Luxury car maker's new city car can be fully customised
18 March 2010

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.

Our Verdict

Aston Martin Cygnet

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

At 30-50K I would expect so and I hope the colour is included in the price on a 10K city car in a very expensive suit!!!

Aston's definitely on the way to replace class for crass. They haven't showed us the gangsta, gold-chain version, but it's surely coming. We should have seen it coming with a German at the helm (anyone seen the colour combinations BMW, Porsche & Co use to showcase their customising divisions?)

Instead of Pimp my Ride, it'll be "Aston my IQ", and change me 30k quid for it, mate!

Why is this breaking news?

Its not going to be sold to the masses....

This has got to be the most comical and eco friendly car ever to be targeted at the aspiring drug dealer market.

18" wheels, certainly sir - gold or chrome?

Will sir be requiring the drinks cabinet to compiment the 5 LCD monitors?

I can't wait to see one being chased on police camera action...

IQ - Yo' officially 'bin pimped

Aston - Laudable to Laughable in just over a year.

The problem with this stupid car is that it does irreparable damage to how the Aston brand is perceived. Example, a new Vantage Coupe went past last night while I was out walking the dog, and I had a quiet giggle to myself wondering if whatever jerk-off was driving (lots of revs into a cul-de-sac, special) had ordered a Cygnet at home for 'the wife'.

I wonder if they will do it in grey to begin with which will gradually turn into white as time passes, like a real swan!

What a joke of a car!

Would you like a Cygnet to go with your 1-77? sir,your children could use it.

Wonder who'll be first to drive the new Aston as their preferred car of choice, James Bond or Jacques Clouseau?

if you want my opinion the toyota IQ is already overpriced! why not buy a secon hand iq, put some nice rims on it then pay off the mortgage!
