Light the candles and spin some party records as the Smart brand is now all grown up, celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. From what started out as a study between watch company Swatch and Mercedes-Benz (Swatch Mercedes ART) to fulfill the gap for a small city car, the brand has revived under Geely's purveyorship and now has two all-electric models โ€“ the Malaysia-bound #1 and #3.

The occasion is livened by the Smart #3 25th Anniversary Edition, and like most special editions, it comes with its own set of unique touches in and out.
