If you're anything like us, you've been waiting to unleash the full might of the Aston Martin customization program on the Toyota iQ Cygnet. What colors, both hideous and delicious, will the pint-sized Aston boast? What kind of leather will coddle the behinds of the overpaid and tasteless? Fear not, friends. All these questions and more are now easily answered with nothing more than a visit to the brand-new Aston Martin website. From there, you can easily configure your Cygnet in any fashion possible.

Unfortunately, there are four 16-inch wheels to choose from, so if you want any serious rollers, you're going to need to turn your attentions to the aftermarket. Should you find yourself with a heap of time on your hands, we highly recommend heading over to the new Aston Martin site to wile away the day. The good news is that you can build up any number of the automaker's products, including the sexy new Virage, should the Cygnet fail to inspire.

      I might be the only one here, but I LOVE the Cygnet. Would I prefer it was 100% micro-mini Aston Martin? Sure! But I understand they just can't absorb that type of investment. I would drive the Cygnet in a New York minute if I could. 100% yes. Just buying it at Manhattan Aston Martin, or Boston Aston Martin would be fun beyond belief.

        Sorry to burst your bubble, but you wouldn't be able to do that; I'm nearly completely sure you can't buy a Cygnet by itself, from Aston. You are given the option buying one as an accessory for your real Aston for when you're popping around town or something. That said, some Aston owners might try and make a profit by selling it to people like you for slightly more than they paid for it.

          yeah I remember reading that, thanks. Tell you the truth, even if it was only $5/month, I'd have a hard time justifying it with my present monthly budget, lol. Pipe Dreams, as they say. It's cute, and I bet the leather smells really nice.

          Aston is going to pretend that is the case until they don't meet their required sales figures. Remember, Aston is doing this to bring down their fleet average fuel consumption. They must sell a certain number of cars each year, by any means. If they can't make the sales to their core customers, they'll open it up to everyone. And it's exceedingly likely they'll have trouble meeting the required sales from their core customers.

      Is the Cygnet coming to the US? I really LOVE it and would love to buy one. I think it would make an excellent luxurious little city car. I don't get why people hate this, I think it would be perfect for an Aston Martin fan, who can't necessarily afford the big ticket Aston's. That way you get Toyota reliability, but with Aston Martin styling. What more could you ask for!

        I would rather have the AM engine.. AM styling? it totally looks like the iQ.. with body kits here and there that shouts "PIMPED MY RIDE" unless there are more substantial differences with the car.. i don't see why you can't just buy the iQ and custom it..

      Is this the Boxster of Aston Martin? Will all the real Aston owners look down on the owners of this car. Unless they are attractive women/girls? I would like to know who the first 50 drivers of this Cygnet will be.

      I was with it a 100% until I got to the headlights. Bi-halogen? Driving the dark and rainy British B roads at +100mph is not safe without HID's.

        There is no lighting difference between HIDs and projector halogens, just the color. The maximum light output is capped by law and there's no difficultly meeting that figure with halogen technology.

      The little citycar is heavily based on the Toyota iQ, but Aston say the Cygnet will be hand-assembled at their factory at Gaydon in Warwickshire, England, alongside the company's Grand Tourers. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110514014248AAgwwmy

      has anyone else noticed under the wheel section it says "16 SPOKE CRAP"? i lol'd. also, i think it's cute, and a very clever way of meeting future emissions regulations. this is how supercar companies will survive, people.

      Neat little grocery getter for the lord of the manor to take into town while the chauffeur is shtupping the lady. Or change places any way you like.

      Overstock Coupon Code isn't at the top of the pecking order. You might discover that you enjoy writing a couple of things in relation to this happening. If you don't understand this, you're a noob. Doing this does not need any work. I've been through hell and high water. Seriously, that problem is a big circumstance in this stuff. Using this is a complex shortcut to find the location of more types of Overstock Coupon Code. I'm throwing caution to the wind and keeping it running for a while. http://overstockdiscountdeals.wordpress.com/

      i know people with money who drive Smart-Four-2's; i know, i know! it's an oxymoron but they feel they are making an effort for saving the environment; i would bet that they will buy the Cygnet; don't know what the mileage will be but at least they would give it a try; after all, who wouldn't want to say they own an Astin-Martin?

      This car would actually be pretty cool if you mod the hell out of it like 160-200hp, lowered and tuned suspension... bring it up to true Aston performance standards. It would make a crazy sleeper car.
