New stretch Smart car
Carbonyte Uk, the people who created the first Ferrari limousine have created the worlds first stretch Smart car. Called the Carbonyte Smaaart, ex-Mclaren man Chris Wright and MD of Carbonyte, stretched the chassis of the car by 2700mm, creating a 17-feet vehicle. Smaarts lightweight chassis even allows it to use the same 600cc engine and will reach speeds of around 80mph. The prototype has been designed as a promotional vehicle featuring a 20:1 scale fibre-glass replica soft drinks can, complete with ring-pull and can be liveried to any client's design choice and hired on a daily basis. "We think the Smaaart will make a great promotional vehicle - combining head-turning looks with the practicality of a van. We've already had incredible reactions on the road - the vehicle's almost stopped traffic, in fact the same reaction we had with the stretched Ferrari," said Chris Wright.
