Cygnet - a new mini car from Aston Martin

What do you think of when it comes to Aston Martin? Speed, agility, luxury, powerful engines? Well, forget all about those long forgotten dreams. These days Aston Martin deals with small city cars.
Yes, you're reading it well; Aston Martin has launched a mini car, the Cygnet. Actually, according to the British car manufacturer, we're talking about the ultimate city car. A very expensive one if you're asking us.
It seems that this little street genie will feature a price of 49,340 $ about the same as a BMW 3 series, an Audi A4 or a Mercedes C Class. Oh, and about 33.500$ more than the cheapest Toyota IQ.
This undoubtedly expensive city car comes with leather seats, passive entry, GPS navigation, heated front seats and of course, a unique Aston Martin styling.
The British constructer has also announced to special versions of the car, dubbed White and Black. That's ingenious.
For the moment we don't have any engine specifications, but there are rumors about a 97 hp Toyota made 1.33 Dual VVT-i engine.
The Cygnet will be launched in April and sold for the moment only in Europe but Aston Martin wants to expand the market for its small city car until 2012.
