I was riding into work this morning and happened to pass a Starbucks parking lot with a Smart Car parked in it. I stopped to take a quick peek and snapped a couple of pictures. It looks like a cute and practical little car for a commuter or couple. The best demonstration was when the guy took the car and parked it perpendicular to the curb on the side of the road, try that with a normal car. If you haven't already seen the video, there is a pretty amazing smart car crash test video posted on You-Tube. Talking with they guy, they are going to be distributed through Mercedes Benz dealers in the US and will be priced at between $14k and $17k. My bike still gets better gas mileage, but it is still a pretty cool little car.
