SMART Car photos

Pics of our 2006 Mercedes Benz built SMART Cars (Coupe and Cabriolet) 

These photos reflect some of the activies around our Generation ONE smart Cars (model 450). This car is unlike the smart cars currently being sold in the United States.  It has a Mercedes Benz, 3 Cylinder, TurboCharged Engine, 6-Speed Constant Velosity Transmission which can be shifted manually or Automatically, as selected by the driver on the transmission lever.  It is only 98 inches long (as opposed to the current Gen two, Model 451, 106").  This length provides for loading it across the bed of our Medium-Duty Isuzu FRR truck while pulling our 5th Wheel Trailer (US DOT width limitation on the highways is 102").
