Wouldn't take much to make Smart AMG.
Years ago in Europe I owned a car that was making 0-100 kph i less than 7 seconds and 230 kph with 110 HP. The VW Scirocco was only 800 kg.
Probably would take Smart about 60 HP to get that kind of performance?
I've seen few Smarts registered in US in the past. One as a toad on golf-cart trailer behind motorhome got my attention. Is there a small company importing them here?
Would by a Smart for my wife. She scratched the ML on garage door.

I think nothing beats Paris popularity with Smarts.
They can use bicycles spots for parking.
