In the event of my FTO not passing its test (chassis rails patched up today, re test on Monday) I’ve been researching the possibilities for its replacement and I see that the Smart roadster is an option. Five for sale for around €5,000 or €6,000.
Just drove it today.
RockAuto is becoming my best friend. :)
Apparently this is a thing.
Apparently by a shop called TNT Welding in Canada. Sadly, the rearmost wheels are not drive wheels. They claim they have that in the works, though.
This is the new smart 453, the next generation of the cat that everyone likes to hate...yet still bought enough to choke out the iQ...
By me anyway.

I work in Cherry Creek North, a pretty expensive area near downtown Denver, Colorado. I see interesting cars driving around this area all the time. Most of these photos are from Cherry Creek, but some are from other parts of the city. This is a roughly chronological photodump of what I've seen since moving here in…
That's the 2015 smart fortwo going up against the pretty heavy S-Class.
Very awesome Smart Roadster. Rear engined turbo three cylinder with rear wheel drive. Gotta love Florida for letting virtually anything be registered! My friend sent me the pic.

I saw a couple of comments discussing small car vs big car safety in the Smart ForTwo vs S-Class article and I noticed that there were a few videos from IIHS. I dug around on YouTube and found this video that had IIHS's comments on the matter. Enjoy.
Browsing through this morning's press releases I came across these images of the new Smart ForTwo and ForFour. JBL seem to have given us the best look yet of the stumpy brothers while previewing their new HiFi.
Tomorrow kicks off the first Supercar Saturdays of 2014! It will be at the Bolingbrook Promenade (Illinois) at 8 AM.
Think of Smart and no doubt you imagine an odd little two seat city car that you kind of want to push over. Want you don't think of is a turbocharged 5 door hatch that will do 137mph and 0-60 in 6.9 seconds. Sound like the work of a completely different manufacturer? It pretty much was....
How about something a little bit original?
