Watch: Smart Car says 'Hello Kitty'

Based on functionality, you'd think the Smart car ought to be the cheapest car you can buy but it's not. Not quite, anyway. What you get is two seats, a tiny three-cylinder engine and a rough-shifting transmission all wrapped inside a tall body that pitches forward and aft over bumps. The ForTwo is super-easy to park, infinitely customizable and a sure-fire conversation starter, though.
