Remember our story on the Cygnet, the small car by Aston Martin based on the tiny Toyota iQ? Aston Martin have now completed work on the exterior and the interior styling of the car and in process has released fresh images of the finished car.
The styling is a bit iffy to put it bluntly. The typical Aston Martin grille at the front looks a little too big for the car’s size while scoops look a little out of place on the small bonnet. The rest of the car is pretty much Toyota iQ with small touches like scoops on the sides and reprofiled LED tail lights.
On the insides, almost every surface has been draped with expensive looking red and black leather. While still a concept, Aston Martin is hoping to put it into production by 2010 for European customers.

Aston Martin today releases the first official images of the ‘Cygnet’ – a new luxury commuter concept car.The Cygnet concept represents a creative, environmentally conscious solution, being small, yet with presence – and highly fuel efficient, now combined with the prestige of Aston Martin’s luxury brand ownership.
Work on the concept is ongoing and will continue into 2010 when it is hoped that it will become a production reality initially available to Aston Martin customers in the UK and Europe.
