Awesome! just simply too good... those cars look really good. The Alloys on the Mugen S2k, GT700 and the 5-series look really good.

OMG, i am in love with the 5 series more than ever before.

Steeroid: I imagine doing 140km/h in the Smart as the closest thing to suicide. I am surprised it even went that fast considering it doesn't even have a proper gearbox. But 70+bhp on it seems plenty.

1. It isnt the closest thing to suicide - I have done it quite a few times and I'm still alive enough to be writing this

2. It doesnt even have a proper gearbox????? - If a 6-speed (7, if you count reverse) tiptronic gearbox that allows you to use manual or auto mode depending on your mood is not a proper gearbox, I wonder what is!!!! The only other piece of machinery I own that has 6 forward gears is my RD350.

I've wiped out many indulgent smiles at traffic light GPs, because this thing can go much faster than most people would expect....70 plus bhp on a car thats much lighter than the Maruti is quite a packet.

Cheers

Steeroid, where are you located? Excuse my ignorance about the gearbox. I thought it was a 3 speed tiptronic with no auto option. Even though u seem happy with the car, i still can't find any reason that would atrract me to the smart apart from the power to weight ratio.

1. Wasnt trying to sell you one, mate !

2. Tiptronic gearboxes usually come with manual & auto mode. Some come with the F1-ishtyle paddle shift, but I had my fill of that with the Alfa 156. Stickshift, anyday!

3. I live in Dubai
