No, that's not an exercise in Photoshoppery you see at left: it's the Aston Martin "Cygnet" concept--a city car based directly on the fuel-efficient Toyota iQ (potentially known in America as the Scion iQ). Says Aston Martin Chief Executive, Dr Ulrich Bez:  "The offering of a 'Cygnet' with a DBS, DB9 or Vantage is a unique combination of opposites". Translation: "Hey, in this economy, we'll try anything."

  1. I hope they mean they're stuffing a V6 into that model and making it rwd/awd, and not simply badge engineering a Toyota econobox. If this is just to keep the engineers busy for an upcoming show--fair enough. Then the name on the back deck should be "YachtTender".
