The Smart Forjeremy - based on the ForTwo electric drive - has been unveiled at the LA Motor Show

This wild-looking Smart Forjeremy - which is based on the Smart Fortwo electric drive - is the work of US designer Jeremy Scott and has been unveiled at the Los Angeles Motor Show.

Scott’s signature wings have been added to the bodywork, and the fiber-glass extensions also illuminate to act as brake lights. There’s also eyebrow covers over the headlights, which feature black bezels, as well as chrome mirror caps and alloy wheels that have been designed to look like aircraft propellers.

There’s stark white diamond-stitched Nappa leather upholstery inside, with chrome detailing and a futuristic aircraft-like steering wheel.

The electric drivetrain, which debuts in the new Smart Fortwo electric drive next year, has a 74bhp/130Nm electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack that provides a range of up to 90 miles. It has a charge time that ranges from seven hours with the standard charging equipment, through to a rapid one-hour charge with an optional fast-charging set-up.

Smart says that the Forjeremy could go into production as a limited-edition model in 2013.
