Chevrolet Aveo made up of 200,000 one pence pieces lasts 30 minutes in London
9 July 2008

It took just half an hour for Londoners to strip a 20-foot Chevrolet Aveo billboard of the 200,000 one pence pieces that made up the image of the company’s new city car.The installation was put up in London’s New Oxford Street to advertise the new Aveo’s £7,695 starting price. Chevrolet’s marketing manager, Les Turton, admitted that “it would have been nice for the billboard to last a little longer than 30 minutes.”

Our Verdict

Chevrolet Aveo

The Chevrolet Aveo is a well-executed, competitively priced supermini which majors on refinement rather than driver involvement

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
