Smart vs Ferrari and guess who wins
The Smart ForTwo with a 60 horsepower engine is good for for running errands, quick scoots around town but Peter Bee was unsatisified and turned to Z Cars to add a little boost to his compact commuter. Z Cars are well known for cramming powerful engines in cars like Mini etc. Z Cars managed to squezze in a 180-hp GSXR1000 motor into Peter’s car and after that this little baby does not run but fly, it zips from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds, 1/4 mile in 12.4 seconds and tops out at 132mph. What happens when you have so much power under the hood you challenge the mighty Ferrari F430 for a drag race.
