Aston Martin
The Aston Martin Cygnet is really a Toyota iQ -- a subcompact that will be sold in the U.S. later this year as the Scion iQ -- that's been fitted with Aston Martin exterior touches and an upgraded interior.

Priced at about $50,000, the Cygnet is intended, Aston Martin says, to provide something for those who want the Aston Martin experience in a more fuel efficient "city car" size.

While not everyone loves the idea, the Cygnet has brought attention to the Aston Martin brand.

"They've gotten a lot of mileage out of this one little deal they have," said Blanco.
