Well ... quite a few questions about this car. This is a Smart Roadster that was available in Europe from 2004 until 2006 when Smart realised they couldn't afford to make it anymore. It has a 698cc turbo charged engine and this model, the Brabus, is tuned to 101BHP which gives a 0-60mph in 9 seconds and top speed of about 120mph ... which considering the size and weight means a whole lot of fun! It is a rear/mid engined car with incredible dynamics.
Here is a link to more information about it:
