Like Mercedes, Aston Martin has brand recognition for particular styles of luxury vehicles. They are usually fast, stylish, and reassuringly expensive. However, the Aston Martin Cygnet was only expensive. Thankfully, Aston hadn’t completely lost the plot, as the small Toyota-based city car was a result of legislation requiring the brand to produce some ultra-economical cars. Essentially, the Cygnet is a rebadged Scion iQ with unique headlights, taillights, front grille, and interior. 300 sold globally at around $50,000 each, with the cars only available to owners of “real” Astons, which has now made them collector’s items. In fact, 301 were made in total, as a one-off V8-powered Cygnet was made from a skunkworks project inside Aston Martin.
