French flair for Aston Cygnet

Aston Martin has teamed up with French fashion store Colette to produce a special-edition version of its Cygnet city car.

The Cygnet & Colette special edition has silver paintwork, with blue detailing on the front bumper and bonnet, and blue highlights on the alloy wheels.

Inside, theres a chocolate-brown leather interior, quilted Alcantara sun visors and Colette-blue 'occasional cushions' for the rear seats. You get a few treats, too, such as sweets, a guide to Paris, a custom Sigg bottle and four Colette compilation CDs.

However, if you want one of the cars, youll have to head across the Channel because the Cygnet and Colette model is available to order only from Colettes Paris store.

You'll need to be quick, too, because just 14 of the 48,995 (43,705) cars will be built.

The Cygnet & Colette is the first of a number of special-edition Cygnet models. Aston Martin says that more will follow, to appeal to buyers in different cities.
