With more than a passing nod to the home interior passions of the discerning consumer, smart have introduced the new smart fortwo BoConcept edition, produced in conjunction with ace Danish urban interior design specialist, BoConcept.
And that nod looks at all those things that you thought that you would only see on Grand Designs like matt surfaces, distinctive colours and bold material combinations, meaning the limited edition model will be joining some of the most-sought after properties on the must-have list.
The smart fortwo BoConcept edition features matt crystal white body panels, light lemon mirror caps, BoConcept logos in the mirror triangles, and accents on the 15”nine-spoke alloy wheels; all meaning, of course, that there is no doubt that this is a car that you would WANT to be seen and in as well as being the car TO be seen in because there is no mistaking its Danish design credentials.
Gary Savage, Managing Director, Mercedes-Benz Cars said: “It’s testament to the strength of the collaboration between smart and BoConcept that this new edition has evolved, as it provides a stylish mix of contemporary design and style for urban living.”
And while we are on the subject of living (see what I did there?), you can take a quick tour inside and see the unique tobacco brown leather-look seats with grey quilted fabric inlays and light lemon double stitching; the same colour-styled dashboard, door panels and kneepad, and a two-spoke racing style leather steering wheel also with matching light lemon double stitching.
There is no doubting that the smart fortwo BoConcept is in with a shot of becoming a style icon all on its own without the help of the availability of two bodystyles (coupé and cabrio), highline multimedia and navigation system with 6.5-inch touch-screen, Bluetooth, iPod interface, CD/DVD player, air conditioning and electric windows all as standard.
And we should ask the question of this is the first ever car to influence a range of interior furnishings that could grace any home with smartness and style far beyond anything that you may have at the moment?
Because BoConcept have, in conjunction with smart, released a home collection that reflects the colour scheme and materials of the smart fortwo BoConcept edition. We are talking about a sofa that has been made to the exact same compact measurements of a smart fortwo (2.69 metres), a lounge chair that resembles (or at least contains many of the elements of) a car seat, and a modern looking coffee table.
There are even accessories such as smartville tableware and special cushions that you can buy to remind you of your car; even a table clock that resembles the one in the cockpit of the smart fortwo BoConcept.
In fact, you will feel like you live in your car 24/7!
