Externally, the limited-edition car features Lightning Silver paint with colette blue details, including “race-inspired front bumper and bonnet livery, mirror caps and diamond turned road wheels,” according to Aston.

Inside, the limited Cygnet gets a “Bitter Chocolate-themed interior,” with Alcantara sun visors, blue leather ‘occasional cushions’ in the rear and Cygnet & colette badging.

Aston Martin director of design Marek Reichman said: “The colette car is the first of the exclusive ‘Cygnet and’ collaborations. These cars will give Aston Martin a relevant platform to reach out to new customers in urban areas.”
