Smart fortwo gives you wings because it actually has them

Limited-edition microcar gets blessed by wingman and fashion designer Jeremy Scott.

A new Smart fortwo can actually give you wings -- unlike what happens after drinking those nasty cans of Red Bull.

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.

 That's just not something I'd drive regardless what you glue on it, or what you call it. I like the 2 passenger part for beginning drivers, (fewer advisors from high school)  but the first car for my grandson was a 2 passenger Ford Ranger that we already owned. There's no way I'd pay 14k for one of these little death traps.

 When you are between two tractor trailer trucks and get rear ended by one of them and then pushed into the back of the other one, with the wings you can get a head start to heaven!

A p.o.s. with wings doesn't make it any less of a p.o.s.

Not Smart for Two, not even Smart for One!  I have driven one of these at 70 on the highway with strong winds and uneven lanes. It takes quite a lot of skill to keep it in its lane.  You jump out kissing the ground and staring at your white knuckles.

three cyclinder?  I have a boat motor with four cylinders.   The weeks are freaky and definitely not worth the dollars.  Also, saw a smart car in Cypress, it had been in an accident.  The car did not survive nor did the passengers.  I was surprised the family did not use the car as the casket
