Smart Hello Kitty Car

When we lived in Germany smart cars were all over! They are slowly coming to the US as well – have you already seen some..? Smart is tiny-tiny, and probably not the safest car in the highways for its size, but probably the handiest car if you live in New York City (talk about easy parking!). Not for shopaholics, because with tiny size comes tiny trunk as well. While I’m sure there is a lot to say about the gas consumption and how economic this shoebox sized car is, the best thing about smart is that it comes in all of the colors in rainbow and you can match the car with your nail polish.

Better yet for true fashionistas; you can get a smart is numerous different prints (the entire car is wrapped in 3M vinyl wrap), and this year smart USA teamed up with Sanrio to even bring Hello Kitty to our streets – in a form of Hello Kitty wrapped smart cars. The smart-partnership with Sanrio is part of celebrating Sanrio’s 50th Anniversary.
