Aston Martin Cygnet

Aston Martin and Colette collaborate on Cygnet

23 June 2011 - Aston Martin has joined forces with Parisian fashion authority colette to produce the strictly limited edition; 'Cygnet & colette' luxury city car. To celebrate the collaboration, 14 examples of the 'Cygnet & colette' city car will be hand-crafted via the company's personalisation service; Aston Martin Works Tailored which offers limitless options personalised precisely to customer specification through the marque's Works Service facility.

The Aston Martin design team worked closely with their counterparts at Colette to create the striking limited edition which features Lightning Silver paint with exclusive colette blue styling details including a race collection inspired front bumper and bonnet livery, mirror caps and diamond turned road wheels. The Bitter Chocolate themed interior takes inspiration from colette's mascot Oscar, the chocolate-brown Labrador.
