If you were looking forward to getting inside an Aston Martin and thought the compact, somewhat affordable Cygnet was your chance, think again. In the latest issue of the Aston Martin Magazine, the Gaydon automaker says that the only people who can buy the Cygnet are those who currently own another Aston Martin model.
The Aston Martin Cygnet, a spin-off of the Toyota iQ, will be powered by a 1.3L engine making 97-hp, allowing it to hit a top speed of 105 mph.
CEO Ulrich Bez says that the idea of the Cygnet makes sense since environmental issues are “front of conscience.” He said that the Cygnet “is akin to an exclusive tender for a luxury yacht.”
Aston will produce about 2,000 units of the Cygnet with prices starting around £20,000 (about $35,000 USD).
