Modified Aston Martin V8 Vantage

About a week ago we bought you the news that Aston Martin is the coolest brand in the UK. Over the Atlantic Aston Martin’s are also very popular and that’s why many owners try to differentiate them from others. This V8 Vantage shown here has become a real piece of art.

The exterior has a special blue paintjob, D2 Forged VS1 wheels, a Vantage Collection V2 rear diffuser and a Vantage Collection V1 front lip. Inside you’ll find Vantage Collection custom floor mats together with Piano Black upper door panels. Besides that, the suspension has been tweaked by adding H&R Springs.

Next Aston Martin will be a luxury subcompact

Aston Martin made official what many industry watchers had already assumed; that it will be begin producing the tiny-but-luxurious Cygnet in 2011.

The Cygnet is a rebadged Toyota iQ equipped with the same 97hp 1.3-liter engine but outfitted with a high-end, sartorial interior that's been enveloped with hand-stitched leather. News sources are pegging the Cygnet with a price tag somewhere between $45,000 to $75,000, according to InsideLine.
