Aston Martin ‘Cygnet & colette’ limited edition priced at €48,995 ($70,550)


The last time we heard of the new Aston Martin Cygnet that was priced at about £30,995, but that figure got a big revision since then. Aston Martin has just announced the new price for the special edition Cygnet that will just make you laugh in amazement.

The new Aston Martin Cygnet, so called “Cygnet & colette”, will be priced at a whopping €48,995 ($70,550). And that is about £18,000 ($29,000) more than the entry-level Cygnet, which basically a re-trimmed Toyota iQ. If you know much about fashion at all, this limited edition Cygnet is design with Parisian fashion and style boutique, colette.

“The colette car is the first of the exclusive ‘Cygnet &’ collaborations,” said Aston Martin Director of Design, Marek Reichman. “These cars will give Aston Martin a relevant platform to reach out to new customers in urban areas.”

So what is this “colette” style all about? On the exterior, the Cygnet colette edition features a Lightning Silver paint with customized colette blue styling aspects including a race collection influenced front bumper and bonnet livery, mirror caps and diamond turned road wheels. And as for interior, the Cygnet colette gets a “Bitter Chocolate” theme interior with hand-trimmed leather and quilted aspects.

And other exclusive components include in the $70,550 price are: stainless steel hand formed and engraved door handle badges, ‘Cygnet & colette’ branded hand enamelled boot badging manufactured by Thomas Fattorini, quilted Alcantara sun visors to complement the quilted leather door and seat inserts, hand quilted colette blue leather occasional cushions for the rear seats, Cygnet & colette’ branding on satellite navigation start up, and last but not least is a unique ‘Cygnet & colette’ key ring machined from solid aluminium with blue enamelling.

The Aston Martin ‘Cygnet & colette’ will be in a limited-edition run, which only 14 units will be built, and it is expected to make first deliveries by the end of this year.
