It’s not a Micro-Machine. It’s not a Golf Cart w/ a grill. It’s a Smart Car, with a Body Kit, and it's kinda amazing. Smart car body kits are a clever way to make those eco-friendly cars (that we all love) look just a bit cooler. The upside of smart cars has always been obvious, but the drawbacks lurk right beneath the surface. The largest drag on the potential growth of smart cars is their look. Not all of these are real, obviously - Forced perspective, a little photoshop cropping, a motion blur, etc. The point to me is that this is an idea with demand, that could be done, and should be done. A few killer body kits could really help push the eco-car cause.
Those are just a couple samples - Audi’s, Lambos, Ferraris, Jags, Corvettes, Porches... and I'll keep this updated, hopefully w/ some manufacturers soon. I did run across a couple smart car kits at SmartSadness.com, but they don't seem to be production ready yet.
If you happen to run across any other impressive smart car kit pictures online, let me know in the comments. I’ll keep a collection going because these are pretty slick looking and someone w/ fibreglass or carbon-fiber skills could make an absolute killing right now.
