    These have been around for a long time. When you go to buy your Aston Martin, I guess they're hoping you'll get one of these for the wife to go shopping in at the same time.

    Yes and no. The concept came out some time ago, but this particular model is a one off, built by the Q Department, for a customer and it is fitted with a 4.7L V8!!

    Surprised there's room for a 4.7L V8 in that thing! Yes, the originals were just a normal Toyota IQ underneath I think.

    The engine, transmission, suspension, brakes and wheels came from the Aston Martin Vantage S ;)

    Chassis was reinforced to hold the newfound power but was from the original Toyota iQ (intelligent quotient / individuality & quality) :thumbsup:

    British monster of a pocket rocket ::psy::

    Even so, I don't think I'd feel safe driving it.

    It would certainly be an 'interesting' drive!
