Though small in size, Smart makes a big statement with its special-edition cars. As things start to heat up this summer, Smart will stay cool with a new Fortwo model called the Iceshine Edition that’s available this month for pre-ordering in Europe.
The Iceshine Edition Smart Fortwo will be available in two colours when it arrives at dealers in October: azure blue and white. It also gets new white 3-double-spoke alloy wheels with wide tyres in size 175/55 R 15 (front) and 195/50 R 15 (rear). LED lights and special logos are other signs of this car’s “specialness”.
Inside the cabin these models come with exclusive leather-effect seats with a white fabric insert on the backrest and white stitching, plus a 3-spoke leather sports steering wheel with shift paddles and also, white stitching. Unique floor mats are also included, and so is a standard audio system with RDS radio with USB and AUX ports for your MP3 or CD player.
Other optional extras include black leather-effect instrument panel, BRABUS 3-spoke sports steering wheel with steering wheel gearshift and smart cradle for the iPhone® 3/3GS and 4/4S. But these options will just bump up the price even more.
Changes are only cosmetic as the diminutive car’s 70-hp 1.0-litre I-3 powertrain remains untouched. The Iceshine Edition is limited to 1,800 units worldwide.
