Mercedes-Benz went all out designing the Smart 341 Parkour for the 2011 LA Auto Show Design Challenge. The Silver Arrow created a compact two-seater that could both climb on walls and fly. The hard work and imaginative design paid off as the Smart 341 Parkour managed to take first place in the annual contest.
The LA Auto Show Design Challenge is themed around building the car of the future with a unique twist. The twist in this year's challenge was that the car had to be accompanied by a Hollywood-worthy plot line. The Smart 341 Parkour was the vehicle for a go-getter reporter struggling to make a name for herself. A flying car that can also climb walls should certainly be enough to propel any reporter to a Pulitzer Prize.
