Billed as the "ultimate city vehicle", which it definitely is, the V8 Cygnet borrows its 430-horsepower, 4.7-liter V8 from the Vantage S.
Aston Martin Vice President and Special Operations Officer, David King said: "The V8 Cygnet shows the fun side of both Aston Martin and its customers".
In what might be the most freaky example of a factory customer commission yet, Q by Aston Martin has revealed details of a weird and wonderful V8-powered Cygnet.
The Cygnet's chassis, which is based on that of the Toyota IQ, has been extensively modified with a new bulkhead and transmission tunnel, providing space for a seven-speed Sportshift II (also taken from the previous Vantage) automatic gearbox and shortened Vantage driveshaft to power the rear wheels.
Power is rated at an identical 430bhp as the V8 Vantage S, but thanks to the compact body, the kerb weight is just 1375kg, giving the V8 Cygnet a 313bhp/tonne power-to-weight ratio.
One of the most exciting, extreme and pocket-sized creations ever to wear the famous Aston Martin wings made its world debut at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Nicki Minaj's $5000 Cardi B Baby Present Revealed
An insider appeared to confirm the lavish gift, explaining: 'The basket was bought minutes after the birth announcement was made. Despite the talk show host liking the rapper, the fact that she went with a "K" moniker like the Kardashians is bothering her.
"I am sure that it will amaze and thrill people when they see and hear it on the hill at the Festival of Speed".
Developed in-house by Aston Martin engineers, the V8 Cygnet is a showcase of the levels that Q by Aston Martin can go to if a customer so desires. The sub-frames and suspension were also carried forward from the previous generation Vantage and steel fuel tank housing has been mounted in the boot area.
From the outside, the auto is still recognisably a Cygnet with just a black mesh grille and large wheel arches to accommodate the 19-inch alloy wheels.
The V8 Cygnet looks relatively untouched from the front - apart from a mesh grille, and those new wheel arches which we'll get to later - but it hides a very different powerplant under its bonnet. In order to accommodate the significantly wider front and rear tracks, the carbon composite flared extensions were made.
It breathes out of a new twin-exhaust system with twin underfloor mufflers and 'cats, and the relatively compact layout means none of the V8's roar will be lost on the way: This vehicle promises to sound as distinctive as it looks.
In the cabin, fixed back carbon-fibre Recaro bucket seats are found, complete with four-point harnesses. A removable steering wheel makes the cut too, and sits in front of an instrument binnacle lifted from the Vantage.
