Stop it you guys! The next thing you're going to say is that professional wrestling isn't real.

Too bad the joint venture couldn't have been with Ford.... cross between a Fiesta and a smart.... Nah, that would smell bad. Hmmm, what's that burning smell?

[QUOTE=MB DNA;559340]WITH Daimler support, cold weather testing of two MULEs (fortwo & forfour?)


I hope as has been discussed ad infinitum on here that the mules outer bodies have little relevance to the final product. These cars look really large.
I would like to see the forfour appear to just be a stretched version of the fortwo which would mean rear drive... We know that is supposed to be, not another colt in smart clothing that ended up with a Benz price.

There's the old phrase..."beating an old mule".
When (?) are the new smarts going to be in the States? Late next year? And the current 451 is stopping production when? Isn't there going to be a huge gap in time between the lines? And where are all the wonderful things smart, DVI , now MBUSA, promised? NOT FEELING THE LOVE!!! (sarcasm font)

Who promised what? The word from Daimler smart has been the 453 will be revealed at the September Frankfurt auto show; there may be some "leaked" photos prior to that but don't expect to see much official before then.
