Toyota Aygo Crazy set for Goodwood debut

Published: 02 July 2008 Updated: 26 January 2015

Toyota will bring its ‘shopping supercar’ – the Aygo Crazy – to the 2008 Goodwood Festival of Speed, which kicks off next week. It’s a one-off, attention-grabbing supermini with a mid-engined layout like the Renault Clio V6. 

The racing Aygo uses a 200bhp turbocharged version of Toyota’s 1.8 VVT-i engine from the Celica and MR2 – making it somewhat more powerful than the regular Aygo’s 68bhp.

A 200bhp Aygo? How fast is this thing?

Don’t forget, we’re dealing in the world of fantasy here (the Aygo Crazy is just that – a madcap, one-off concept), but Toyota claims it will hurtle to 62mph in just 5.8sec, although top speed is pegged back to a rather more mundane 127mph.

It will be driven up Lord March’s driveway by Scot Peter Dumbreck, who drives a 500bhp Lexus in the Japanese SuperGT series. And if you’re not going to Goodwood, you can see the mental mini at the London motor show from 22 July 2008.
