Evil Aygo

Toyota puts its little city car on nandrolone, sends it to Halfords

Toyota Aygo Crazy

This is the Toyota Aygo Crazy. This is not, contrary to appearance, the work of an over-ambitious Dagenham teenager with ready access to the Halfords catalogue and a glue gun. No, this is an official Toyota concept.

Toyota describes the Aygo Crazy as 'a unique machine that has been developed from the start to deliver no-holds-barred maximum driving pleasure'.

It is, in other words, no idle bodykit: this pumped up Aygo is fitted with a 1.8-litre VVTi petrol engine developing 197bhp - that's Civic Type R power in something approximately the size of a shoe.

You'll have spotted the massive carbon fibre rear wing and over-inflated arches sitting over 17-inch alloys, and the Aygo is similarly unsubtle on the inside: full roll cage, four-point safety harnesses... oh, and a complete lack of any driver aids. Aygo sideways.

Toyota says that the Aygo Crazy is a one-off model, and that there are no plans to put it into production. Is it wrong that we really want them to build it?

Now share it...
