No road? No problem for this Smart Car!

The sky is the limit when it comes to the contraptions people will come up with in their garage and this off-road Smart Car is a prime example. After riding in a friends Turbo Diesel Smart Car, Ukrainian Gerogiy Kosilov got the idea for adapting one for the off-road. Kosilov stripped the car of anything that wasn’t absolutely necessary and added parts from other Volkswagen, Honda and Mitsubishi vehicles. At 13 inches, Kosilov more than doubled the ground clearance and as it turns out, the Smart Car makes a pretty descent off-road vehicle.
