Created by product designer Konstantin Grcic, the study features a platform for the DJ boot. This can be operated via the special equipment added inside, joined by a mixer console and gooseneck microphone.
The Smart ForTwo EQ Mobile Disco features laminated side supports that stabilize it for DJ-ing, a fog machine behind the radiator grille, different light effects, stroboscope, spotlight, LED matrix lights, back-lit alloy wheels and illuminated underbody. Of course, a mobile disco cannot be complete without a very powerful sound system, and in this case, it comes from JBL.
“The Smart Mobile Disco is a great symbol of the Smart brand’s links with club culture – a scene that draws people together, forges bonds and brings joy”, said the brand’s chief Annette Winkler. The many different facets of club culture all embrace a departure from given norms, a different way of looking at things and the courage to try out something new. This is what links the club culture with Smart.”
The Daimler-owned brand showcased the electric Smart concept at the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein last month, and will bring it to the Salone di Mobile Milano, from April 17 to 22.
And since it’s basically a car built for show purposes, Smart has no intention to build one for the public. However, audiophiles can have their very own JBL sound system fitted to their Smarts, with a 6-channel DSP amplifier in the ForTwo and an 8-channel amplifier in the ForFour. The two-door model gets a total of eight loudspeakers, whereas its slightly larger sibling benefits from as much as twelve.
