Ectomobile? Smart Fortwo in Glowing Green

That might be the reaction as Smart prepares to launch an eerily Ghostbusters glow-in-the-dark version of its current Fortwo city car. The new Smart Fortwo is poised for a launch in April.

The glow-in-the-dark Smart reflects its environment: Buildings and other parts of the landscape are reflected in the body panels. The car will go on exhibit March 8-11 at the Galerie Viaux in Berlin. No word on whether it will go up for sale, but Smart says pictures of the car will be sold, with the proceeds going to charity.

Smart says the little green goblin is the next-to-last Smart Fortwo from the current generation. The final vehicle to be produced will go to the Mercedes-Benz museum collection. Production of the new Smart Fortwo is already underway.
