Cygnet concept car photos released

Aston Martin has released official pictures of the Cygnet concept car.

The British car firm, best known for producing sports cars, has designed the new luxury concept car based on the compact Toyota iQ.

With the iQ technology, Aston Martin claims that the Cygnet will have exceptional space efficiency, fuel economy and low emissions, as well as boasting the luxury and quality that its owners expect.

In addition to this, the Cygnet - which will enable easy commuting in the city - can be an alternative to an expensive supercar.

A production version, which could reach customers in 2010, will only be available to existing Aston Martin owners.

The car firm claims that the Cygnet will be a eco-friendly car and its C02 emissions reduced to suit with the forthcoming legislation.
