Aston Martin Cygnet might get a V12 version image

The British based automaker Aston Martin is planning to develop a V12 version of the Cygnet model if there will be sufficient customer demand.

The Aston Martin V12 Cygnet is probably the biggest failure in the company’s lineup in sales figures terms and now the car manufacturer is planning to make the hatchback hotter by developing a V12 variant of the model. The V12 version is feasible and it will hit the production line if the company will get sufficient customer demand. Rumor has it that the V12 engine found on the new DB9 and Vantage will be detuned if it will make its way under the hood of the Cygnet and if it will indeed make it into production, it will probably be a project car, just like the Nissan Juke R, so expect a whopping starting price.

As a reminder, the Aston Martin Cygnet is actually a rebadged version of the Toyota iQ, upgraded with leather and slightly modified only to be sold at an over-rated price. The Aston Martin Cygnet is a 2.2 hot hatch powered by a 1.3 liter straight four-cylinder engine which is developing a total output of 98 BHP and it is emitting just 110 g of CO2 every kilometer, while burning an average of 3.99 liters / 100 km (58.9 mpg US or 70.7 mph UK).
