Crave UK got a look at the Smart Brabus Electric Drive, a modified version of the Smart ED prototype. This one's been given the once-over by German tuning company Brabus, which has painted it spearmint green and white, fitted a matching interior, and added some interesting new gadgets.

Pedestrians shouldn't be able to miss this car. We can't remember ever seeing a spearmint green paint job with a matte finish on any vehicle, anywhere in the world, ever.

Just in case they do miss you, this switch (top right) lets you toggle between noises. One sounds like a sci-fi dork's wet dream, while the other sounds like a Smart fortwo on steroids.

If you do happen to run over someone and they end up crashing through your windshield, they'll love the green and white interior.

The Smart Brabus ED features day-running LED lights. We're not sure how this affects the car's range, but it looks cool and makes it more visible.

We're feelin' the leather-bound gear knob. The buttons just ahead of it control the car's convertible roof, which can be operated while the vehicle is in motion.

The white alloy wheels are a smart touch.

The digital-analog instrument panel is the same as on the standard car, which is a shame as it looks slightly retro.

This F1-style rear diffuser doesn't add to the vehicle's performance, but it looks sweet.

This glass panel in the trunk lets you see straight through to the electric motor.
