It seems like it’s been forever since we found out that Aston Martin was releasing the re-badged version of the Toyota iQ, which they began calling the Cygnet. The wait was longer than what we expected, but finally, Aston martin has lifted the covers off of the Cygnet at the Geneva Motor Show.

According to Aston Martin, 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."

The Aston Martin Cygnet will be powered by a 1.3 liter engine delivering a total of 97-hp with a top speed of 105 mph.

Like what we said: the Cygnet is, effectively, an iQ for the elite; and by elite, we don’t mean just any other rich person that has money to burn. Limited to only 2000 units, the Cygnet is only available to people who currently have an Aston Martin parked in their garage so even if, say, you’re a millionaire who puts cash on your dining table as a centerpiece, you’re out of luck. Unless you own an Aston Martin, you can’t get your hands on a Cygnet.

UPDATE 09/01/2010: Aston Martin has just announced that the Cygnet will become available in the USA in 2012, but potential buyers will still have to own an Aston in order to purchase the hatchback.

UPDATE 12/14/2011: Aston Martin has unveiled a new video of the small Cygnet in which they present the exquisite craftsmanship. Enjoy!

Press release after the jump.
