Starting in the 5th Century A.D. there began a new religious movement known as “self-flagellation” where certain Christian sects would actually inflict wounds upon themselves (usually with whips) so that they could feel closer to understanding the pain Jesus went through on the Cross. Spiritually, it was the ultimate way to show reverence to Jesus and while you won’t find many Christians who whip themselves regularly today, there are apparently plenty of people looking for some pain and torture in the new automotive “Green Movement.” But what is the cost of going “green” and will it ever work for you?
As long as there are humans on Earth, we will continue altering our environment and ravenously using up our precious resources. But there are some answers out there. Let’s just say that, as far as we can see, the 2011 Smart ForTwo Passion Cabriolet which we recently test drove for a week was sadly much like a car without a purpose or a punch line without a joke. We had trouble figuring out what it was doing in the United States when clearly our roads are not built for this skittish, jittery and generally unpleasant to drive car.
It may not be quite like “torture” but if you buy a 2011 Smart ForTwo Cabriolet Passion it can only serve as a method of “self-flagellation” for those with serious eco-guilt. And if you have that kind of psychosis then perhaps this is the vehicle for you as Smart claims the car in 95% recyclable which is odd since so much of it feels like it’s made out of Styrofoam.
