Aston Martin’s posh city car.
Remember the miniature Aston Martin based on the Toyota iQ; the Cygnet? Well, the city car has been given a makeover by colette, the Parisian fashion authority, to make it the “ultimate Tailor-Fit solution to city living.”
The new colette Cygnet is a collaboration between the Aston Martin Works Tailored in-house personalization service and fashion icon, colette. Aston Martin’s design team worked alongside their colette counterparts to create a unique and special model.
The new Cygnet colette car will feature many exclusive interior and exterior appointments. The exterior is fitted in a silky Lightning Silver paint and contrasted by colette blue styling details. Up front the Cygnet wears a race collection-inspired front bumper and hood livery. Blue mirror caps, blue diamond-turned wheels, and a chic “Cygnet & colette” badge set the Cygnet apart from the production models.
Under the Cygnet Colette model’s Lightning Silver coat is a swanky interior atmosphere. The entire interior was given a Bitter Chocolate color scheme after the company’s chocolate-brown Labrador mascot. Quilter leather adorns the seat and door inserts, and matches the quilted alcantara sun visors. Both of the rear seats come standard with quilted and hand-trimmed blue leather pillows. Each of the stainless-steel door handles are hand formed and engraved. Even the navigation displays a “Cygnet & colette” icon upon start up. Finishing off the interior is a special “Cygnet & colette” machined aluminum key ring with blue enameling.
“Aston Martin and colette are both cool brands that successfully blend modernity and innovation. It made perfect sense to work together and create this limited piece of automotive fashion for the city,” said Mark Reichman, Director of Design at Aston Martin. “The colette car is the first of the exclusive ‘Cygnet &’ collaborations. These cars will give Aston Martin a relevant platform to reach out to new customers in urban areas.”
The limited edition Aston Martin Cygnet colette will be available for order at the colette store in Paris by the end of the year for €48,995 (+/- 70,000 USD). Only 14 models will be produced by Aston Martin. Each model will also come with candy, a Paris guide, a custom Sigg bottle, and the latest colette compilation CDs.
