Stirling Moss bags an Aston Martin Cygnet for ‘er indoorsTue, 12 Jul 2011
Sir Stirling & Lady Moss with Susie's new Aston Martin Cygnet
It’s much easier to have a good life when you’ve got the support of an exceptional other half. Just ask Sir Stirling Moss, who’s just surprised ‘er indoors – Susie, Lady Moss – with an Aston Martin Cygnet for her birthday.
The planning for the surprise gift from Motorsport’s greatest living icon to the love of his life took six months of planning between Sir Stirling, Aston Martin and the RAC Club.
The RAC Club because it was to Pall Mall that Sir Stirling was taking Lady Moss for a private, celebratory dinner for Susie’s birthday.
Waiting in the RAC Club’s Rotunda was an Aston Martin Cygnet, resplendent in British Racing Green (of course) complete with an elegant black leather interior with coarse silver stitching. All very Stirling.
The Cygnet sports one of Sir Stirling’s personalised number – SM 7 – which we last saw on his 3-wheel scooter, but he obviously feels the Cygnet worthy of the number, unlike Lady Susie’s last car – a SMART.
Sir Stirling, the old softie, said:
My greatest partner in everything that I do, Susie is an amazing person and frankly the best wife a man could have. 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.
And the man from Aston Marin smiled.
