Photoshop an "AeroSmart," win a Smart ForTwo model... and now maybe cash (Jan6/2010)



So, here's the thing: take the above image and photoshop a full aero treatment onto it. The smart is a neat car with a tiny engine, but bad aerodynamics.

Make sure to make it look like the smart, with the colours and good lines and stuff.

Best photoshop wins a cute 1:87 scale model in one of two colours (I'll post pictures of them soon).

Good luck!

Ok, here's my bid for that model. The usual bells and whistles.
  • Kammback
  • Moon disks
  • Rear wheel covers
  • Wheel Deflectors
  • Antenna delete
Should be good for a few MPG's.

Fastplastic does not have a good eye for detail look at the reflection the smart car makes on the ground, it still has the old rims on
