Aston Martin's peculiar-looking city runabout, the , will be available in two, uber-exclusive special editions when it goes on sale later this year.

The Cygnet Launch Edition Black and Cygnet Launch Edition White will have one-off paint finishes and interior trims designed to help you put one over on the Cygnet-driving Joneses -- as if the standard car wasn't exclusive enough.

The Cygnet Black is the ebony to the White's ivory; the Mila Kunis to the White's Natalie Portman. It's finished in a one-off 'Magic Black' paint, which has a metallic finish and a specially developed deep-sea green effect. Inside, Aston Martin's fitted dark chrome accents, black Aston Martin wings and black full-grain leather seats with diamond-pattern perforations. Swanky!

The White, meanwhile, takes the milky way. It's finished in 'Snow White' paint, sports 'White Diamond' turned alloy wheels, pearl-white leather seats and more satin chrome highlights than you can shake a shammy at. Sounds a bit Essex dancefloor, to be honest.

Both Cygnet launch editions will come with a range of exclusive accessories, including a bespoke Bill Amberg five-piece luggage set -- a glove-box bag, a removable door-pocket bag, a holdall, a garment bag and a collapsible tote bag. No fanny packs are included, which is an absolute travesty if you ask us.

We've started warming to the Cygnet. It's still weird-looking, and it's still a heavily modified Toyota iQ, and it'll still cost in the region of £31,000 when production begins in April, but something tells us it'll turn more heads than its Vantage big brother.
