Things are getting a bit weird today as the oddballs of the upcoming show season make their first appearances. First up, we have the 2012 Smart For-Us Concept, a micro-pickup based on the familiar Smart ForTwo platform. Does it make sense? Of course not.
Next, the Rinspeed Dock+Go, which attempts to make the Smart ForTwo ED (electric drive) more useful by adding a third axle and some extra cargo space. Does this make sense? More than the ForTwo or the For-Us, but still, not much.
Finally, another Ferrari 458 Italia has met its end at the hands of its driver, which went nose-first into a ditch in the U.K. in what appear to be moderately snowy conditions. It's a shame, but it's really not a surprise anymore.
Check out all of these and more in the links below.
