Aston Martin is pleased to announce the launch of its luxurious city car; Cygnet, in Hong Kong and Japan.

Initially available in European markets from its launch in mid-2011, Cygnet is the bespoke luxury city car, designed with ultra-compact packaging and low-emission engine technology. Craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail characterize each Cygnet, and high levels of personalization are exemplified by the recently enhanced choice of materials and colors including six ‘Race Collection’ paint schemes, hexagon perforated leather and quilted Alcantara.

Also offered in two distinctive and limited Launch Editions, Cygnet joins Aston Martin’s established pedigree of cars.  From the breathtaking One-77 supercar and the elegant yet brutal V12 Zagato to the powerful Vantage range and new Virage to the exquisite DB9, DBS and four-door Rapide, every Aston Martin expresses the core values of Power, Beauty and Soul.

Starting from $603,578 HKD and ¥4,750,000 YEN with its compact but neatly-proportioned form, Cygnet is clearly recognizable as an Aston Martin. The marquee's characteristic design language, including signature details such as the metal grille, elongated side strake and inverted rear lights, establish a distinguished, solid form with strong road presence.

Cygnet benefits from highly sophisticated active and passive safety technology to protect driver, passengers and pedestrians, with a range of breakthrough features rarely seen in small cars. Cygnet delivers everything the city driver needs, from essential equipment like ABS, nine airbags, stability control, electronic brake assist and retractable door mirrors to a luxurious interior specification, including keyless entry and start and heated seats, all packed into a car that is just three meters long.

The Aston Martin Cygnet is a car without compromise, as dedicated to urban functionalism as its sporting siblings are to driver involvement, dynamics and long-distance comfort. With space for up to four people, Cygnet is compact, safe, efficient and highly maneuverable.

The Cygnet is available to order now in Hong Kong and Japan from the Aston Martin dealership network with deliveries expected in the first quarter of 2012.
