I'd have loved to have seen the AM treatment on a C1/Aygo/107....

I've seen the little AM IQ on the showroom forecourt here in Newport Pagnell but never taken any real notice of it...

Is this a mini version of a Bugatti in the footsteps of Aston Martin, or just a 92 Honda Civic with non matching wheels :?: !

The article also pointed to a couple of other examples
Dressing up budget hatchbacks to appear to be something more than they are seems to be all the rage these days. Toyota iQ becomes Aston Martin Cygnet. Mini Cooper becomes the Rolls-Royce-inspired Goodwood edition. Even the Fiat 500 has had its Tributo Ferrari.

The Mini Goodwood Edition

And the Abarth Tributo Ferrari

Its been a while so, following on from the spare wheel tangent on the "Classics for under £10,000" thread can you identify this nice pair of innovative spare wheel cars

Like Malcolm I go for a Bristol for the bottom left, the other two look like they may be Allard's.

Yes well done Malcolm and Richard, the under the wing spare wheel is a Bristol, according to the photo description a 1967 Bristol 410.

They used this feature on models from the 50's up to the early 2000's

This Bristol Blenheim 3g was one of the last
