Aston Martin Cygnet at Harrods store image

Aston Martin’s new luxury city car; Cygnet – which will go into production in 2011 – is making its global debut at Harrods in Knightsbridge, the world’s most prestigious department store.

Located in the heart of Knightsbridge, the celebrated store has been at the forefront of luxury retail since it was founded in 1849. Offering the finest merchandise from this most prominent of London locations, as well as from satellite sites around the world, Harrods provides unrivalled choice and a bespoke personal service that attracts loyal customers as well as a host of international visitors.


The Aston Martin Cygnet will go into production in 2011 at the company’s global headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire in England. The car will be the eighth major production car Aston Martin has introduced at its facility since 2004.
Cygnet will be available to view at Harrods until Saturday 11th December with the car on sale now through Aston Martin’s European dealership network.

Prices are not yet announced, although we understand £30,000 shouldn’t be too wide of the mark for customers to get one on their (tiny) drive. That’s without options too, so once the no-doubt spectacular individual additions are announced, expect that number to spiral.

Each car will be hand-finished with an almost unlimited range of customisation. However, there will be no change to the 1.3-litre, 99bhp Toyota engine.
