Aston Martin‘s Cygnet minicar will come to the United States sometime in 2012 according to Automotive News. The Cygnet will reportedly cost $35,000 despite minimal changes from the Toyota iQ it’s based on.

The Cygnet is a risky move for Aston Martin; a product like this is conceivably a good idea in places like London, where a congestion charge applies to most vehicles driving in the downtown core, or in traffic-ridden locales like Manhattan, Miami or Los Angeles. Outside of these small niches, it’s hard to imagine who would buy a Cygnet for any reason at all.

    Me like!  However, the rumor is the US Cygnet is only for sale for existing Aston owners.  $35k is relative cheap given its owners own other $120k+ AM models in their heated 4-car garages.  This little vehicle would be perfect for their spoiled high school/college kids.

    For plebeian like myself, I am hoping some third party fabricators are ‘burning the mid-night oil’ on the Cygnet kit for my pedestrian Scion iQ.  LOL.
