After all of the articles we’ve had on the Smartuki over the last couple of years, many of you have asked about building your own. If you’re up in Canada or over in Europe, the Smart Car has been available for a long time and Bill Allen can set you up with a kit to create your own little screamer but if you live in the U.S., the Smart Car has been promised for ages but except for a few that made their way here by various means, it hasn’t been readily available from a dealer.
Well, your wait is almost over. It looks like the Smart will be coming the first quarter of next year and if you want to have one of the first Smart ForTwo minicars so you can
hack it up modify it and install some real power, you can reserve one now for $99.
The $99 is refundable and doesn’t lock a potential buyer into a particular color or trim level, … They can opt to make changes to their order and the $99 reservation fee will be factored into the total sum for the car.
Excluding destination fees, tax and costs of added options, the entry-level Smart ForTwo Pure starts under $12,000, the ForTwo Passion coupe is less than $14,000 and the ForTwo Passion Cabriolet is priced under $17,000.
Check on the price of a kit for all of the GSX-R mounting bits and add in the price of the car and you’re all set. It goes without saying, your warranty will be null and void but the car will be a heck a lot more fun to drive.
