Aston Martin Cygnet Finally Justifies Aston’s Badge!

By  | 

What you’re looking at above is a picture of the Aston Martin Cygnet and it is a vehicle which most enthusiasts didn’t know exist. It cannot be avoided because the Cygnet has been an embarrassment to Aston Martin due to it having a city-car setup.

Unlike every other vehicles from the British carmaker, the Cygnet is produced with a 4-pot mill and this is against the company’s strong heritage in the V6, V8, V10 and V12 market. Aston Martin purists are disgusted with the vehicle but today, the hate can be washed away.

This is thanks too a one-off Cygnet that has decided to live up to the definition of Aston Martin. The carmaker brought the Cygnet to Goodwood Festival of Speed before remarking that the vehicle is operating on a V8 engine – sourced from the old Vantage S.

Aston remarked that a great deal of modifications has been made to accommodate the mill in the compact city car and the move is intended to clear the hate towards the vehicle. Even if its just a one-off production, we appreciate the thought and effort in making the Cygnet V8 happen.
