The Aston Martin Cygnet wasn't exactly a hot seller during its two-year production run, which ended as of late last month. But despite British racing icon Sir Stirling Moss gifting one to his wife for her birthday, it seems that Britons didn't really care for it either: only 150 Cygnets were sold in Britain, Aston Martin's home country, Reuters reports.

According to a report in Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, the Aston Martin Cygnet has gone out of production. Although its name means "little swan," it never really got away from being the ugly-yet-seemingly-necessary duckling in the English automaker's lineup. Not for lack of trying, though, with Aston Martin dressing up the Toyota (or Scion) iQ in the finest duds it had at its Gaydon factory in order to disguise the very-un-Aston-like 1.3-liter, 97-horsepower engine and baby-boot styling.
