Would 007 recognize his pudgy new Aston Martin?

16-Dec-2009 • Bond Style

Aston Martin just released the first official images of the Cygnet – a new luxury commuter concept car and a radical departure from the sleek, sexy sports cars for which it is known - reports USA Today.

Aston says the 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." All we can say is "wow:"

Aston is best known for producing the sports cars that secret agent James Bond drives in the 007 movies. Usually they are outfitted with machine guns and ejector seats. While Cygnet takes sharp turn for the brand, it could be the perfect car for a paunchy, middle-aged Bond, who long ago lost his license to kill and now works as a British bureaucrat.

Aston says work on the concept is ongoing and will continue into 2010 when it is hoped that it will become a production reality initially available to Aston Martin customers in the U.K. and Europe. No word about the USA.
