Drawing Submissions Leak To Reveal Smart Roadster Design

Emmanuel P January 4, 2011

With the New Year comes reports that Mercedes-Benz has trademarked a design for a smart roadster. The two-seat runabout is unmistakably a smart design and the drawings show a remarkably appealing vehicle that looks to be a hit if it is produced. Topless roadsters always evoke images of fun and spirited driving but of course, given the smart car’s current engines, the spirited part of the equation might not be up to the task.

The designs look to be a preview for the next generation of the smart fortwo line. Although the designs – courtesy of the patent office – are for a topless two-seater, it is not hard to imagine smart putting a roof on the preview and selling it as the replacement for the current fortwo. The Tridion safety cell is still in place and the overall shape evokes smart designs but a lot of detail work has been done to make the car look new.

However, all the information at the moment comes from the pictures that have made it to the Internet. There is nothing yet on the mechanicals or other detail and so the public will have to wait and see what other information filters through over time.

  1. I’m really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues? A small number of my blog visitors have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?
