These are the first official pictures of the completed Aston Martin Cygnet, a luxury commuter car based on the Toyota iQ.

"The Cygnet concept represents a creative, environmentally conscious solution, being small, yet with presence – and highly fuel efficient, now combined with the prestige of Aston Martin’s luxury brand ownership," says Aston Martin.

Work on the concept continues. Aston Martin hopes to put Cygnet into production in 2010, initially targeting its existing customers in the UK and Europe.
