Say Goodbye to the Aston Martin Cygnet?


We're really hoping this rumor becomes a reality.

Although nothing has been fully confirmed just yet, it appears that fans (if there are any) of the Aston Martin Cygnet city car are about to be quite upset. According to some recent rumors, production of the cheapest and smallest model in the AM lineup has already ceased. The only Cygnets that are still around are those sitting in dealer showrooms and once they’re gone they’re gone. The Cygnet is nothing but a rebadged Toyota iQ that carries a base price of around $30,000.

Still no word on whether AM has any plans to replace its fuel-saving model with something similar. Never a strong seller in any market, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to assume that AM would prefer to leave the Cygnet in the history books and avoid the city car segment from now on. Now that the recently announced engine development agreement with Mercedes-Benz’s AMG division will soon be underway, AM will be able to fully focus on high-performance elegance.
