    Smart fun

    Gave the beast a clean today as I was bored.

    Just incase nobody has seen a smart car's "engine bay" before, I took a few shots. 3 cylinders of pure muscle...







    Gave the K&N a clean - it usually wears an air box lid..



    Phone for an idea of scale






    (Think the spoiler is a bit big?)







    Isnt it a pain when your garage is full of crap and you cant fit the car in?!...






    Not a problem when youve got a smart!

    would probably be the same size seems to pretty much be a cube.

    The engine is very small yeah, quite impressive that it will move the car and 2 people at 90mph+ when you look at the size of it. Its still strange hearing the engine behind when driving
