Aston Martin Shell with Toyota Guts – Would You Buy This 50K Car?

Aston Martin Shell with Toyota Guts – Would You Buy This 50K Car?

The label says Aston Martin Cygnets, but inside the Aston Martin Cygnet it’s a Toyota iQ. In Europe Aston Martin was forced to drop its fleet average tailpipe emissions of carbin by 25% by 2013. This is something Aston Martin couldn’t of done with their current lineup so they looked to Toyota to develop their version of an ultra compact. The question is would you pay $50,000 for a 1.3 liter, 98-hp, 92-lb-ft 14; FWD, 0-60 in 11.5 sec, and a fuel economy of 50 mpg? The $50,000 does buy you quilted leather seats, hide and Alcantara dashboard accents, plush carpet, and of course the AM name badge. I say I most definitely wouldn’t consider buying this car in a millions years, but AM already has 400 out of 1500 of the 2013 Aston Martin Cygnets spoken for.To me buying this car would be the equivalent of going to a 4 star restaurant and ordering a veggie burger. Where’s the fun? What’s the point?
