Smart ForTwo modified for the 2013 Dakar Rally [video]

Team couldn't raise enough money to compete

The Smart ForTwo isn't known for high-performance, but that hasn't stopped Team Feber from trying to enter the 2013 Dakar Rally with one.

Set to tackle the grueling 8,000 km (4,970 mile) course, the specially modified ForTwo has been equipped with a modified body, an off-road suspension and a four-wheel drive system.

Unfortunately, Team Feber wasn't able to raise enough money to support their Dakar adventure. According to driver Jose Luis Alvarez Alarcón "We have no choice, we love to dream ... we like movies with happy endings" but even though we cannot compete in Dakar this year, "the movie was pretty, very pretty ...."

I suspect they've put the body from a Smart on top of an ATV as it goes like one, especially through puddles and therefore should be in that category.
