The Smartest Car in the Room

Image credit: 

While I find Smart Cars pretty adorable (I just want to pinch their little rear view mirrors!), apparently the nerdy vehicles are eager to shed their Pointdexter reputations. And it seems like the makeovers are working, sort of. I'm not sure why suped-up Smart Cars are so funny to me (TheCellar posted quite a few images last week), but I especially love this Smorvette convertible, and this big-tired Smaudi-- which looks like it could 4-wheel over any pebble in it's path. If you're itching to see more, TheCellar's got everything from tiny Porsches, to little Lamborghinis. Be sure to check them out here.

I feel so bad that I'm adding one last (and real!) modified Smart Car that Treehugger posted about a while ago. While fuel efficiency might not be a bragging point, this one definitely towers above the rest.
