    They are rediculously priced for what you get...and mpg isnt as good as a hybrid...at least not the older ones. I think new ones get close to 60mpg.

    But if you could get one with high milage on the cheap and put a Hayabusa engine it in youd have a car that eats supercars for lunch.

    They seem pretty agile in other videos.

    Yeah...and you can beat a 200k supercar with it.

    And youd make that 20k back in no time betting corvette owners that you could beat them in a race.:tongueout:

    Imagine if you could talk someone into racing for pink slips?

    Problem is, you get hit by a shopping cart, while in a smart car, you die.

    Obviously, that car is highly modified, but I really don't see why anyone would want one of those things. I see a few, it's hilarious trying to see some fool merge on the highway in those things.

    Just an aside:

    A Diablo is Lamborghini.

    The Ferrari is an F430. :tongueout:


    *** edited to add ***
    The 430 won SCCA's T1 class last year, against Vipers and LS3 c6 Corvettes, and c5 z06's. To "equalize" this, they added 500 lbs ballast to the 430's, and a restrictor. The 430 still won this year.

    These cars do not have the torque of the Viper or Corvette. Dynoed, they do not touch 400hp.

    If you're going to put a Hayabusa motor in a golf cart. I'd put it in an Ariel Atom or a Superlite Nemesis before I ever touched a Smart car.

    Though I would like to see one of these turbo 'Busa Smart cars against the new Noble M600.

    GET THE JAWS OF LIFE!!!

    Smart cars are not that smart.

    You can get better gas mileage, and a slightly bigger car for much cheaper.

    Where is the picture of Okie in the Smart Car?

    You can strap a SRB to a lawnmower and beat a Ferrari. The question is... why?

    So a highly modified SmartCar beats someone who can't drive a Ferrari, and it makes you want one?
