Who’d of thought a topic with Cygnet in the title has a response like that.

It is pretty awesome though

The little I've seen, it's the 4.7 N/A lump in S trim.

I'd often wondered if that kind of transplant was possible. Perhaps a future project once I've finished the Corvette build. If I can find a donor IQ, and an AM29 engine, I could get a tube chassis put together and have an angry roller skate of a daily driver... it's food for thought biggrin

Normally with these things, the firewall moves behind the bottom of the windscreen and the rear seat area becomes the front seats. Where there's a will, there's a way...

That's pretty much how the article reads. wink

Would love to know how eye wateringly expensive it was, even if you started with 'used' cars, the cheapest Cygnet is £30k and a rough donor Vantage is going to be £25k scratchchin

Sorry life's just to short to worry about those sort of conversions!

Nice in-car footage on TopGear website from Goodwood FoS:

It has a huge "want!" factor and makes people smile for sure smile
