Intimidating Aston Martin Cygnet Gets Axed

Aston Martin Cygnet

The little Aston that could has officially received the axe. The Aston Martin Cygnet will no longer be produced, which does not exactly come as a shock to most. While there was a time in 2011 that production orders were high, in the end the company could barely give them away.

The Aston Martin Cygnet fits neatly in most spaces. Just slip it on the yacht next to the jet skis. 

To say the Cygnet was a departure from standard Aston Martin fare is an understatement. 

The Aston Martin Cygnet is actually a gussied-up Toyota IQ that was created to appeal to green types and adhere to new EU fuel-efficiency regulations. You can imagine how difficult it is for a company like Aston Martin to fall in line with regulations when their passion is producing high-performance exotic sports cars. Overall, the little Cygnet made for a nice city car for commutes, but not exactly something you would want to show off to your buddies. People attracted to brands like Aston Martin do not want a motorcycle side car on wheels perched in their garage. read more
