    That sounds so good. It looks like its hammering the other cars. :p

    Sounds simply fantastic. Would love it in a roadster.

    The sounds good but with it being a new engine more powerful i wonder if it will fall over around the bends. :D

    I'm actually a fan of the Smart car, I couple of guys at work have them for commuting and I was amazed but the size/comfort of the cabin for a car so small. I keep telling them to get a gsxr engine dropped in but none of them are having it. :p

    thats wicked. does anyone have an idea of how much that would actually cost to put into a roadster???

    i really like the roadster but it could do with a bit more power. i saw one with 2x 600cc turbos in it i think it was, was on topgear, had like 300bhp if i remember correctly:)

    if im wrong can someone correct me on what engines were in it

    cheers

    It was 2 smart engines welded together to create a V6 bi-turbo.

    But that noise!!

    2 standard 3 cylinder smart turbo engines joined together in a V shape to make a twin turbo V6 with 170bhp (and all from only 1400cc :) ).

    Shame that they only built a few specials and didnt put it into full scale production, it would have sold by the truck load (I'd definetly have bought one). A great car destroyed by too little power and too high a price :(.

    Car may have held up, but the impact force of it not crumpling would be transferred to your body. So not as safe as youd expect. But I certainly would be worried about safety in it tbh.
