No, I’m Smartacus: 2002 Smart ForTwo
When the automotive press first announced a collaboration between the Mercedes-Benz and Swatch to build a car, it was funny. When the specs were released and it was advertised as a rear-engine rear-drive, and the smiles got bigger. But when it arrived and you got a 44 horsepower car for $15k starting price (before options, taxes and dealer markup) the smiles were wiped off. However, you might find that this next example could tickle a fancy or two. Find this 2002 Smart ForTwo here on eBay offered for $27,500 buy-it-now or make offer located in Schaumburg, IL. Tip from Adam.
Yes, the seller is asking twice the original MSRP for a used car — but this is not the average Smart Fortwo. Hooked up to the rear wheels is a 1300 cc 4-banger from a Suzuki Hayabusa motorcycle. With 173 horsepower it should be mad.
Pro tip of the week: If you take photos of your car for an advertisement, wear clothes. All of them. It doesn’t matter if your are a contestant on America’s Top Model or America’s Most Wanted — wear some dang clothes.

I'm not sure how Smart it is anymore, but it must be a hoot to drive. Nicely finished, and probably a good buy, if this is something you just MUST have. For the rest of us, I can think of a lot of other automotive uses for $27.5K
I thought you all would enjoy this one… so much weirdness in just one ad! And dat ass… man. – Adam (aka zedo)
I wonder what you have to do to reverse it out of a garage or a parking spot…
