Monster Aston Martin V12 Cygnet Rumored
text size: A- A+
But we’d never have thought such a car would come from famed British maker of desirable automobiles Aston Martin. They have plenty of sweet handling machines, powered by V8 and V12 engines, but also a little front-wheel drive city car.
The little Toyota iQ-based Cygnet has never become the success they were hoping it to be, but perhaps with an infusion of muscle and testosterone, it could become something a whole lot more desirable.
Back in August, we heard the Cygnet was getting a V8 engine from the Vantage, presumably in the back. However, Autocar magazine now comes out with a new report saying it’s actually the 6-liter V12. How in the world did they manage that? The bonnet on a DBS is almost as long as the whole Cygnet.
Whether or not this latest report is true or not is up for debate, but the fact is this one-off probably exists. Customer special or April Fools Joke?
