The ultimate city car: Aston Martin Cygnet V8
This is the more expensive city car on the market, but also the more powerful.
Here is the incredible return of Aston Martin Cygnet at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2018. This is a news regarding a real historic citycar, produced from 2011 to 2013 and sold in Italy at a guide price(optional excluded) of 39,150 euros. It was a very well-designed marketing strategy , on a mechanical basis that was that of a common Toyota Aygo, or with 1.3 engine with 99 hp petrol.
Now Cygnet returns to break any record for a car that is just 307 cm long. Cygnet thus becomes Cygnet V8, redesigned from the Q by Aston Martin department for a wealthy customer who wanted an extreme variant but in the furrows of the prestige of the English brand. All to prove if the engine chosen is a petrol-aspirated 4.7-liter V8 engine. It was conceivable that the technicians of the Q department should stiffen the frame, as well as completely redesign the bodywork to widen the carriageways and the wheel arches, just to accommodate 19 “diameter wheels. Gritty right outside, in a traditional British green, Cygnet V8 inside breaks any link with the luxurious citycar of which it is distant relative: coatings reduced to a minimum, bucket enveloping seats, racing and racing steering wheel. Completely unavoidable.
The true stroke of the Cygnet, this time, is nothing more than the pure power applied to a car that seems even unable to physically contain the 4.7-liter V8 engine already seen on the past generation of Aston Martin V8 Vantage. We are talking about 430 hp of maximum power and 490 Nm of torque, all based on a rear-wheel drive car of just 1,375 kilos in weight. To be clear, the maximum speed reaches 274 km / h and acceleration starts from 0 to 96 km / h in just 4.2 seconds. “The Ultimate City Car” “has nothing to add, and the price will remain at the moment reserved.
