    1383516300

    Fans of super-minis, take note - here's your first look at the all-new Smart Fortwo. The teensy, tiny city car skipped out in full camouflage, but lacking any shape-hiding body cladding. Immediately noticeable is just how tiny it is. It looks even smaller than the Smart Fortwo that's on the road now, but that's merely an optical illusion - it's not as ...

    Of all the auto marques on the market, Smart isn't exactly the first we'd associate with high performance. That's where Brabus comes in.

What's more, new machines are on the way from BMW (the long-rumored Isetta revival) and ...

The final decision is expected later this month, but it looks like the two-seater Smart may indeed take a shot at the U.S. market, in the guise of the redesigned 2007 model. Just in time, the ever-vigilant ...
