Custom Fenders were fabricated by the Artisans of Body Works On Grand also located in Chicago.
Wheels imported from Germany directly from manufacturer Lorinser.  
 Project took over 1 1/2 years to complete. Everyone involved took great pride on working on                 SMARTACUS.  Many small details that when all added together really transforms the look of SMARTACUS.  Sub frame was powder coated to match the color of the cars panels. of course the gauges replaced on the center cluster. gas cap. wheel rim protectors. Rimzees.  It truly has a very clean factory look about it.
Extremely fun to drive with lots of TURKEY NECKING to see where the sound is coming from  when they hear the RACE MOTTO GUZZI  Exhaust notes.
                 THERE IS ONLY ONE SMARTACUS
Since completion 827 miles have been enjoyed by me.  It is stored every winter and has never left the garage unless the weather was perfect. As much as I enjoy walking into my garagEand looking at it. I just don't drive it enough to justify keeping it.  I have owned as man as 4 Smart Cars at a time. recently just sold my daughters 2006 coupe  and my 2008                Smartavador with Suzuki GSX-R motor.
The opportunity to own a Hayabusa Smart Car doesn't come often.  This vehicle is something that you will not see again.  Many people have contacted me for advice on building issues and complexities that are involved to do such a build. LOTS OF TIME AND MONEY.                    I have yet to speak to anyone who has actually completed one on his own. The ones I have seen running. mostly in Europe. are not anywhere near as finished as this true                  SHOW CAR is.  My personal investment of slightly over 44k. doesn't include the countless hours of research and just plane communicating and running around to get things to continually progress.  

TITLE. S0S312480ILL. I was given this title from the state of Illinois                  2014  SPEC-CONSTD                                      This is NOT A REBUILT TITLE!!!!                  Vehicle imported as Grey Market. I had to post bond prior to acquiring TITLE                   European market vehicle vin  #s are not recognized in the USA. therefor a new vin is issued by the Feds                   All import docs and paperwork completed.
I HAVE PLENTY MORE PICS. and can take more pics by request.  PLEASE serious inquires only. questions based on purchasing my vehicle. I am semi retired and very flexible with time. should make it easy for those who may need to ship.  
WINNER. IMMEDIATE PAYPAL DEPOSIT. $500 the rest to be arranged with buyer.
