Gear heads may finally accept the concept of a micro city car when the Carlsson 2012 Smart ForTwo is released later this year. In addition to remodelling the exterior, which makes the ForTwo more aerodynamic, Carlsson has modified the engine to make it faster. The Carlsson 2012 Smart ForTwo exchanges its old body for a sleeker and more lightweight one. Highlights include a set of 17-inch alloy wheels and a crisp grey and white finish. The engine of the ForTwo has been modified with an air intake and an upgraded ECU.
Although the Smart's performance figures, at 112hp and 117 lb-ft of torque, are still paltry in comparison to almost any other car, it's still better than what the ForTwo was pushing before. Unfortunately, there is no word yet on the Carlsson 2012 Smart ForTwo's pricing or release date.
