The right hand drive smart roadster was launched in the UK in September 2003 with a new brand slogan 'Open Your Mind'. With the introduction of the roadster you are now able to 'Open Your Roof' at the touch of a button and re-live the roadster driving experience of the 1950’s and 1960’s.

The roadster's philosophy is a modern take on a classic design and coupled with its curvaceous balanced proportions and high level of standard safety equipment - smart have 'digitally re-mastered' the sports car.
