Project Kimber’s ’AC Smart’ - final design?
Project Kimber will revive the Smart Roadster revive under the AC name. The AC Smart will be build at a site in the UK and there were invested $65m to build it.
Lord James of Blackheath, charman of Kimber admited that the plan was behind schedule: "It is taking longer to achieve than we originally hoped. We have a number of significant investors who are close to commitment and require at least one more to do so before we close the book. We expect to be able to announce that this has been completed in the near future."
Kimber intends to redesign and re-engineer the vehicles, and will give them a new look. There will be commonality between the models in componentry like their doorhandles, and apparently in some of their panels.
