The Aston Martin guide to towing
Can you combine a city car with a V12 GT? We strap a trailer to a Virage and tow a Cygnet through Monaco...

Which, I am forced to admit, the Vignet does not. The Cygnet works in the urban sprawl, armoured with borrowed Aston image and clever Toyota design. The Virage is overlord of the open road, imperious, impressive, and best off not hamstrung by a twin-axle trailer bobbing around behind it, the Cygnet dragged around like a puppy lashed to a lion. There's nothing wrong with moving a brand in a new direction, expanding horizons and breaking new ground. But I have a suspicion that where a city car might just survive Aston's evolutionary cull, Top Gear's Vignet might be two axles, a towball and a trailer too far.
