The new Smart Roadster has been outed thanks to a filing with the European Patent Office. See the renderings inside

The Smart ForTwo cabriolet hasn't set the automotive world ablaze, but that hasn't stopped the company from developing a new roadster.

Seen here in renderings filed with the European Patent Office, the roadster will feature an aerodynamic design with a low windscreen and a prominent roll bar.

While a similar vehicle - the Crossblade - went into limited production, we're inclined to believe this is a concept which will preview the styling direction for the next-generation ForTwo. If that's the case, don't be surprised if the roadster shows up at an auto show in the near future.
