Found a site about the design of the Smart Roadster, from sketches through to production. Some interesting designs in the sketches, including some Crossblade type designs with more open wheels.

mehn thanks for posting. Those skeches have a 90's aura oozing all over them. not the sort of design that would come out of a design studio today. But I am a big fan of Smart's funky design language. I'll have to give a big thanks to the originators of the theme. Too bad the production car was priced out of contention.

The last one looks to have been designed by a 6 year old with markers...

Totally!
Bizarrely, I can see a Jeep badge sit quite well on that design.
