The public in Europe are somewhat wary of these latest regulations as it is feared the new cars from all manufacturers will look rather ugly in order to comply.


This will affect a car as small as a ForTwo more than most obviously.

Here are some spy shots of the new model. Hopefully it will have the same amount of character as the old model.

i saw a car on the street here in Oakland that looked a lot like that. I don't know if it was the same make though; i didn't get a good look...are there other microcars available here?

Smart is going to be coming to the USA in a year or so; there have been a number of test/publicity mules roaming around (I saw one FourTwo on I-10).

This car is insane, Zach. Will he let you drive it?

I doubt it. I'm counting down the days - mid-November.

They aren't making the Murci anymore. If you are getting it new, it's going to be an LP640 roadster. Yes?

Would like to see it with the hummers! That would be a good photo

Correct, the Murcielago LP640 roadster, will do as soon as it comes in
