Crazy smart forjeremy to Go into Production in 2013 [Photo Gallery]
The development offers a haute couture take on the smart fortwo’s electric version and. like we said, it will be offered as a limited edition that will go on sale next year, as confirmed by head of the carmaker, Dr Anette Winkler.
This means that we get a 74 hp electric motor, which uses a 17.6 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, offering a 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) sprint time of 4.8 seconds (sportscar territory detected) and a top speed of 78 mph 125 km/h, while the range sits at about 90 miles (145 km).
The body of the smart forjeremy is finished in white, while the Tridion safety cell of the car, as well as the front grille surround and the visual elements placed above the headlights use chrome plating. The same mix of colors can also be found inside the car.
“Co-operations with fashion designers are normally limited to selecting interior materials and interior and exterior color schemes. With Jeremy Scott, however, we wanted to go one step further and integrated the typical wings as a central design element in the vehicle body. This was quite a challenge, because it was not just a case of creating a showcar but rather of creating a near-series study with the potential for licensing it for road use in the future,” said Head of Mercedes-Benz and Smart design Gorden Wagener.
