Pros & cons


Like nothing else on the road; great fun


No doors, no windscreen, no roof...

This mad roofless, door-less smart is not for the faint hearted. It’s totally open to the elements and only comes in left-hand-drive. Unsurprisingly only a handful were sold to a few brave (although windswept and rain-lashed) Brits. This is a fantastic car if you live somewhere with year round good weather and you need something to whizz you to the beach but you’d have to be a motorcyclist to try running one as your only car in the UK.

However no other car turns heads as much as a Crossblade in February.
