The Car in front is a Toyota….er Aston?

Aston Martin have launched their Cygnet based on the Toyota IQ. Currently it has a six month waiting list and this suggests very positive feedback from the target market. Aston say many existing Aston drivers have a FIAT 500, MINI or similar small run-a-bout so will be drawn to this new product. Aston has had to produce this car to meet strict EU CO2 average emissions. Ferrari and Lamborghini have parent companies in FIAT and Audi that bring down theirs. Many would say that if this is what it takes to allow for the continuation of the supercar brand then so be it. In any event it currently looks like it will be a commercial success.
