Aston Martin Cygnet Launched from Inside Harrods in UK

City Cars

Aston Martin's Cygnet luxury car has finally had its global debut, and the venue of choice was Harrods department store in Knightsbridge. Some may be familiar with Harrods department store because of its owner, Muhammad Al-Fayed, while others perhaps have come across it during their travels in jolly ol' London This was the frist time a final production version of the Cygnet has been put on show in public.

The Cygnet is the smallest in the Aston line, and is based on the Toyota iQs built in Japan. The design and build work of the vehicle is carried out at Aston's headquarters, and it will be put into full-scale production at Aston's headquarters in 2011. CEO Ulrich Bez defended the Cygnet's creation, stating that it's designed to help Aston lower its fleet-average CO2 emissions in the face of strict upcoming EU legislation. Whatever the reasoning is, you will probably find the same thing in the iQ only for a lot less.
