SMART FORTWO SMART CAR SMART MERCEDES SWATCH MERCEDEs
SMART CAR While traveling in Europe, I came across a neatest little car.. the Smart car. Engineered by Mercedes and designed by Swatch, smart is a subsiderary company of DaimlerBenzChrysler. The car itself is a joy to drive through congested cities. While it does lack the scoot of a Fiat Punto or Geo Metro, it makes up for it by "i can easily squeeze through here" property. It gets looks wherever it goes,with its wild assortment of colors(my favorite name is "phat red"). Parking is a breeze. I found on the highway (while it takes 3 seconds to shift down into a lower gear) you can still pass(double and triple). I saw myself passing many Alfa's and Mercedes(most of these driver's only pass if they don't have to speed up and generally just get in your way). Most Mercedes and Audi drivers are insulted to be passed by such a cute little 3 cyl.. They say topspeed is governed at
135 km/h but i know i had mine buried at 140 still etching to go faster(maybe a tailwind?)..
0-60km/h 7 sec... I have a few pictures of various years and models. and included some links. I only hope one day they bring these to America but with a manual transmission and maybe a four cylinder. Enjoy
