The forfun² - Two Iconic Vehicles Combined

smart has developed a fortwo with monster ambitions. The forfun² has the body of a smart fortwo mounted on an all-terrain Mercedes-Benz Unimog 406 series.

The Greek 4x4 Rally Champion, Stefan Attart, joined forces with Mercedes-Benz Greece, to design and develop this one-off vehicle.

The engine and transmission are adopted from the Unimog and the vehicle has a six-cylinder diesel engine with a capacity of 5,675 cc delivering 84 bhp. By comparison, a fortwo diesel has a 41 bhp engine.

The vital statistics of the forfun² include ground clearance of more than 2ft, eye popping tyres on 26 inch rims, and a towering 12 ft height.

Attart wanted maximum off-road mobility which makes the Unimog 406 the perfect platform. He added oversized wheels, an aluminium safety cage, and his design team used special shock absorbers with manually controlled air suspension, which is an advantage on steep downhill slopes.

The more traditional smart range is available from smart retailers, starting from £6,775 OTR.
