    those are going for a little bit more than $32k
    but with the gas money you will save with the Cygnet, you can save up the extra $1,868,000.00 in no time :)

    Someone at aston took a shit in the dumpster, and some jack ass pulled it out and took pictures of it.

    Fail car. Its god damn hideous, and a heavy blow to the aston namesake. I hope this is a joke..

    Why would you include an interface on a car that only works with one brand? How about just put a mini-USB plug and a flash drive capable receiver, so that any media player works?

    Ah well, anyone dumb enough to pay luxury prices for an economy car probably owns an iPod.

    2 reasons

    1) bond will get sponsors from apple in the next movie. remember casino royale? it was a 2 hour commercial for samsung and ford.

    2) because now bond can use his iphone to drive the car from a remote location or something. he will just pre-link it.

    I'm sure Apple will have a "James Bond App" that lets you drive your car via iPhone...

    i think you're right about the quirkiness of iphone users. i'm sure they all own smart cars and would love an aston martIn for $30k.

    Apparently they didn't design it. It's just a rebadged Toyota...

    How come concepts never have door handles? I don't know about you, but if I were to conceive of a car, I'd want opening the door to be high on my list of priorities.
