Default Smart Car meets My bonneville

Dad'* friend came over and I had to see the length difference. The 2000+ bodies are just over the length of 2 smart cars

If by smart, you mean a good way to die instantaneously in a car wreck... yes. Those things have no room to crumple without taking the occupants with it. That said, I've never seen one on a road.

Actually,

Quote:
Smart vehicles use a very small front crumple zone. The main structure of the car is a stiff structure called a Tridion, which is designed to activate the crumple zones (if any) of a colliding vehicle. This design creates a very strong safety cell around the passengers. However, it also subjects them to higher forces during an accident than in a conventional car.
They are pretty safe for their size.

So what is the ratio of crank turns to wheel turns

and what happens if you need to tow a boat?
