Thank you,


For sale, a very unique collection of Canadian Smart Cars.  All are diesel models from 2005 & 2006.
1) 2006 Brabus Canada1 Concept Car displayed at North American Auto Shows in Toronto and Vancouver and in the hands of only 2 collectors since.  Dash plaque designated as ‘Canada1 #1 of 10’, but only 3 more were ever built, making it #1 of 4.  The other 3 vehicles, cabriolets in red and white, and a red coupe, did not sell and languished at a Toronto dealership for several years.  Basically too high priced for the market in comparison with regular Smart cars, the coupe was around $35,000 and the cabriolets were around $40,000.   This car, #1,  may be the most significant Smart car in North America as diesels were only imported in ‘05 & ‘06 and only into Canada, and it’s a true Concept vehicle, the first of only 4 completely rebuilt by Brabus in Germany from completed cars right off of the Smart factory line.  This cabriolet model was fully dismantled, repainted and reassembled complete with Alcantara leather upholstery plus suade, and every Brabus part and accessory available at the time, as a display and marketing test bed for Brabus in Canada.  All other limited variations of Smart cars, like the KnightRun and the GrandStyle, were built on the regular assembly line.  Vehicle #1 currently is in unrestored and unaltered condition, showing only 25,626Km.  It has documented mileage of approximately 65km per month over the last 3 years.  A new battery and regular fluid/filter maintenance is all that has been carried out, along with the activation of the factory cruise control system and an ECU re-map.  The latter two changes can be easily reversed to restore complete originality for the true collector.  The car is out of winter storage at Legendary Motorcars in Milton, Ontario.  Kept under custom Smart car cover.  Never any mechanical issues and A/C blows cold.  Has vanity plate ‘1 OF 4’.  There is a binder of photos, documentation, newspaper and magazine articles and receipts along with three professional appraisals, 3 years apart (2012, ‘15 & ‘18) and all at $30,000 C$.  More photos available.
Entertaining offers starting at $20,000 C$.
2) 2006 Smart Grandstyle Model cabriolet, #61 of 200.  A unique model built only for Smart Canada, the Grandstyle features special dark green body panels on a silver Tridion together with unique tan leather seating and trim.  Only 200 coupes and cabriolets were made for the Canadian market.  This 2 owner cabriolet model is showing only 54,000 Km.  Currently has limited edition Michalac rims with newer wide Conti/Kumo tires and a ScanGage.  A/C system recharged May/18 and blows cold.
Asking price starting at $8,000 C$.
3) 2005 Smart Passion coupe.  Red panels on a silver Tridion.  Purchased new by current owner, it shows 131,000Km.  Always meticulously maintained, engine was replaced by Mercedes Benz at around 80,000Km.  Recently it has had a new alternator, front rotors and pads (Brembo), 4 new Continental tires and fluid/filters service.  Options are black leatherette seats (perfect condition, no tears), heated seats, paddle shifters and full glass roof.  A/C system recharged last year and blows cold.  Car includes a custom aux audio input, a Brabus under-seat sub woofer, ScanGage and dual cup holder.  Has vanity plate ‘75 MPG’.
Asking price starting at $5,000.
Note.... all three vehicles are on the road, currently licensed and insured.  All 3 have battery tenders wired into system.  The ‘05 Passion has a small stone chip in the windshield.  Otherwise all vehicles should pass the Ontario safety check.  Full histories known on all 3 cars.  All 3 cars passed Ontario’s Drive Clean test within the past 2 years.
I also have some Smart car accessories.... new Brabus sub woofer, floor mats, new steering wheel (without panels), 4 new full wheel covers, an additional custom car cover, outside pass. r/v mirror assy,  4 newer snow tires on Passion Styleline wheels, cup holder, various bulbs, cables, etc.... too much to list here.   Will follow up with list, $ negotiable.
I would entertain an offer of $30,000 C$ for everything.... 3 cars plus all parts and accessories.
Selling cars due to health reasons and a move from my former 900+ sq. ft. garage to a condo with a single car garage, plus the increased need for more seating for grandchildren.
I can be contacted as ‘Smartnhappy’ thru
