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.

Aston Martin hoped to sell 4,000 Cygnets per year, and things looked promising when demand was higher than supply – that is, until we realized the luxury automaker was taking too long to convert the Toyota iQ (Scion iQ in the US) donor cars on which Cygnets are based into luxurious city cars.

Here's to hoping Aston Martin finds another way to raise the average fuel economy of its vehicle lineup.
