RE: FOR SALE: 2005 DIESEL SMART CAR
to be up front and honest, I'm not interested in buying it, but I would love to see a pic of the engine. Where do they put it?

RE: FOR SALE: 2005 DIESEL SMART CAR
greasy_beast, i sent you a pm. for the rest of you who are interested, as i know i definitely was here is a shot of the engine
[Image: 275932d1259552360-sale-2005-diesel-smart...cf1193.jpg]

the turbo is wee, the intercooler is wee, its all there, just smaller. i think i saw somewhere that the weight of the engine is around a 160lbs.
what really struck me about this car is that mercedes didn't cut out things that i would consider "non-critical", they just found a way to fit all the things in there. it has a/c, which i was surprised by. the intercooler was a bit of a shocker. it has its own portable air compressor for fixing a flat ( no spare tire ). it even has an auxilary electric heater for the cabin because the little engine takes a while to make some decent heat.
there were more surprises too. i was finding things out about this car for months.
it was pretty cool

it will be missed.

RE: FOR SALE: 2005 DIESEL SMART CAR
in the back indeed.
to my knowledge the turbo is independent of the exhaust manifold.
but i haven't really gotten into it.
i know there are some pretty good diagrams on the internet tho, just cant find em right now.

That video is very sped up. Its easy to tell by how unnaturally fast the tire smoke moves/dissipates.
