The 2011 Smart Fortwo, despite all its trying, is a car that needs all the help it can get. True, a big part of the car's problem is that it just doesn't make very much sense for the American market. That said, it's underpowered, uninspiring to drive, terrifying on the highway, and not particularly efficient, given its size. It also features one of the worst transmissions in motoring.
Enter Vilner, a Bulgarian custom shop that has tried with some success to make the car just a little more appealing. Built for a Bulgarian businessman, the Vilner Smart Fortwo employs a design scheme the company has dubbed "square style."
Inside and outside the car gets a square motif, which translates nicely into a completely redone interior featuring quilted upholstery. Outside, the car gets loud, oversize orange wheels and serious amounts of chrome. While Vilner takes the styling of the Smart to a new, supercar-aping level, the go bits have been left alone. Despite the lack of power adders, Vilner's efforts have gone a long way to making the Fortwo a bit more appealing. Read the full press release and check out two videos after the jump.
If you think the modest city vehicle Smart ForTwo is too ordinary to attract attention, the new work of the Bulgarian Custom Studio Vilner will make you think otherwise.
The compact vehicle is fully changed both inside and outside, and it was created by order of a Bulgarian businessman, whose idea was to use the transformation as an advertising car. For the new vision of the car, a preliminary design project was developed, called Square Style, and the name comes from the square motives on the vehicle.
There is actually no visible part that has remained unchanged on the midget, and for the exterior design VILNER's guys have used orange foil with motives of seams, fully chromium-plated panels and orange soft for the wheel rims, mirrors and some other details.
Smart ForTwo's interior in completely transformed and makes you feel you are in an extravagant sport car. The seat upholsteries and the linings of the panel, ceiling, door panels and even the foot pads are all new, and the rings and some other elements are chromium-plated.
The steering-wheel on its part is totally changed and based on the old one a new ergonomic one is created, consistent with the requirements of client's comfort during driving, as well as with the fact that the vehicle will be used mainly in the city.
The idea of the exclusive Smart For Two is to make it really unique and to shine with its individuality in the city traffic.
