We have someone that already posted a nice image of a 'smart' with a boattail.
I'll see what I can come up with, but I'm giving the credit to the original poster.


Can I section the car ? It looks cartoonish stock.

I'm in!

I could think of NOTHING more important to do than photoshopping an aero smart !

Of course it will be better with the aero-cargo carrier/semi boat tail like the one someone made in the Toyota iQ thread

I vote for Metros idea.
. These cars really start to look like one of those Tango cars.

This is how the car could look with MAJOR surgery. It would be really impractical since only short people could ride in it ( major chopping and sectioning, not to mention reshaping the entire greenhouse.)

  • Top chopped to teardrop matching shape
  • Mirror deletes

Here's my attempt.

Moon Discs
Obscured Windscreen Wiper
Rear Air Vent Block
Rear Wheel Cover
Front Air Dam
Spoiler Delete
Rear Wiper Delete
Retractable Fabric Boattail (Cross-Section Shown)
Door Handle Delete



Please excuse my lack of skill when using clonestamp, I blame paint.net.
