Whether you know it as a SmartCar, a Smart City Coupe or a Smart Fortwo, the tiny Mercedes mini has been around since 1998 and has undergone three generations of all-new models. 

When right-hand drive versions landed in 2000 it was one of the first production cars to provide a new take on city mobility because it could seat two and two Fortwos could fit in a parking space of one conventional car.  

It was sold under the City Coupe name, and was also available with a soft top known as the Smart Fortwo Cabriolet, until in 2004 it was rebranded as the Fortwo.

Available with a 698cc, three-cylinder turbocharged engine, you could have 50bhp, 61bhp 74bhp all with a six-speed semi-automatic gearbox. The latter was known as the Brabus and came with a host of racy looking exterior upgrades.
