How many people can fit into the diminutive Smart fortwo?The amazing answer is 13, a number that surprised many onlookers following a car cram staged to help celebrate Smart's 10th anniversary. Owners and visitors to the annual Smart Destination Brooklands event held at Mercedes-Benz World in the UK were invited to participate in the Smart-packing challenge.

With the drivers and passengers of 1200 Smarts attending the event, there was no shortage of potential participants, but the winners proved to be the aptly-named `Smart Car-tortionists', a group of body-bending specialists chosen for their gymnastic feats who were the only ones prepared to wear the tight blue body suits!

With remarkable flexibility, a total of 13 contortionists managed to climb aboard the micro Smart, which measures just 8.9ft long by 5.25ft wide, proving that the fortwo is small on the outside but big on the inside.
