Vehicle Description

...in excess of 200 horsepower.


That's not a man's car, that's not even an old granny's car, it's a small lawn mower engine on big wheels

Smart Car Batmobile

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

George Barris, the custom car designer who created the Batmobile and other famous Hollywood cars, recently turned his attention to the Smart Car. The result is Batsmart, a one-of-a-kind Smart Car with red pinstriping, a jet blast nozzle, bat wings and a $39,500 price tag.

Re: If you think the car describes the man.....

By the way, if any of you would like to make me a nice little early Christmas present...my absolute dream car is an early 80's white Cadillac Coupe Deville with white interior on white rims....they go for roughly 15k depending on what options etc. are on. Thanks in advance and hope hearing from you soon.

Kind Rregards,
