenever you see a real Aston now, you just think straight away of this stupid thing and laugh!!

I wonder if Top Gear will have to move all the Astons out of that fridge and waaaaaaaaaay down the cool wall. It has to be done now!

If the Cygnet contributes to a more financially stable Aston Martin, one that doesn`t go from crisis to crisis every few years then I hope they sell thousands

I don't see why they need the IQ to be financially stable. Aston are the size of Ferrari and Ferrari has been profitable for years. If Aston produces a 4-door lagonda (A real luxury one, not a 4-door coupe) then their volume will increase way more... Anyway do the math: if Aston sells 5,000 craps at 30K, it will make 150,000,000 a year. Is it really worth it to cheapen the brand for it?

Well enthusiasts lead the revolultion: Aston, BMW and Porsche bosses are getting out of their mind! Guillotine!!!!!!!!!!!!
