SMART FORTWO PASSION TURBO PETROL (84BHP VERSION) MOTORHOME OR AMERICAN MOTORHOME RV TOW CAR
LATEST UPDATE 05/07/18 1530HRS:
WE DECIDED TO TAKE THE CAR FOR AN MoT RATHER THAN WAIT UNTIL IT IS SOLD, JUST IN CASE SOMEONE WOULD LIKE TO TURN UP, PAY AND TAKE HER AWAY.
IT HAS A NEW MoT NOW, NO ADVISORIES NOTHING AT ALL, SO IT CONTINUES ITS EXCELLENT HISTORY.
WE HAVE HAD A FEW QUESTIONS ASKED ALREADY, THE FIRST TO ASK IF THIS HAS TO BE USED AS A TOW CAR, SIMPLY PUT THE ANSWER IS NO.
IF YOU DO NOT WANT IT AS SUCH WE CAN HAPPILY USE OUR TOW EQUIPMENT ON ANOTHER, WE WOULD JUST GIVE YOU AN ALLOWANCE BACK FOR THE FRAME ETC, IT STILL REPRESENTS EXCEPTIONAL VALUE FOR A SMART FORTWO TURBO PETROL EVEN AT FULL PRICE & MORE WITH THIS CONDITION, HISTORY AND MILEAGE.
Do we have a spare key with the car?
Yes we do and it is fully working.
Do we have service history?
Yes we do, there is all the original books and manuals with the car plus a whole bunch of invoices for work and servicing that has been carried out.
Does it have a CD player?
Yes it does, it has the top end original fully working Smart Radio/CD unit with the added advantage of now having a DAB radio with phone connection etc.
Can the roof be opened?
No the roof only opens on the convertible/cabriolet versions, which I understand moves the cars up a few insurance groups as obviously they are more vulnerable to theft or damage, this is only an insurance group 5.
Is the car FULLY automatic?
Yes it is, it can be manually changed if you wish the same as the Porsche 'TipTronic', however you simply push the button on the side of the gear lever to either select manual or fully auto.
Have you welded the subframe as everyone else does in order to use the two eyes to fix the tow frame on?
Simply put NO!!
We do not like the idea of welding such an important section of the vehicle, we actually import from the USA the correct new front subframe section which is then bolted onto the structure in place of the original, much safer and then genuine Mercedes/Smart parts are used throughout, no compromise!
Any doubt that this is a good well maintained car previously, check its MoT history on the gov.uk website, you will not find many Smart's with this sort of MoT history!
It will also remember come with a brand new MoT on sale to it's lucky new owner.
NEWLY CONVERTED BY US TO ACT AS A MOTORHOME TOW CAR OR AS THEY ARE KNOWN, 'TOWED' (SOME CALL IT A TOAD)
FULLY FITTED OUT WITH ALL OUR NORMAL INTEGRAL ELECTRICS & BRAKING PACKAGE.
WITH ALL THE ELECTRICS, THESE NOW WORK EXACTLY THE SAME AS IF YOU WERE DRIVING THE CAR, SO ALL THE LIGHTS WORK AS THEY WOULD FROM THE TOW VEHICLE, SIMPLY PLUG IN, CLIP ON THE NEW BRAKING CABLE AND THE TOW BAR AND GO.
HAS A CORRECT TOW PACKAGE INCLUDED WITH IT THAT CAN BE ATTACHED IN 1 MINUTE AND THE SAME OFF.
WE ALSO INCLUDE A 'JOCKEY WHEEL' WITH OUR PACKAGE SO THAT IF NEEDS BE, YOU CAN UN CLIP IT FROM YOUR MOTORHOME OR RV AND DRIVE IT TO THE CAMP SITE WITH THE FRAME STILL ATTACHED, GREAT IF YOU ARE NEEDING TO MOVE IT IN A HURRY.
WE WILL INCLUDE ALL YOU WILL NEED WITH IT, ELECTRIC COILED LEAD AND PINS, CLIPS ETC SO YOUR READY TO GO.
NOW ONTO THE CAR ITSELF.
THIS IS THE PETROL TURBO MODEL, THIS HAS MUCH MUCH MORE POWER THAN THE OTHERS, VERY QUICK BUT ALSO ECONOMICAL IF YOU DON'T REALLY WANT TO USE ALL THE POWER.
IT HAS A VIRTUALLY BRAND NEW SET OF MATCHING CONTINENTAL CONTACT TYRES ALL ROUND.
HAS ALSO BEEN FITTED WITH THE NEW SUMP PAN WHICH HAS A OIL DRAIN PLUG IN IT, NEARLY ALL THE OTHERS HAVE NO OIL DRAIN PLUG, THIS MEANS THEY NEVER REALLY HAVE THE OIL FULLY CHANGED, BUT YOU CAN WITH THIS ONE.
DO NOT CONFUSE THIS WITH THE EARLY VERSIONS OF THE SMART CAR THAT HAD ENGINE ISSUES ON MANY, THIS HAS THE ULTRA RELIABLE MITSUBISHI ENGINE.
WE HAVE FULLY SERVICED IT AND IT WILL ALSO COME WITH A BRAND NEW MoT ON SALE TO ITS NEW OWNERS.
IN ADDITION, OUR ELECTRICIAN HAS ALONG WITH THE NEW INTEGRATED ELECTRICS, FITTED A DAB RADIO UNIT, THIS ALSO HAS THE INPUT TO USE AN iPHONE OR OTHER COMPATIBLE PHONE WITH IT.
WE HAVE SERVICED THE AIR CONDITIONING AS WELL, SO THIS IS ICE COLD READY FOR THOSE HOT SUMMER DAYS.
WE HAVE ALSO FITTED THIS MORNING, A NEW SET OF GENUINE SMART FRONT & REAR MUDFLAPS.
THE BODY IS VIRTUALLY UNMARKED ALL ROUND AS ARE THE WHEELS, THE OTHER GOOD NEWS WITH THE TYRES IS THAT THEY HAVE A DEEP KERBING BAND TO STOP YOU DAMAGING THE WHEELS THEMSELVES.
WITH THIS TURBO MODEL YOU ALSO GET THE UPRATED BRAKES THAT ARE MUCH LARGER ON THE FRONT FOR GREATER STOPPING POWER.
IT HAS THE GLASS ROOF WHICH ALSO HAS THE OPTIONAL ROOF BLIND AS WELL TO KEEP OUT THE SUN IF YOU WISH.
INTERIOR IS AGAIN UN MARKED AND WILL COME WITH A NEW SET OF SMART CARPET FLOOR MATS.
ANOTHER BONUS IS THAT WHEN WE UNDERTOOK ALL THE NEW ELECTRICS TO THE CAR, WE ALSO TOOK THE OPPORTUNITY TO FULLY SOUNDPROOF THE FLOOR ETC, THIS HAS BEEN DONE WITH ALL NEW 'DYNAMAT' TYPE MATERIAL, AS SUCH IT IS NOW REALLY SILENT INSIDE.
CURRENTLY THESE ARE GROUP 5 INSURANCE AND ONLY COST £30 A YEAR TO TAX, BUT YOU STILL GET AT LEAST 57MPG, SO REALLY CHEAP MOTORING WITH ALL THE EXTRA BITS YOU GET WITH THIS TRIM LEVEL OF THE PASSION +
SO IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT A SMART CAR TO TOW BEHIND YOUR MOTORHOME OR RV, THEN THIS IS THE ONE TO BE SERIOUS ABOUT.
COME AND INSPECT AND FEEL FREE TO ASK AS MANY QUESTIONS AS YOU WISH.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE SOMEONE TO INSPECT IT FOR YOU, BY ALL MEANS FEEL FREE, THIS IS A GREAT LITTLE CAR AND UNBEATABLE AT THE PRICE.
