They ask millions for a toy car | Drive

It wanted to be a Lamborghini, but it became a Smart – this is how we could roughly summarize the essence of the cleverly named Smartborghini. At first glance, the car, which gives a rather abstract impression, could be rightly thought to be just an April 1st joke, but in this case the design is light years more demanding than most homemade love children. We already reported on Mazderati’s ugly result in Vezessen, which is itself a visual disaster.

A Vale Automotive is based on a 2014 but brand new Smart Fortwo, i.e. a two-seater model of the previous generation of Smarts. It was stripped of its roof and various body parts, and replaced by various pieces of a body kit that mimics the style of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4.

The Smart-Lamborghini “love child” can be seen in the pictures:

It’s true, it’s like a reduced, compressed version of a super sports car, but somehow it can be considered lifelike, and despite this compressed form, the Lamborghini styling cues are still clearly visible, for example in the case of the air intakes, the inverted V-shaped hood, the diffuser or the exhaust tips , but the orange stripes can also be classified here. In the same way, the Italian brand comes to mind for the 19-inch rims, which were modeled after the Lamborghini Callisto type wheels.

The removed roof has not been replaced, and for that matter, there would be no room for it, as the seats hang out of the significantly sculpted body as if the entire Smartborghini were nothing more than a mere playhouse runaway. It is also true that Smart has already offered a similar, roofless model in the form of the limited series Crossblade, which also features the original Lamborghini scissor-like and upward opening doors. In the case of the interior, it can also be said that it is similar to the Smart only in size, everything else is clearly a Lamborghini trait, it is enough to start from the upholstery.

Given that it was mostly used for promotional purposes in the last decade or so, it is not at all surprising that it was not used much, as evidenced by the 82 km odometer reading. It was not clearly revealed what engine drives it, but based on the other parameters alone, Smart’s 1.0-liter, three-cylinder gasoline engine seems to be the only rational choice, 71 horsepower here, 92 Nm there. One thing’s for sure: whatever’s in the engine bay is in the back, and in line with the Smart, the Smartborghini is rear-wheel drive.

Nevertheless, a handsome sum is demanded for the miniature Gallardo copy: it is eBay He is looking for his owner in Northern Ireland for 12 thousand pounds, or 5.1 million HUF at the current exchange rate. However, for that much you have to deal with the fact that it’s not currently street-legal, as it doesn’t have the standard headlights and taillights. In return, the new owner gets a car that probably has no other in the world.
