Acclaimed for its world-beating emissions of only 88 g/km, the 45 bhp CDI was the ideal choice for the two-day event that aimed to demonstrate how careful eco-driving can significantly reduce the fuel costs and CO2 emissions of the country's motorists and enhance safety.
Mick achieved the best ever mpg figure in the event's seven-year history and improved on the CDI's official combined fuel economy figure of 85.6mpg by over 13 per cent. "I'm already looking forward to next year's competition when I hope to achieve another record breaking figure by exceeding the 100 mpg barrier", explained Mick, who has previously driven a Smart from London to Edinburgh on a single tank of fuel.
Dermot Kelly, Managing Director, Mercedes-Benz Cars, said: "Smart has always been renowned for its unique style but this fantastic mpg result and its all-conquering emissions mean that Smart now really leads the way when it comes to low ownership costs, a fact which is attracting an ever-increasing number of car buyers to the iconic brand".
From October 2009 the Smart CDI costs from £9,227.55 on the road.Special edition Smart ForTwo for UK
