Photographed in Tokyo’s Shibuya Station is this awesome oddity – a vending machine for the virtually disposable little Smart Car. You may select a convertible or hard-topped model, depending on how flash you’re feeling.
Then you can drive off looking very silly indeed.
Obviously it’s not real. You won’t get a car out of it – just some promotional pamphlets about the Smart Car “lifestyle.” The Smart Car vendor is actually little more than a fancy mobile advert for Smart that’s doing the rounds of public spaces out there in Japan.
There’s a schedule of the vendor’s appearances on the Japanese Smart home page. For such a simple car, that’s one hell of a complicated web site it’s got there.
