The all new luxary Aston Martin Cygnet

  1. i think if companies like aston martin need to make a fuel efficient car to meet standards they shouldnt make a practical box car, it should be just a super small lightweight exotic type
  2. wtf, why do you stupid idiots think this is cool. if they build this i will bite my own dick off in a fit of rage
  3. Actually I disagree. Most buyers will probably be middle class who are desperate to say "I have an Aston", showing off their (fictional) wealth.

    From a business point of view, it should bring profits.
  4. WOW LIVE LUXARY!!! <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/amazed.gif"></A>
  5. the "I have an Aston" thing is completely countered by the fact that its a Toyota iQ with a fancy badge.

    At a dinner part:
    "So what car do you drive?"
    "I have an Aston Martin"
    "Oh, the little Toyota one?"
    *everyone laughs*
  6. I seem to be agreeing with you a fair bit recently

    If I had a couple of astons I couldn't think of anything cooler to commute around London in than this thing

    haha actually I just thought... Aston Martin are #$%#ING GENIUSES hahah! Get this...

    London.. TEEMING with aston martins. Central London = £8 per day to drive your car into the centre, unless your car is a hybrid or has v low emissions. currently all aston martin owners will pay £8 a day to drive into the city. if Aston can make this thing pump out less than 120g CO2/km then it will be congestion charge exempt, so all the city boys will still be able to swan about in an aston martin, but not pay for having to get into the centre of london every day, along with all of the other inflated costs that come with the whole "aston martin experience" (fuel, insurance, etc)

    it's a #$%#ing amazing idea. Aston are going to make so much money on this thing
  7. I'm actually laughing at the genius of this idea! Aston Martin are so fkin awesome
  8. They will already have an Aston. They're only going to be available to current Aston owners.

    It WILL mean profits, but not for the reason you've brought up.
  9. I had no idea it was going to be available only for Aston owners. Imo the iQ is a very good car, especially with the CVT gearbox. But paying an extra 10k euros to have a riced iQ with AM badges sounds stupid to me
  10. it says that in the first post <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>

    It's stupid for sure, but I'm sure Aston will give it an obscenely opulent interior for such a small car, to help justify the huge price, and the potential owners of one would all be pretty wealthy anyway so they won't have as much of a problem with spending £20k on it than an average joe like you or I would.

    Although that being said, if they were available to everyone and I had £20k I'd buy the #$%# out of it! haha
  11. If it looked like a Fiat 500, it'd be great! But it looks more like a Smart... which it isn't!
  12. Not a fan.

    I don't really see how it would be better as a commuter car than a proper Aston Martin given how much it'll cost.
  13. Running costs are much lower, it's congestion charge exempt, it's much easier to find a parking space, it's easier to manoeuvre in the city and it won't be such an instant key magnet to any dickhead who feels jealous.
  14. i'd key that POS
  15. I #$%#ing want one.

  16. Only complete and total wankers key cars.
  17. This
  18. Except that you can't buy it if you don't already own an Aston Martin, and which middle class person has an Aston Martin.
  19. A customer i used to have at my old job was middle class, maybe even a bit working class in the way he spoke, he just had a good business doing soil testing for construction companies and did a bit of property developing on the side. He drove a v8 vantage 4.3
  20. some of the surmises reached after reading this article... :s
  21. w t fffffff
