I mentioned before that I thought was very strange with Aston Martin decided to produce the Cygnet city car. The little vehicle did nothing for the companies sporting and exotic image. Considering the car was discontinued shortly after enter production, a lot of people apparently felt the same way.

The vehicle sold in the UK for 32,000 pounds. Reports have surfaced that indicate Aston Martin sold fewer than 150 units. The automaker had hoped to sell 4000 copies per year. Clearly Aston Martin didn't come close.

Aston Martin continues to struggle as an automaker as economic woes around the world put a damper on the purchasing of exotic sports cars. Aston Martin reported a loss of 24.6 million pounds towards year that ended in December of 2012.
