Smart forjeremy presented in L.A., entering limited production [video added]

Fashion designer Jeremy Scott has created a winged Smart ForTwo Electric Drive.

Debuting this week at the L.A. Auto Show, the Smart forjeremy showcar will go into limited production next year. He worked on this project for eight months in collaboration with the designers at "Smart Design Division" part of the Mercedes-Benz Cars Advanced Design Studios.

The result is a futuristic and bold approach, with a wing made from transparent fiberglass and decorated with rocket-shaped elements that double as rear lights. It wears a bright white paint and has a chrome-plated tridion cell, while inside Nappa leather adorns the instrument panel, door trim and seats.

It is based on the ForTwo Electric Drive that has a 55 kWh electric motor accelerating the city car to 37 mph (60 km/h) in 4.8 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 78 mph (125 km/h). With its 17.6 kWh lithium-ion battery, the vehicle can provide a total range of 90 miles (145 km).

A full description is available in the press release below.
