the limited edition toyota ‘aygo manga’ styled comic by artist sonia leong, follows the heroine and her aygo car as they save the city from a rampaging dinosaur. the adventure is adapted into an animated film to pay homage to the influences of the automotive company’s design team and most notably their chief designer, david terai – a self-confessed devotee of the classic astro boy character.
