Last week’s LA Auto show saw the debut of Doking’s electric “luxury” citycar, which looked to combine urban maneuverability and premium materials on a level two steps above what’s been offered by premium compacts from Mercedes, Mini, and Lancia in the past. No matter how “green” or “premium” a car might be, however, there are buyers out there who still feel there’s a negative around owning a small car – especially in some wealthier circles. What are green-minded, image-conscious young
Emiratis people to do?
The answer, apparently, is to send one of Scion’s iQ minis over to Aston Martin to get the full Cygnet treatment, then – as if to underscore that its owner can afford a bigger car, but doesn’t want a bigger car – have the whole thing covered in gold.
I remember when Aston Martin built nice cars, don’t you?
Here’s a few more pictures of the thing, in case you feel particularly penitent and want to suffer. Enjoy … or something.
