Smart will launch a limited edition fortwo lightshine model in the United Kingdom, that is limited to just 86 units, and priced at £11,405 on-the-road.
Based on the passion coupé model, the lightshine edition features light green matt body panels, LED daytime running lights, colour coded headlamp bezels, ‘lightshine’ badging and the new pulse 3-double spoke alloys in an exclusive paint finish.
The interior of the lightshine edition benefits from new upper dashboard and glovebox designs along with improved materials and new fabric patterns. The special edition also features the passion model’s high line navigation system with a new larger touch screen, CD/DVD/SD functionality and iPod interface, while interior finishing touches include a sporty 3-spoke steering wheel with paddleshift gear change and floor mats with the ‘lightshine’ logo.
The smart fortwo lightshine edition is powered by a 54bhp cdi engine, that emits just 86g/km CO2 – the lowest figure in the world for a combustion engine car.
“The smart fortwo lightshine edition epitomises the values of smart, the model offering an unrivalled fusion of eye-catching style, comfort and environmental compatibility in a fun-to-own and drive package,” said Gary Savage, Managing Director, Mercedes-Benz Cars.
