The very popular Smartuki is now available in kit form. The Smartuki, as you’ll recall, is the GSX-R powered Smart car originally built by Z Cars for Peter Bee. Although the Smartuki was an incredible little beast, Z Cars didn’t have the time to turn out a kit and sold the whole project to Bill Allen. Allen, who was involved in building the original Smartuki, took the time to get everything sorted out and organized into a kit so anyone with the time and desire, plus a little cash, could now do it himself.
The Smartuki kit looks very well finished and once you close the rear hatch, no one knows what lurks inside. The engine bay is covered with sound deadening foam and closes around the engine and you still have a package shelf in the rear. You don’t need decals and racy paint, just don’t start the engine before placing your bet. Hey buddy, wanna race?
The Smartuki is available in four optional levels, from the basic level of almost totally doing it yourself along with finding most of your own parts to the highest level of drive in-drive out after writing a check. Prices range from £2000 to £9000, convert to your own currency for your cost. He will ship all over the world, too, so if you have a Smart and want to buy the kit, give Bill a ring and let him know.
