2012 Smart For-Us Concept: The Rule-Breaker

Smart is as usual making grate challenges with the ideas that it have presented recently. And more precisely what I consider as a challenging idea is the vision of Smart for an urban pickup. This would probably be the best car not only for the young and people with active lives, but also for those who attach importance to low emissions and taking up minimum road space. As usual the exterior dimensions of the car are designed the minimal possible: length/width/height: 3547/1506/1701mm. It is so small that it coul

2012 Smart ForTwo Electric Drive gives unique zero-emission driving pleasure. What is more, the small city car will soon be available worldwide and that’s not everything. The EV will come along with its new ebike. Great idea, in case you ran out of electricity, which happens very often with these vehicles. The new ForTwo ED is powered by a 55kW (75PS) electric motor, which gives top speed of 120 km/h (75 mph) and 0 to 100 km/h in around 13 seconds.

Smart ForTwo received another tuning package, but this time from the Bulgarian Custom studio Vilner. The small city car is completely transformed both inside and outside. The aim of the company is to create a vehicle, which attracts a lot of attention. Still, Vilner ForTwo will be used as a promotional car. The name of the project is Square Style derived from the chequered motifs on the vehicle. Vilner used orange foil with patterns of stitching for the exterior with full chrome panles and

Smart ForTwo Disco Ball

An interesting idea is to turn a car into a disco ball and not just any type of vehicle, but a Smart ForTwo electric drive. The show car is completely covered in reflective glass tiles from the roof to the tires.

The whole idea came from the experimental band Apparatjik. The group members include well-known pop musicians Magne Furuholmen of
