Our first drive of Smart-Roadsters race prepared Roadster to hoping compete in race series alongside Smart forTwo 450 and 451 models in the Smarts4youracing Cup.
This unusual version, reported to be mainly Italy and Europe, was a sales based incentive to a large company making optical products with a limited edition of just 100

We have been lucky recently to get to fit some LSD (Lambo Style Doors) vertical doors to a beautiful Smart Roadster RCR, this low mileage car with only 12,000 miles from new is in excellent condition and really looked after and loved by its owner.

Both the car and the vertical door kits are very distinctive and always draw attention. The kit supplied by KW Automotive GmbH have been in production since 2003 (we fitted our first kit on a LHD 80 Roadster in 2004) and the comprehensive kits feature quality components and precision construction with the TUV type approval meaning it has been tested and exceeds the highest testing standards.
