When I hear the name Aston Martin, I definitely think of a luxurious and super sporty car, and I would always remember it portrayed in that exact way in the numerous 007 movies, where James Bond smoothly drives off with a beautiful Bond girl. Cygnet is definitely a one of a kind vehicle that will totally surprise many of us.  For a taste of amazement, it can go up to 62.8MPG with its spectacular fuel efficient 1.3 Liter Dual VVT-I Engine; however, what makes this incredibly stunning is it only takes 11.6 seconds to go from 0 to 60 MPH.  What makes this dream of a car just a drool worthy dream?  Unfortunately, it is still only available in Europe.  Please feel free to begin drooling…
