With the introduction of the diminutive smart fortwos, Windy City Smart Car is making sure people know the car is safe (just look at the photo above, taken from their website). I did not know before now that the steering column in a smart electronically retracts telescopically upon impact to minimize injuries.
Windy City Smart Car's prices start at $26,850 for the coupe/ $29,800 for the cabriolet. Click here for all the specifications.
