id love a smart roadster, good on fuel, sporty and modern looking.
Sporty?! Give over! My old 214 had more sportiness to it!

0-60 in 10ish seconds. Jesus, might as well walk!
They're pig ugly too. But that seems to be a Smart speciality.

But seeing as dee* owned a TF, I doubt shes bothered by the fact they don't make roadsters anymore and Smart aren't far from "doing a Rover".

i like the smart roadster,but they appear to have meddled too much with a silly auto gearbox etc.

now if the gang gordon murry is involved in get it right it will be a manual,lighter, with less silly tyres and i`d like a diesel that i can run on veg ta very much.

Forget that R6 would be better
