THIS HAS TO BE ONE OF THE VERY BEST AND LOWEST MILEAGE UK RHD SMART ROADSTERS LEFT, NOT ONLY THAT IT IS THE ACTUAL CAR THAT "AUTOCAR" MAGAZINE ROAD TESTED WHEN THE ROADSTER WAS LAUNCHED IN THE UK AND IF YOU GOOGLE SMART ROADSTER YOU WILL IMMEDIATELY SEE IMAGES OF THIS VERY CAR ! IT'S VERY MUCH PART OF SMARTS HISTORY.

ORIGINALLY SPEC'D AS A BLACK GLOSS HARDTOP CAR WITH THE LUX AND SPORTS PACK THE CAR HAS THE SILVER TRIDION WITH CONTRASTING "SPICE RED" BODY PANELS, ( IN MY OPINION THE BEST COLOUR COMBINATION ). THE SPORT PACK SPEC INCLUDES THE 3 SPOKE PADDLE SHIFT STEERING WHEEL AND ICONIC "SPIKELINE" ALLOY WHEELS, THE INTERIOR IS ALL ORIGINAL WITH HEATED LEATHER SEATS.
I HAVE SOLD AROUND 100 ROADSTERS OVER THE YEARS AND THIS IS WITHOUT DOUBT THE BEST KEPT CHERISHED LOW MILEAGE EXAMPLE I'VE EVER FOUND, IT LOOKS AND DRIVES JUST LIKE A NEW ONE, I'VE NEVER SEEN A BETTER ONE, AND THE HISTORY OF THE CAR MAKES IT ESPECIALLY INTERESTING.
I WAS CONTACTED ABOUT THIS CAR IN MID 2020 AND GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO BUY IT.
FIRST REGISTERED KEEPER WAS MERCEDES SMART UK THEMSELVES, THEN FOLLOWING IT'S PRESS DUTIES WE UNDERSTAND THAT THE CAR WAS SOLD TO IT'S ONE AND ONLY PRIVATE OWNER, A LADY, WHO KEPT IT GARAGED AT HER HOME IN EALING, WEST LONDON.
BY ALL ACCOUNTS IT WAS HER PRIDE AND JOY AND ONLY WENT OUT ON DRY DAYS, ( WHICH JUDGING BY THE CONDITION UNDERNEATH LOOKS TO BE THE CASE)
DURING HER OWNERSHIP IT ONLY CLOCKED UP AN AVERAGE OF ABOUT 1, 000-1, 500 MILES A YEAR, DESPITE THIS IT WAS REGULARLY SERVICED BY A LOCAL INDEPENDENT GARAGE AND KEPT IN FINE FETTLE.
THE LADY THEN STOPPED DRIVING AROUND 2016 AND THE CAR WAS THEN LAID UP IN THE GARAGE COVERED UP AND DRY. AND LOOKED AFTER BY HER BROTHER WHEN HE WAS DOWN IN LONDON AND REGULARLY RUN UP TO KEEP THE BATTERY CHARGED AND EVERYTHING WORKING.
WE WENT TO EALING TO BUY THE CAR WHERE IT HAD BEEN STORED IN THE BONE DRY INTEGRAL GARAGE OF THE LADY'S HOUSE, IT WAS COVERED IN DUST BUT OTHERWISE PERFECT.
WE WENT THROUGH SOME INITIAL CHECKS AND THEN PUSHED THE CAR OUT INTO THE OPEN AIR AND IT STARTED STRAIGHT UP FIRST TIME. AS IT WARMED UP I CHECKED OVER EVERYTHING AND ONLY FOUND A DEFECTIVE HEATER FAN SWITCH ( WHICH THE LOCAL GARAGE HAD BY-PASSED WITH AN AFTERMARKET SWITCH). AFTER IT WARMED UP THEN DROVE IT FOR A SHORT TEST DRIVE AND AS ALL WAS WELL DROVE IT STRAIGHT BACK TO MY WORKSHOP. THE CAR DROVE WITHOUT FAULT AND IS ABSOLUTELY BONE DRY INSIDE THROUGHOUT.
IT IS HARD TO DESCRIBE JUST HOW NICE THIS CAR IS, THE OIL IS HONEY COLOURED, THE STEERING WHEEL AND SEATS AND INTERIOR OVERALL ARE LIKE NEW, IT STILL HAS A LOT OF THE MANUFACTURERS STICKERS ON THE RUNNING GEAR, IT REALLY IS LIKE A NEW CAR.
WE HAVE BEEN OVER THE CAR AND CARRIED OUT ALL THE USUAL PREVENTATIVE WATERPROOFING WORKS WE NORMALLY DO ON ROADSTERS AS WELL AS A FULL CHECK OVER AND SERVICE INCLUDING REPLACING THE FAN SWITCH WITH A CORRECT OEM PART SO IT IS AS IT WOULD HAVE BEEN ORIGINALLY. A NEW 12 MONTH MOT WILL BE CARRIED OUT FOR THE NEW OWNER AT TIME OF SALE.
BOTH KEYS COME WITH THE CAR, ONE FOR THE COLLECTION OR JUST DRIVE AND ENJOY THIS BIT OF SMART HISTORY.
