Diesel Smart

Posted December 02, 2008 12:05 AM by CarDomain

Automobiles, like people, come in all shapes and sizes. We have big ones, little ones, fat ones and skinny ones, and they all have a certain appeal to them. This weekend I found myself driving around in a car that I never thought would fit someone who's 6'4" and 235 pounds. It was a Smart ForTwo diesel that was all tweaked up by Brabus, the crazy German tuner that takes mild-mannered Mercedes and turns them into super cars. When I first got a glimpse of this thing I was really was stunned at how small it is. I mean, it's SMALL. However, looks can be deceiving, very deceiving.

The Smart is basically an egg on wheels. Interior room is actually quite impressive as I fit in there with no problems. The cockpit is laid out to provide you with everything you need and nothing you don't. A big speedo with integrated fuel and temperature gauge are right in front of you, while a tachometer and clock are positioned in the middle of the dash in separate external gauge pods.

these cars are cool. It's surprising how comfy the inside is but it doesn't have everything you need there is no spare tire..not so smart I had one in the other day the guy had a blow out and none of my suppliers had a tire for it...not popular enough to carry yet ...still i think they cool and serve their purpose very well. check out what people are doing on U tube with these things
