Stillborn Smart "ForMore" SUV Concept Found In ShedS

Ever wondered what the SmartUV would have looked like? Well here it is. Luckily, Smart chose to stick with making crappy small cars instead of crappy slightly bigger ones.

These pictured were snapped inside a secret Mercedes storage facility somewhere in Germany. It's the Smart ForMore concept scheduled to debut at the 2005 Frankfurt Auto Show, but its premiere was canceled when Mercedes called a halt to the entire SmartUV program. We'd love to see what else might be hidden in there.

With styling clearly influenced by the Smart ForFour and with only minor concept car details like the hand-carved tires and iPod interior, this vehicle was clearly close to production. It's rumored that the ForMore was based on the Mercedes GLK. We guess this is as clear an indication as to how close we got to the SUVpocalypse as we'll ever get. [Caradisiac]
