Smart Car Monster Car’s aren’t a thing of the past. Taking the true ideal of Smart Car and implementing it to the finest with this monster (sarcasm!). This is insane and probably stupid if you ask me but none the less I’m providing pictures so that you can really enjoy this masterpiece.
It’s only a matter of time before the United States picks up the Smart Car racing phenomena. Here is a video of Smart Car Racing from where it originally was founded, Europe. I’ll be posting video’s such as these as well as some of the Smart Car racing hybrids as well.
It’s not everyday that you think about Smart Cars Rally Editions, but they have been done and here is a first look at one.
Who would have thought that the Smart Car could be the next vehicle that a performance tuner may look to when it comes to having a unique race car. Apparently the idea has all ready caught wind in other markets and if we are lucky will follow suit in the states. Smart Car Rally!!!
Here is something that you don’t usually see, a Smart Car Eleanor version. You know the Mustang that became ever so famous from the movie Gone in 6O Seconds? Well welcome to the Smart Car version.
The design study was made in clay on a regular smart toy model.
The sculpting was done directly on the body of a smart car provided by Chrysler. To quickly get volume to the sculpt we use a special mix of foam and styrofoam.
When this mix has hardened we sand it down to the shape we want and then apply plaster that will provide us with a smooth enough surface after sanding it so it’s ready for the paintjob.
After the sculpt is completed and painted it’s time to make moulds from it. The moulding process starts with figuring out where to split the mould so you can take it apart. For each seam a plane has to be in place to be able to assemble the entire mould. Once the mould is done at has to be prepared for casting which involves covering up the seams with special clay and then wax it enough so that the mould won’t get stuck to the body surface.
See the pictures to see how the Smart Car Eleanor came to be…
