The Aston Martin Cygnet is an absolutely insane vehicle, and surely the most ridiculous luxury car ever — and today I’m reviewing it. I’m going to show you allll the quirks and features of the Aston Martin Cygnet, and I’m also going to drive the Cygnet and show you what it’s like behind the wheel.

The Aston Martin Cygnet is a rebadged variant of the Toyota/Scion iQ marketed by Aston Martin beginning with model year 2011—enabling Aston Martin to comply with the 2012 European Union-imposed fleet average emissions regulations.It was developed under the codename P298.
The Cygnet featured revisions to the exterior and interior but shared other specifications with the iQ, having a 97 bhp 72 kW 1.3L inline-four engine,it produced 110 g of CO2/km and fuel consumption of 58.9 mpg‑US 3.99 L/100 km.
The Cygnet was cancelled due to disastrously low sales, with the car reaching only 150 units in the UK (approximately 300 in total) rather than its annual target of 4000.//wikipedia
