Smart fortwo gives you wings because it actually has them
Limited-edition microcar gets blessed by wingman and fashion designer Jeremy Scott.
Smart is putting its wild winged concept from the 2012 Tokyo Motor Show, designed with help from fashion designer Jeremy Scott, into a limited production model called the forjeremy.
It's a regular fortwo "for cool people all over the world," according to Scott, with two wingtips glued above the taillights, deep gloss white Alubeam paint, white wheels and white diamond-stitched leather seats.
Unfortunately, those wings don't make the fortwo move any quicker, as there's only 102 horsepower on tap from its 3-cylinder gasoline engine.
For better, there's a choice of two electric drive trims, one of which is tuned by Mercedes specialist Brabus. It's on sale only in Europe, presumably because Americans aren't up to paying $33,000 for a tiny car made by a guy who sells $415 sweaters patterned with Bart Simpson's face.
Scott's other designs for Adidas echo the winged sandals of the Greek god Hermes; look past the pink poodle shoes and you'll find some very snazzy hightops with wings. Apparently to no surprise, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Kanye West are quite into Scott's outlandish creations.
But they don't drive Smart cars.
Lesson for today.
