Delusions of grandeur: The F1-inspired Twizy Renault Sport F1 concept

GIZMAG. MSN CARS. It looks like they made a race car out of a Smart car. I think it is pretty neat looking. Perhaps call it Smart ForF1?


'All this results in something that looks like a cross between WALL-E and a hobbit’s Formula 1 runabout.'

Perhaps a new class of race car? Perhaps a NAS-Micro-CAR?

Perhaps lead to a Smart ForFun3?

Smart ForF1! I love it! Way too cool; I'd buy one. Imagine the looks you'd get in that - and you thought people rubbernecked with our Smarts now!

I'd hate to get hit by a hail storm in that.

Speed bumps (or maybe a large pebble) would reek havoc with the lower structures in front of the rear wheels on the smart-4F1. And while on track don't even think about a minor off line maneuver resulting in a little grass excursion.

The "ground effects" make it look like a riding lawnmower.

Here's the vintage John Player Special edition . . .
