Smart 341 Parkour Concept – 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show Design Challenge
The 341 Parkour Concept from Smart is touted as a reporter’s best friend.
It belongs to budding investigative reporter Annie and features several elements designed to enable her to take pictures from the best possible locations.
The large greenhouse gives Annie 360 degrees of visibility while travelling through the inner city. The wheels are retractable and contain impulse pads and vacuum cups. The hexagon skin around the wheelhouse is adjustable to release the wheels.
The smaller than usual Smart concept also has different modes: a typical drive mode, a fly mode that allows the vehicle to hover far above the streets, and a climb mode that allows the vehicle to run up the walls of skyscrapers.
