We have seen all kinds of crazy things in the past, but by far this one is the one of the looniest. Smart , in collaboration with fashion designer Jeremy Scott, have unveiled a very strange-looking smart fortwo electric drive at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show.
Called smart forjeremy this interesting concept has been described as "an avant-garde and futuristic smart with loving details based on the overriding wing theme." The concept is painted in bright white and on each side you will notice a wing made of transparent fiberglass. These wings are decorated with rocket-shaped elements and serve as rear and brake lights. The car’s white paint has been combined with a chrome-plated tridion cell, chromed eyebrows, mirror caps and the frame around the radiator grille.
The car is equipped with wider rear tires and wider rear wheel arches that reveal a very interesting set of wheels shaped like airplane propellers.
The same white theme continues into the cabinr where the designer opted for fine white Nappa leather for the instrument panel, seats and door trim. The leather is contrasted by chrome surfaces on the main door trim, the closing handles, the instrument panel side boomerangs and the characteristic rings around the instruments. The driver will enjoy an open-top white steering wheel with two chrome spokes.
The smart forjeremy is based on the current production version of the smart fortwo electric drive powered by a 73-horsepower electric motor. It can sprint from 0 to 60 km/h (37.3 mph) in 4.8 seconds and can hit a top speed of 125 km/h (77.7 mph).
