    C: Try the search function (never know what it'll turn up)

    D: Browse the Multimedia category

    HTH :grin:
  3. :google:
  4. E. All it means is you have a car that goes faster in a straight line but still can't corner. The only half-decent Smart car is the Brabus V6 Roadster.
  5. jd, wasn't that a one off concept?... or am i thinking of the dual engined smart roadster?
  6. The Brabus is the twin-engined one - the V6 is made by grafting two standard 3-cylinder Smart engines together. Wasn't exactly a one-off though production was pretty limited, think less than a dozen cars mainly due to the fact that they were extremely expensive. Still if you had the money I'm sure Brabus would make another one for you.
  7. can i borrow some money? :LOL: :LOL:
  8. You're gonna have to borrow a lot - think the Brabus was worth around A$800,000 :shock:. I could think of plenty of other cars I'd rather own that cost a lot less than that (new Lotus Elan would be nice [-o<).
  9. Save yourself some money and buy Aussie made, whan in 'production'

    the Joss supercar should sell for around the $200,00 mark
