Aston Martin Cygnet: Black and White Editions
Aston Martin has confirmed the full specifications of the Aston Cygnet and will launch the city car with this pair of special editions, called Black and White.
The two Aston Martin Cygnet launch edition models; White and Black, are available with either standard manual or optional CVT automated transmission and each will be produced for a strictly limited time, the company has announced.
The Aston Cygnet White brings together a serene exterior; finished in Snow White paint with a mix of silver mesh, chrome brightwork and White Diamond turned alloy wheels. The interior of the White edition features seats hand trimmed in Pearl white leather with perforated Alcantara inserts, complemented by satin chrome. On the exterior, Aston Martin’s attention to detail is exemplified with the iconic wings badge appearing in matching white.
In contrast, Aston Cygnet Black features Magic Black metallic paint with a specially developed deep sea green effect, offset by matt black louvers and chrome brightwork. Inside, the seats and dash are finished in pure black full grain leather, perforated in a specially-developed diamond pattern. Dark chrome accents adorn the cabin, while the wings badges are rendered in black throughout.
Both Cygnet Launch Editions also come with a bespoke Bill Amberg five-piece luggage set, especially designed for and tailored to Cygnet. Available in a contemporary combination of black leather with technical fabric, the set comprises glove box bag, removable door pocket bag, holdall, garment bag and a collapsible tote bag.
The Aston Martin Cygnet is essentially a rebadged version of the Toyota iQ city car--which is headed to the U.S. as a Scion model in the near future. The Cygnet will use standard Toyota iQ mechanical components and proportions, but with different wheels and tires.
The Cygnet will be powered by 1.3 liter 97hp three-cylinder engine, enough the little Cygnet to hit 62mph in 11.6 seconds and top 106mph, with average 55.4mpg UK (46.13mpg US) while emitting 113g/km of CO2.
The Cygnet will be the smallest Aston Martin ever at just 3m long. The cabin will not only be high luxury but equipped with the latest systems including a HDD sat nav system, a music hard drive and an iPod dock.
