That's not a Smart Yaris - that's just b/c the Yaris can go so damn fast at it's top speed that as it approaches the speed of light, the refraction angle changes, and it appears shorter than it's actually supposed to be.

I'd love to have the camera that took an action photo at that speed.

A little, but in real life when you see them driving side by side the difference is quite striking.

I can definitely tell the difference off the bat, but my guess is that it's probably based off the same platform.

It has many innovations, including hybrid engine, neutral engine cutoff, "micro-technology," solar panel to operate auxiliaries, etc., according to my dealer, if and when it comes to the States. I hope it does!!!

Cool

What you really want is an Angel Investor. If you get an eccentric/generous millionaire to buy you a Prius, he/she is going to want your friendship/companionship. And just so you know, eccentric/generous millionaires don't sleep. At least not nearly as much normal people .

kitaimdao, that's not a Prius.
