GAYDON, England — The tiny Aston Martin Cygnet has been discontinued, Aston Martin confirmed for Edmunds on Tuesday.

"Cygnet production is coming to an end and we will concentrate on production of our core sports car range," wrote Matthew Clarke, an Aston Martin spokesman, in response to a query.

The tiny Cygnet city car was aimed at European buyers and was priced at the U.S. equivalent of $50,203.

The Cygnet, which is named after a young swan, was an odd duck in an Aston Martin lineup populated by cars that were often showcased in James Bond movies. The Cygnet features Toyota iQ underpinnings and a 97-horsepower 1.3-liter inline four-cylinder engine linked to either a six-speed manual transmission or an optional continuously variable transmission. It has a top speed of 106 mph.

Aston Martin describes the two-door Cygnet as "a luxury commuter car tailor-fit for the city."

Edmunds says: Aston Martin gets out of the city-car business, which was a major detour from its core lineup.
