Stirling Moss gets an Aston Martin Cygnet

Sir Stirling Moss raises a few eyebrows by being the first to take delivery of an Aston Martin Cygnet city car

Sir Stirling Moss has been one of the first to take delivery of the controversial Aston Martin Cygnet. Not for himself, mind, but for his wife Susie as a surprise birthday present.  Sir Stirling and Lady Moss planned a private celebratory dinner at the Royal Automobile Club in London’s Pall Mall. The runabout was presented to his wife on arrival at the club. Sir Stirling said: ‘Since seeing a pre-production Cygnet in January I knew that it was the perfect car for Susie; a proper little piece of British luxury and perfect for our life in town.’ The Cygnet has Aston Martin Racing Green paintwork and the plate ‘SM 7’, signifying his lucky race number.
