I worked at a Mercedes benz dealership a couple years ago and I can tell ya those smart cars are shit, but in the winter when there is snow on the ground they are fun as hell, you can pin the pedal to the floor and it'll just spin and drift easy and controllable..it's quite fun, It would be awesome if they did the same on pavement as in the video

Have had some of those saved in my youtube favorites for a while. Also look under Diablo Smart car or the like. Looks like fun.

Advice when driving cage - Don't race the smart car that has a Yoshi can protruding from under the bumper

everytime i see a smart car i always think of how effed the people inside it would be if they ever got in a crash with like the average size truck of america.... my 2500hd would demolish one.... @ 6.6k lbs... i would not want to see the end result of that.

regardless that would be fun as hell to mess round in... but tbh id rather have an original mini cooper with a busa in it. or a v8

They are pretty well designed in order to keep the passengers safe……That is unless you cut off an American in his ’93 Toyota 4x4 on the M25 Orbital in London. Don’t ask…..
