Smart ForTwo by Hermès



If any Smart Fortwo owners aren't satisfied with the color and trim options available for the Smart Fortwo, there is an answer and it's not from Lorinser, Brabus or other famous aftermarket tuning companies. No indeed, it comes from a company celebrated for stunning leather goods like Birkin handbags that sell for $15,000 plus.

The company is Hermès and the Hermes Smart ForTwo. This special edition Smart Fortwo is something unique and rather pricey. But who cares if you can afford a $20,000 purse!

To commemorate the Smart MCC and its 10th anniversary, the Como group has custom-built 10 Smart Fortwo’s in 10 different colors, fully clad and upholstered by Hermès.

Ten wealthy clients can choose from ten distinctive color compositions for the interior, together with Hermes’ trademark orange.

The cars will be produced in Orange, Fuchsia Pink, Ebony, Gold, Charcoal, H Red, Bright Red, Indigo, Lime and Sky. The tridion safety cell is covered with the Toile H.

Hermès Releases Custom Smart ForTwo

French design house Hermes is known in the fashion world for its premium leather goods, and now the luxury label has used its unique sense of style and material for the Smart ForTwo minicar, with the release of a new special edition model.

The new model takes advantage of Hermes' specialization in leather goods, with the interior receiving a generous helping of leather trim to give it a more fashionable look compared to the standard cloth seats found in the Smart ForTwo.

The leather covers the door panels, dashboard and seats, as well as other minor details such as the handbrake. The use of leather is accompanied by a special canvas, known as 'Toile H' (French for 'Canvas H'), on other surfaces of the cabin.

Customers will be able to choose from a range of ten color combination's, with yellow, teal, black, red, green, and Hermes' signature orange among the list of options.

Given the nature of Hermes' reputation as a luxury goods manufacturer, the Hermes Smart ForTwo commands a steep premium over the standard model.

While the base Smart ForTwo retails for around $13,990, the Hermes edition is almost three and a half times more expensive, coming in at a heady $48,500.

Interestingly, the Smart ForTwo is not the first car enhanced by Hermes.

The company has previously worked with one special car that sits on the complete other side of the automotive spectrum, the Bugatti Veyron supercar.
