Sighting the Cygnet

Largest proportion of axed Aston Martin Cygnets were concentrated in Central London

Yesterday, we reported that Aston Martin sold only 150 of their super-mini Cygnet vehicles between announcing it in 2009 and axing it recently. The total– we’ve now been told – may actually have been as low as 110 and given that we’ve photographed a fair few of them, here we share photographs of 15 of them:

That 16.5% of the total production that we featured was captured within the boroughs of Westminster and Kensington & Chelsea speaks volumes. The Cygnet was indeed a car for drivers with more money than sense. Thank goodness it has now been consigned to history.
