Those in the UK can now get the latest limited edition from smart – the fortwo nightorange edition – which has a starting price of £9,995. This small striking vehicle was launched last January and had made its world public debut at the Geneva Auto Show in early March. Only 235 units will be available on the British market, in both coupe and cabrio form. Buyers can choose from either a 71 bhp micro hybrid drive or 84 bhp turbo petrol engine.
The vehicle features vivid orange paintwork, contrasting black three-double-spoke 15-inch alloy wheels, tridion safety cell, door mirror caps and radiator grille, headlamps with titanium-colored inserts and nightorange badging on the door mirror triangles.
To spice up the interior, the car gets soft black nappa leather and fabric seats, orange stitching and sport stripes on the seats and dashboard.
The three-spoke steering wheel and the gear knob for the softouch five-speed automatic transmission have a black nappa leather finish. Meanwhile, the dashboard, door trims, cockpit clock and rev counter are in elegant matt black. The fortwo nightorange edition also features luxurious velour floor mats, which have the nightorange logo.
In autumn 2010, the latest generation smart fortwo will be launched with a new interior, an improved exterior, and more environmentally friendly engines. The color choices available for the exterior now come with a stylish matte finish. In addition, the tridion safety cell is available in white as an option while the color options for the cabrio soft top now include new colors, blue and red. New alloy wheels and LED daytime driving lights come with customization options.
The interior has a high quality ambience, thanks to the fresh fabrics, colors and new cockpit design. The entertainment and communication systems include cutting edge technology. The vehicles are equipped with state-of-the-art petrol engines, further improved with 45 and 52kW versions, discharging below 100 g/km CO2, a new standard. The arrival of the new generation will be celebrated by Smart by means of a limited edition welcome model, which boasts of high quality equipment. The new generation, ground-breaking two-seater smart fortwo is more eye-catching and environmentally friendly.
Smart Managing Director Marc Langenbrinck says that they continue to exert efforts so they can further enhance their smart models and make them more desirable in all aspects. The latest generation smart fortwo is appropriate for our times. It is stylish and attractive. It also takes pride in its high quality materials and plays close attention to details, as well as provides more comfort and improved functionality.
It is important to consider that most smart drivers think in an unconventional way and always try to look for available options. The new generation smart fortwo, together with its variety of engines and customization options, is certainly capable of meeting their needs and preferences. There is a wider variety of colors available for the new generation smart fortwo to give it a more eye-catching look. Now, there are seven exterior colors that customers can choose from compared to the previous six, with an included trendy matte finish.
Aside from the new matte light green, there is a light blue metallic color to take the place of the former blue metallic. Furthermore, the front spoiler, rear apron and side skirts can be painted in the same body color upon request. The fuel filler cap can also be painted in the similar color later on. The smart fortwo has more choices of colors as smart further provides two new cabrio soft top colors in blue and red as well as the tridion safety cell color in brilliant white.
To complement the white tridion safety cell, the radiator grille and door mirror surrounds are also painted white. These modern color combination and possibilities offer an entirely new face for smart fortwo. The LED daytime driving lights that come as an option are a stunning addition. There are also three new 15-inch alloy wheels that offer fresh, new ideas in terms of styling and design.
