The Smart brand is going to significantly transform over the next few years, after Daimler sold 50 percent of the company to Geely. Before making it all-electric, however, they have unveiled a special edition of the ForTwo, which waves goodbye to the combustion-engine models.
Limited to 21 cars, the Final Collector’s Edition has been created by Brabus and industrial designer Konstantin Grcic and sports a very colorful look and special badges.
The paint scheme is actually an homage to the first-gen Smart, with its Brilliant Yellow front end, based on the original Hello Yellow, whereas the rear end has a matte black finish and #21 graphics on the doors and wheel center caps.
The number symbolizes different things. For the auto brand, it represents “21 years of Smart, 21 vehicles and 21 years always a step ahead”. To Grcic, on the other hand, it’s about “being free, breaking boundaries, breaking out, showing your rebellious side. The Final Collector’s Edition brings this essential idea to life as we take our leave of a piece of automotive history.”
The interior has adopted a similar color scheme, with yellow found on the dashboard, steering wheel, driver’s seat and door panels, contrasting the usual black trim. The #21 can be seen on the gearshift lever and embroidered into the headrests, the handbrake lever has the ‘One of 21’ lettering on the side, the floor mats read ‘Final Collector’s Edition’ and the door sills have the ‘Konstantin Grcic Design #21’ graphics.
The special edition ForTwo will leave the factory floor in August.
