Is this the 2014 smart car

Is this the 2014 smart car, or just another rendering?

The front makes it look like a front-engine drive.

It has a air intake vent in the back. Maybe it has a small trunk in the front.

The front design sure looks believable. What makes it skeptical is how the tridion cell is part of the bottom trim. Also, if you look close you cannot find any way to open up the hood via the front mouth. Cool find though!

odd, even lug nuts, to torque. criss cross!

The tridion cell as alway come down into the rockers. Just cover with a plastic trim. Since its a brand new car, a hood release inside.

Looks like an interesting Photoshop of a 451. Look at the window support area of the driver's door (the tiny pillar that splits the window). It's exactly the same as the 451 but distorted.

I'd vote "fake" on this one.
