Just click the video below - If you're early to the stream, it seems to be playing the "big city car" video on loop, with a message about the event in between playings. Enjoy! EDIT: Video is no longer live streaming. Here's a Youtube link to the actual "reveal" of the new car:

Latest Prototype 453

23 Sep 2013

Posted by Mike T in Front Page News
The new fortwo has been revealed in its more or less definitive form, but it's still somewhat disguised. Note the four wheel bolts!

These are the first spy pics depicting the production variant of next year’s Smart ForTwo.
Up until now we only saw test mules of the second-gen ForTwo but now we get the chance to take a look at the rear-wheel drive city car in production form which is scheduled to come out sometime in 2014. The ForTwo will be available strictly as a two-door model but a ForFour revival with two additional doors is also in the pipeline with a stretched wheelbase to accommodate two rear passengers.
The Smart duo will share platform with the next-gen Renault Twingo which will be offered exclusively as a five-door model. Reports are indicating Smart is planning an electric version of the ForTwo powered by an 87 bhp (65 kW) electric motor. Regular versions will be available with several three-cylinder gasoline and diesel versions, including a turbocharged gasoline motor developing 84 bhp (63 kW) and 104 bhp (77 kW).

    @  FlossyTheSmart : (20 September 2014 - 10:50 AM) nope, just gibberish
    @  Francesco : (20 September 2014 - 10:09 AM) Let me guess: QuickType on your new iPhone 6?
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (20 September 2014 - 09:10 AM) Has Anyone Really Been Far Even as Decided to Use Even Go Want to do Look More Like?
    @  Mike T : (20 September 2014 - 08:17 AM) gabba gabba hey
    @  cadillacman : (20 September 2014 - 07:58 AM) this is like the smell of the colour nine
    @  Francesco : (20 September 2014 - 07:48 AM) I think Lazer was my favourite American Gladiator
    @  marchanna : (20 September 2014 - 04:37 AM) random?
    @  you-are : (19 September 2014 - 09:17 PM) turbo
    @  marchanna : (19 September 2014 - 07:07 PM) fair enough
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (19 September 2014 - 07:02 PM) It's certainly not concerning enough to put any man-hours into it.
    @  marchanna : (19 September 2014 - 07:01 PM) True, but if the moderator didn't approve it then it would be deleted and the space would be reclaimed. The issue of bandwidth however still remains, and I don't know if that is an issue or not.
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (19 September 2014 - 06:56 PM) If you needed moderator approval, the image would still have to be uploaded and the space would still be taken up ;)  But we're not really that close to the limit anyway.  The inability to mass upload a huge number of pictures all at once though is naturally slowing the rate at which we fill up though.
    @  marchanna : (19 September 2014 - 06:53 PM) Maybe for the time being having a moderator approval for all uploaded images to ensure space isn't exceeded.
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (19 September 2014 - 06:53 PM) but of course, any time you upload an image to the site, you should be able to re-add it to later posts, using the "my media" button in the editor.
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (19 September 2014 - 06:52 PM) nice***
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (19 September 2014 - 06:52 PM) A gallery is an option, but would require more server space for sure. We don't have a huge amount of storage right now, and not having a photo gallery is probably keeping us from filling up instantly. I agree it would be ice.
    @  marchanna : (19 September 2014 - 06:49 PM) I'm not terribly concerned with posting pics in the shout box. It would be nice alternatively to have a photo album that pics can be uploaded to, so that when we link images to posts there are permanent on the site and don't get lost when the source is shut down or hat not
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (19 September 2014 - 06:21 PM) well yeah, but that's not necessarily intuitive.
    @  Francesco : (19 September 2014 - 06:20 PM) even the regular interface allows BBCode including the[img] tag
