Smart unveils monster truck

2006-09-18 07:48

Size does matter!

The Forfun2 was created by Greek rally champion Stefan Attart.

This eye-catching Smart combines the body shell of the Fortwo with the underpinnings of parent company Mercedes-Benz's Unimog 406.

The dimensions also turn heads: tyres on 26 inch rims with a diameter of 1 400 mm.

Not to mention ground clearance of 650 mm and an unbelievable total height of 3.7 metres.

Power comes from an inline six-cylinder diesel engine, which kicks out 62kW.

To optimise the vehicle for off-road driving, in addition to special shock Absorbers, Stefan Attart fitted manually controlled air suspension.

This enables the driver to specifically influence individual springs - a particular advantage on extreme downhill gradients.
