Lego Smart ForTwo

There’s nothing more smug than a Smart parked end-on to the curb. And rightly so. Cars are friggin’ massive these days as designers have made each successive model bigger in order to increase interior space. Which is, frankly, a really lazy way to do it. Mercedes and Swatch thought a little differently, and their 1998 Smart ForTwo was a triumph of clever packaging not seen since the original 1959 Mini.

Ralph Saveslberg‘s Lego recreation of the iconic European city car is similarly clever, with bricks placed sideways, backwards and upside-down in order to replicate the Smart’s famous shape and visible tridion safety cell. Ralph’s ForTwo is available to view on Flickr – click the above for a little more.
