Smart Rescue Vehicle - LA Auto Show Design Challenge

Smart created a model that is just perfect for the Southern California beaches, the Smart Rescue Vehicle. The car is designed for the adventures and tasks that a lifeguard endures on a daily basis like first aid, beach patrol, safety and water rescues. The model can accommodate four passengers and the driver has his own place, he seats high in a personal water craft-style seating position. It features an 800 cc turbo Smart engine that is situated between the front and the rear foam seats and that can power the jet pump when in amphibious mode.

From Smart comes the ideal cruiser for crowded Southern California beaches. The Smart Rescue Vehicle is designed for the adventures and tasks that a lifeguard endures on a daily basis, such as first aid, beach patrol, safety and water rescues. The driver sits high in a personal water craft-styled seating position, and can accommodate four passengers. Its mid-engined 800cc turbo Smart engine sits between the front and rear foam seats and can do double duty by powering the jet pump when in amphibious mode.
