Chocolate-themed car as ultimate Valentine gift from Smart

Car manufacturer Mercedes Benz unveiled last Wednesday at the International Fashion Fair in Tokyo a chocolate-themed version of its Smart car, just two weeks before St. Valentine’s Day.

Designed by a Japanese accessories company, Q-Pot, the car is brown and patterned like a bar of chocolate. The price for the chocolate-themed Smart car is $28,780, while the price for the standard version of the Smart car is $22,439.

It seems like the guy behind Q-Pot and designer of the limited-edition car, Tadaaki Wakamatsu, has some really sweet dreams about it.
