We’re sorry Aston but we don’t see Power, Beauty or Soul here. If you’re really wondering how much power the Cygnet offers – well it’s the same as the Toyota iQ with a 1.33 liter 4-cylinder engine making 97-hp and 92 lb-ft of torque. That will allow 0 to 62 mph to come in 2 days (11.8 seconds exactly) with a top speed of 106 mph.

Those interested in Hong Kong and Japan can start ordering now. Deliveries should begin in the first quarter of 2012.
