Read this and though it was worth sharing, I was never a fan of the smart car, but now with the fiat coming into production it looks like Lotus wants its share of the market too. But i think with a 45k price tag they arent gunna do too much business, id pick up a 500 before that and I think many other people would as well. Personally preference in the end but I kinda like the look of the front of the ethos.

What about the Aston Martin Cygnet

ive like that one too, but just think it could do without the hood vents, we all know its not a bullet :p. The price of that guy is up there as well im pretty sure, 35-43k if i remember right, somewhre in there. So the prices are something like this:

fiat- fully loaded under 23k
aston martin- 35-43k
lotus-about 45k

fiat seems to have the market with at leas 10k on any of the others, im thinking the aston martin and lotus are for those whom already own a fast car from that brand or for celebrities and they will be a fad.

thats how i feel too, but if you could produce that lotus version for 22k like the fiat then thats a different story and i would give it though for a DD if i ever did some heavy work to my jeep.

What about a tricked-out Brabus smart car for 20k ?

Lotus is nuts trying to sell this thing for 45k.
