With no new models for the fickle market for the past few years, smart’s parent company Daimler has been trying to keep the interest level for the fortwo up by releasing special editions instead. Daimler needs to pursue this strategy as the smart division has an important role in Daimler’s future.
The current year is no exception and after introducing the lightshine special edition to the UK market this month, Daimler is next releasing a new special edition called the smart fortwo nightorange.
The nightorange will be adorned with an exclusive orange-metallic finish combined with a black tridion safety cell and 3-double-spoke alloy wheels of the same color. Additionally, this smart special edition has black painted headlamp trim, black mirror caps and nightorange logos in the mirror triangles. For the interior motif, the exterior theme is continued with black leather and fabric seats, with an orange sport stripe in the middle, pearl black instrument trim, instrument panel and door trim. A nappa leather 3-spoke steering wheel completes the look.
As is usual with all smart fortwos, there is no change to the powertrain or the car’s performance.
Having the typically standard 71, 84 gasoline and 54 hp diesel engines, there will be no new figures to brag about still.
Coupe and cabrio versions are available for this latest special edition, with prices ranging from 14,000-18,500 euros, depending on the powertrain.
