Smart Cars Could be Used as a Private Theater

Certain concept cars stand out because of some slick green technology that could someday make it into actual production. Small car brand Smart (Daimler's microcar brand) is unveiling an electric car concept. Designed as a city car for a hip, urban market, the Smart Forstars gets its name from its all-glass roof, which allows for a bit of stargazing. It also serves as a bit of wordplay regarding the video projector mounted in its front bonnet that can be used to display stars of the Hollywood variety. The projector is designed to be operated by a smartphone and is linked to a high-quality sound system with speakers in ventilation openings behind the doors.

This Smart Forstar is an electric car that seems to have developed a particularly serious identity disorder. On the one hand, it’s an electric SUC (Sports Utility Coupé). On the other hand, it’s a mobile video projector for staging impromptu cinema outings on any handy blank wall.

Top speed is reported as 130 kph (80 mph). By using Michelin tires measuring 245/35 ZR 21. Four wheels, 3-spoke design are attractive.

Compared to the Smart ForTwo, the Smart Forstars concept is thirty inches longer and almost six inches wider. The exterior styling of the Forstars concept is instantly recognizable as a member of the Smart family, but according to Smart many of the striking design elements on the concept will be part of the automaker’s future design language.
