Renowned fashion designer Jeremy Scott and Mercedes-Benz’s Smart brand has produced a fascinating showcar: the smart forjeremy. The unique smart forjeremy has wings, a familiar trademark of the American star designer.
“We were totally enthusiastic about the first sketches that Jeremy presented to us”, said Dr. Annette Winkler, Head of smart, during the world premiere. “Both smart and the wings represent a bit of freedom on the crowded streets of major cities. In their respective disciplines, both the fashion designer Jeremy Scott and the smart brand are pioneering trendsetters, venturing into uncharted territories and challenging the status quo.”
The smart forjeremy is based on the current production version of the smart fortwo electric drive. Powered by a 55 kW electric motor the smart fortwo electric drive accelerates from 0 – 60 km/h in 4.8 seconds, with a maximum speed of 125 km/h , and has a range of approximately 145 kilometres in city. The Smart ForJeremy will be launched in 2013 as a limited special edition model.
