Smart brings production-ready ForJeremy to Shanghai as it readies the winged city car for limited run.
Apparently Daimler has received enough interest in fashion designer Jeremy Scott's Smart car unveiled at the 2012 LA Auto Show that it has decided to put the Smart ForJeremy into limited run production. The announcement came at the Shanghai Auto Show where a slightly toned-down variant of the special model is currently being showcased. Scott's signature wings remain, albeit without the integrated brake lights, complemented by Alubeam and polar white paintwork, 16/17-inch alloys and Jeremy Scott branding.
Complementing the exterior finish, white also dominates the leather-clad interior, which comes compete with white-trimmed black velour floor mats and a white leather-wrapped three-spoke sports steering wheel. The Jeremy Scott edition Smart Fortwo will be available as a coupe only (not with the cabrio model's sliding fabric roof) and comes with a choice of three engines: the 55kW Electric Drive (34,800 Euros), the 60kW Brabus Electric Drive (40,600 Euros), and a Brabus 102-horsepower gasoline unit (33,333 Euros). No word on pricing for the US, but we're hoping that - wings notwithstanding - it never actually makes it over here.
As you'll see from the video, the rolling piece of haute couture was a big hit at Tokyo Fashion Week. Production will begin this month, after which expect to see Lady Gaga rolling around town in one.
