These pictures that show the frame by itself are cool to look at. You forget that so much of the car is just some sheet metal and carpet. Thanks for posting this.

Hasn't that made the cars both safer and lighter though?

at least seeing the frame like this it does help to see why it's safe.

That's the shell of the Smart ForFour. I believe the Twingo is different. Could be wrong...

No I'm sure it's a Twingo. Look at the C-pillar.

What's exciting is the external air intake on the rear left wing! Could this be "proof" of an up and coming RS?
