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...

A brief pause inside Monaco harbour to breathe deeply, complete the panic cycle, and get the blood back into my face, and the reason I've inadvertently ended up assaulting local law enforcement is laid out before me in all its expensively moored, multi-million-pound glory. Aston Martin described the Cygnet city car as a ‘tender'... like the little boats that parasite the sides of ocean-going vessels too big for harbour. So, to continue the analogy, you have a rational and tiny Cygnet for the city/harbour, and a ‘proper' (read massively engined) Aston for the country/ocean.
