When we first heard of luxury automaker Aston Martin's plan to rebadge a Toyota iQ -- leaving everything under the hood intact and making only cosmetic adjustments -- we were stunned, but also slightly excited. True, the appropriately named Aston Martin Cygnet wouldn't have the power and performance of the Vantage or the DBS -- the company's full-grown "swans" -- but it would certainly be far less expensive than those $150,000+ machines, meaning that it might fall into our price range.

As it turns out, we were half-right. The Aston Martin Cygnet will run about £20,000, or $35,000, which is high, but bearable in a pinch. Unfortunately, the company has no plans to produce a U.S. edition. And even more unfortunately, only current Aston Martin owners are eligible to buy one.

Of course, 2009's been a hotbed of disappointment, so adding one more dashed dream to the list isn't a very big deal. Here's hoping for a rosier (and sportier) 2010.

  1. Has the brain drain hit Aston Martin? This sounds like an April Fools article.
