Click for a hi-res gallery of the Koenigseder Smart ForTwo

"Wide-body" is a relative term. An SUV or a supercar decked out with a wide-body kit? Pimpin'. But a smart ForTwo? Well, it's wider, sure.

Koenigseder is known for modifying big SUVs, but with this kit it's gone decidedly smaller. The Austrian tuning house's package for the diminutive Smart car widens the body by over an inch, which we're not sure is so Smart for a vehicle designed to park sideways in tight spots. The kit also includes 17" rims, which look positively monstrous on such a tiny car, plus Eibach springs, an aero kit, some subtle floral decals and even environmentally-friendly floor mats. Check the action out in the gallery by clicking the thumbnails below.

      not too keen on the front, but the side looks pretty good. and can that 3 banger handle 17s?
      • 6 Years Ago
      I think the 17s fit in there nicely. That's part of being tuned, and only makes the Smart that much more non-laughable to the younger crowd.

      An excercise in pointlessness: putting an upgraded suspension and widebody kit on one of the slowest cars money can buy.

      How do things like this happen?
        • 6 Years Ago
        Someone decided they'd get creative with the term "Wide Body" .. it's not that relative, you know. Wheel flares don't make a smart wide.

      Whew, I read Koenigsegg at first, and was speechless.

      Thankfully those Swedes are sticking to ridiculous loud shouty behemoths.
