Aston Martin is reportedly considering a Cygnet with a V12 engine. It would likely be built to order.
According to Autocar magazine Aston Martin is considering a Cygnet with a V12 engine.
Autocar sources suggest the company has already completed a feasibility study and has determined that the 6.0-liter V12 that outputs 510 bhp (380 kW) and 457 lb-ft (620 Nm) of torque will fit in the engine bay without major modifications. However, the car would still have to be upgraded to handle the additional weight and power of the V12.
Smelling a rat, the fun-loving gents at Jalopnik.com followed up with a call to Aston Martin's Matthew Clarke who responded, "Looks like they were reheating a Jalopnik story to me." Surely the Jalops will take that as a compliment, but Clarke adds that nothing has been built as of yet.
That's neither an admission or denial but since the idea is so preposterous Jalopnik's Matt Hardigree flat out doesn't believe it. Neither do we!
