Pics Aplenty: Smart ForSpeed tries its best to look speedy

Smart ForSpeed Concept – Click above for high-res image gallery

Daimler has been so kind as to serve up a heaping helping of Smart ForSpeed photos ahead of the vehicle's unveil at this year's Geneva Motor Show. As you may recall, the concept packs a 41-horsepower electric motor that can whisk this topless wonder all the way to 37 miles per hour in around 5.5 seconds. For reference, those numbers make up a two second improvement over the standard, production version ForTwo ED. We aren't into denying the fact that two seconds is no small gap, but we wouldn't exactly go around calling this contraption quick, either.

The ForSpeed will hit the stage next month without a top, though Smart has been kind enough to include a toneau cover should the skies open up while you're waiting to get to the vehicle's top speed of 75 mph. The good news is that the ForSpeed carries a range of around 85 miles and can be quick charged to 80 percent of capacity in about 45 minutes.
