Smart Fortwo as stunt car

Andrew Hopkins

Bernie Ecclestone wouldn't approve, though from a size perspective, the Smart Fortwo looks tailor-made for him. However, what some Fortwo owners get up to in their leisure time is quite at odds with the philosophy of the F1 supremo: wild drifts, burning rubber and 'donuts' all over the place. Even a 'frontendo'.

Typical reactions will be "What's the point?" or "Run that past me again..."

The video clip posted below is the visual proof. A Smart Fortwo equipped with a Suzuki Hayabusa motorbike engine and with modified brakes performs these very stunts in front of a large crowd to the strains of a sweetly buzzing engine.
