Video Action: Honey, I Shrunk the Aston Martin

Dear 007,
I have shrunk your Aston Martin. Regards, Toyota.

It is impossible to watch this clip and not want to show someone else! Too funny!

Really, though, the Aston Martin Cygnet (follow link for more details on the luxury hybrid) has been around for a few years now, and the jokes continue. Many auto aficionados view it is a polished-up Toyota iQ, while some claim it is the first-ever luxury commuter car. One thing is for certain–someone caught one drifting in a parking structure like a boss! Does the Aston Martin Cygnet have a decidedly badass side?

The body and drivetrain of the Cygnet are Toyota but Aston Martin provided the telltale grille, perfect paint and luxury additions to make the odd offspring. The car is so diminutive that the acceleration is surprising, hitting speeds of 80 miles per hour before you know it. The optional CTV transmission means no shifting.
