We know you’re all waiting for news of the second generation Smart model, which is set to launch at the Paris Auto Show in September by the way. But it looks like you have to wait a little while longer. In the meantime, Smart decided to launch something to keep you preoccupied—the Smart Limited Silver Edition, which is based on the Passion version with a little bit more, worth around 2,000 euros, thrown into the package for a price tag of 12,990 euros.
You’ll find traces of Brabus styling all over the Spec-Ed which is powered by an environmentally-safe micro hybrid drive, or MHD, engine that’s capable of 71 horsepower. Not much but hey, it’ll take you around town in acceptable comfort. The MHD incorporates a start-stop system that shuts your engine off when resting at full stop, and then turns it on upon depressing either the throttle or clutch pedals. The system effectively cuts down fuel consumption and, thus, carbon dioxide emissions.
The Spec-Ed is going to be offered in both stylish silver or gray metallic finishes. Inside it is Smart’s Radio 9 with an MP3 and CD player, a lockable glove box,and Smartl’s iPhone drive kit, otherwise known as the Smart Bluetooth headset.
We’ll let your eyes and our photos do the talking from this point onward.
