Apparatjik rocks the disco-ball Smart Fortwo – Click above to watch video after the jump

What happens if you take a Smart Fortwo Electric Drive, add a disco-ball finish and then throw in Electriconic Rock group Apparatjik? You get the mirrored two-seater shown above, as well as a rather odd video featuring enough flashing lights to push epileptics into DEFCON 1.

The electric party-mobile is a one-off creation thought up by the Apparatjik crew. It's a music group comprised of Coldplay bassist Guy Berryman, A-Ha guitarist/keyboardist Magne Furuholmen, Mew lead singer Jonas Bjerre and producer Martin Terefe. The car will be used in a film called Pixel City. It also has a starring role in an Apparatjik music video, which can be seen after the jump. Just don't crash... that's a lot of mirrors ripe for a shattering.

Always surprisingly different: smart presents an electric two-seater in a glitzy 'disco-ball' look in Berlin.

This smart fortwo electric drive is completely covered in reflective glass tiles from the roof to the hub caps and the windows also feature a mirror finish. The one-off model was conceived by the experimental artist formation 'Apparatjik' to be used in a film titled 'Pixel City', realized for their current installation at Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin. The project is brought to a climax by two very unusual live performances on the 26th and 27th of March.

smart is the official main sponsor in this project by Apparatjik, consisting of world-famous musicians Magne Furuholmen of a-ha, Guy Berryman of Coldplay, Jonas Bjerre of Mew and sought-after music producer Martin Terefe. Their "Apparatjik Light Space Modular" features not only concerts but also an interactive installation which collects data to be turned into a piece of music. The deriving song will be performed by the prestigious Deutsches Kammerorchester and accompanied by a spectacular image show titled 'Apparat TV'. The projections will be streamed out of a six metre tall cube into the city through the museum's glass walls. Inside that cube is where Apparatjik will be performing live on 26 and 27 March. Tickets can be purchased over 01805/88 00 15, via www.apparatjik.com

During their stay in Berlin Apparatjik members Magne Furuholmen and Martin Terefe took the opportunity to discover the German capital in the Discoball smart. Impressions of their trip are documented in a smart filmlet which can be seen over the smart Youtube channel www.youtube.com/smart

      I don't mind the car, but I listen to a lot of this style of music, and those lyrics are horrifyingly awful, and almost make Black Eyed Peas sound talented. Also, the Hooah samples are cliché.

      I could go on, but this is an automotive site....

      This car needs a 7 foot tranny as it's driver.

      It's actually 7 years of bad luck for EACH mirror...

      Will there be a Smart for 3, or is this it. Should do well in Hollywood.

      it would be 7-years for EACH mirror broken... and insurance probably won't cover it!

      First smart car I've seen that actually looks good, now if they could hang it on a string and spin it, it would make a great disco ball.

      Having to drive a pregnant roller skate (shopping cart with a lid?) IS bad luck in itself.

      Disco sucks, and so does that car.

      Oh. My. Gawd. Chandler Bing!

      That was bloody awful!

      This car needs to turn into a disco inferno.
