Devilish Smart TDI Dragster Will Cover A 1/4 Mile In 13 Sec

Forget Brabus’ take on the Smart ForTwo. If you really want your puny city car to act as a sleeper in-between stop lights, consider a diesel swap.

Not only has this ForTwo been fitted with a 1.9-liter TDI diesel from a Volkswagen, but the engine has been modified to put down 230 HP, which is a tremendous amount in something that weighs as much as a KTM X-Bow.

This car was being showcased at the Italian Drag Racing Championship event in Carpi, Italy, where it managed a 13.1 second 1/4 mile time, at a speed of nearly 170 km/h (105 mph).

Something else it managed was to leave behind a trail of large diesel particles, otherwise known as “black smoke”, so at least you can forget about getting the most out of it when it comes to fuel economy.

As for the noise, it’s not exactly the best soundtrack you’ll ever hear, but at least it makes its intentions known as soon as the driver starts revving the engine.
