The LA Auto Show has some interesting cars for its visitors. One such car is the Smar Forjeremy. This is an electric car designed by fashion designer Jeremy Scott. The car is based on German small car firm Smart's Smart Fortwo Electric Drive.

Jeremy Scott has aimed at an Avant-garde and futuristic look to the Smart Forjeremy and has been successful in doing that. Have a look at the unique concept car in this photo feature.

Designed By American Fashion Designer

The unique smart forjeremy has wings - a familiar trademark of the American star designer. The wings light up like igniting rockets to form avant-garde rear lights.

The smart Forjeremy showcar will be launched next year as a limited special edition. It is now on show at the LA Auto Show.

Wings To Symbolize Freedom

Jeremy Scott has explained the wings in the Smart Forjeremy  by stating: "For me, wings mean freedom, a sense of weightlessness. Because of this, I definitely wanted to have them for the smart electric drive in order to convey the way it frees the environment of noxious emissions and symbolises the new lightness of mobility."

Interior design

Jeremy has used fine white nappa leather and chrome in the Smart Forjeremy's interior.
