2008 Smart Fortwo: They Have a Hermes Edition?

November 14, 2008

I was telling Edmunds editor Michael Jordan about how our 2008 Smart Fortwo caused a motorist distracted by it to crash into a concrete pillar in our parking garage the other day when he told me about the new Hermes edition of the Fortwo. Immediately I Googled it. It's so...pretty!

The Hermes "Fortwo edition Toile" Smart Car, created to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Smart Fortwo, is swathed in sumptuous Hermes leather and is available in 10 fashionable colors. However, it costs about $48,564. And I think that's just due to its luxurious interior materials; there was no mention of performance mods.

At least our $13,590 is an eye-catching, accident-causing Red Metallic. I saw a black Fortwo this morning. Bo-ring!

PS: Regarding the Smart maintenance invoice mentioned earlier, apparently it's not itemized so we're currently working on getting a more detailed listing. Look for a future post on the matter.
