Earlier this year, we saw photos of Aston Martin designers working on a clay-covered Toyota iQ in the studio and applying typical Aston styling queues to it. Creating a leather clad urban commuter car seems like a dubious proposition for a brand like Aston Martin. Nonetheless, the Cygnet is now complete and Aston has released a fresh batch of photos of the car.
While the Aston Martin face is well-suited to the extended nose of a DBS or Rapide, it frankly looks a bit overwrought on the front of the tiny Toyota. On the inside, virtually all of the available surfaces have been covered in red and black leather. For the time being, the Cygnet is a concept only, but Aston says it hopes to have it in production in 2010 for European customers.
