A pair of Aston Martin Cygnet subcompacts will be testing their worth at this weekend’s Bridgestone Eco-Rally. The two Cygnets will be making the drive through the extended route of the Eco-Rally, going from Exeter College, Oxford to The Mall, London taking advantage of a 56.5-mpg rating along the way.

One of the Cygnets will be shown off in Seychelles Blue, the same color that was recently seen on the DB6 Mark II Volante driven by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at their recent wedding. A third support Cygnet will also be there in flashy Flouro Orange, a color that has become the hallmark of London-based designer, Tom Dixon.

The two Cygnets will be driven by Darren Turner and David King. Turner is an Aston Martin Racing regular while King is Aston Martin’s Director of Special Projects and Motorsport. This will be Aston Martin’s debut at the Eco-Rally event.
