Winged Smart Set to Fly into Production

ForJeremy is Bright, White, and Bizarre

Toni Avery
Apr 23, 2013

The Smart ForJeremy is one of the most bizarre looking cars I have ever seen. Painted in a bright white hue, its exterior and interior match completely, which is little too much if you ask me, but then again, that's probably the point. When it was first shown at the 2013 L.A. auto show as a concept, the thought was that it would stay that way. But now it is going into production in coupe-only form with one of three powerplants: base electric drive, a Brabus-tuned electric drive, or a Brabus-tuned 102 hp gas engine.

Why the wings, you may be wondering? The collaboration on this Smart is with Jeremy Scott, famed fashion designer who uses a wing motif on all his designs. But on a car, really? I guess the Batmobile gets a pass, but that was for a fictional movie, not a production car.

If I were to be objective, I would have to say that the way the wings light up is pretty neat and well as the red glow that emanates into the interior from the wings. The chrome strip toward the rear of the car is a nice touch, as are the 16-and 17-inch Monoblock alloy wheels finished in, what else, white.

But just because I think it's completely ridiculous looking doesn't mean everyone will. But with the outrageous price point of $43,495 for the 102-hp, Brabus-tuned model, $45,409 for the 73 hp electric drive, and $52,978 for the 80-hp Brabus electric drive, I'm not sure how many people will be flocking to showrooms for the winged Smart.
