Collaborations are always happening in the auto industry. Whether it’s with a fashion label, a timepiece maker or even a furniture company, there aren’t any shortages of partnerships that give birth to special-edition models.
Built and designed in collaboration with the Danish interior design company BoDesign, the fortwo Concept is based on the cabriolet version of the [fortwo->http://www.topspeed.com/cars/smart/2012-smart-fortwo-ar124008.html and was designed to really catch peoples’ attention.
For starters, the fortwo BoConcept was given a matte-white paint, and complemented by a roof and door mirrors that were treated to a matte oriental brown metallic finish. The exterior is then fitted with a set of Brabus Monoblock VII alloy wheels to give off a pretty impressive look for a smart fortwo.
Inside, smart and BoDesign wanted to recreate a mobile living space and, for the most part, they accomplished that by using such materials like tobacco brown leather covers the steering wheel, seats and door trim panels, a grey finish on the doors and backrests, light-lemon stitching on the seats and the steering wheel, and a few more yellow accents on the mirrors.
All told, there really is something about the fortwo BoConcept that catches your attention. Take away the fact that it’s a fortwo for a second and concentrate on the uniqueness of the product; that’s what makes this collaboration pretty special.
