I like Jeeps! Can I change my reservation? South Beach here I come!
Seriously, this is only a show car. A prototype. Even if it were real, PAG wouldn't import it until they were sure of X number of smart sales. Historically, the US rarely sees many of the interesting small cars that Europe takes for granted.
I saw this after some searching last night. I'd like to know what the rear cargo space is like, and would consider this even over the fortwo. More possibilities with this...especially if they released it in a diesel... then I could fill up on biodiesel! : )
There were about 28 formores ever built. smart crushed (and I mean literally) all 26 test mules. There are only 2 formores left in the world, both of reside in a garage in MB World. (most likely, seeing how all the other priceless vehicles in the photos are MBs)
One of the two was a concept (the one with orange windows) and the other was the production version (the black one next to it). Neither made it to auto shows so very few people have seen them in person.
They axed it because during the time (2005) smart couldn't afford to continue R&D. So there those two cars sit. They're just sitting there gathering dust.
They were based on the GLK platform.
I'd buy both of them in a heartbeat. Sure they aren't small like true smarts but they appear to have a lot of that smart character.
