Flower Power Smart at Festival

Silvia Flower with her class winning flower-power Smart


We wonder what jungle juice Silvia Flower is on ? To turn up and decorate your car with a zillion bees, cuddly cuties, and foam flowers, takes some guts! Now factor in her near 70 age and you just know there’s buckets of joie de vivre bubbling up from within this cuddly pre-septuagenarian; you can’t help wondering if her house, garage and garden are similarly adorned.

YW: Go on then Silvia, we think we need an insight – fire away !

YW: Bonkers then, and a tiger in her tank…But maybe it’s all worth it if you come home with a first prize. What category did you win?

Reassuringly, she promises that she actually puts her bike on the bike rack, and decorates the car at the show. So maybe it takes special events such as the Smart Festival to let inhibitions dissolve and creativity rise to the surface. Bring on Smart-Fest 2010….!

We met for bacon butties at some un-godly hour down at Smart of Portsmouth. After a drivers briefing, which was basically “head north on the A3, keep to speed limits, and no balloons hanging out of cars”, we arranged to fix a camera on the roll bar of a demonstrator driven by Emma. Photo gear sorted and the queue for butties was dwindling, but already it was time to mount our chariots. No matter, we rush breakfast-less for some starting grid pix and hop aboard for the convoy to Mercedes World, where the 2009 Smart Festival is underway. 10-4 rubber ducky.

Fancy ordering a wild Smart this Autumn? Brabus has a new range of styling and customer options for you to order. There’s something special about Smarts: they appear to transcend normal car buying patterns, and instill a loyalty and pride beyond their price.
If you need evidence of this, come back here shortly when we’ll have a flowery report of our day at the 2009 Smart Festival. Smart used the occasion to launch it’s “Tailor Made” range of Brabus themed specials. These are not just trim upgrades, but full panel colour choices and interior finishes with themed options, such as the “Campbell Blue” shown here, celebrating the iconic blue of the land speed record cars built and tested at the Brooklands workshops right next to Mercedes World; venue of the Smart Festival. Choose your wheels and spoilers, (full screen) satnav, exterior downlighters, daylight running lights, you name it. You can even have a union jack embroidered in your leather seats to go with your German British car. Lastly spec your gear knob. These must be extra special, as someone swiped one off the green display car, right during the Festival !
