Smart Edition Limited Two

2008 Smart Edition Limited Two
Daimler Press Release

2008 Smart Edition Limited TwoAt the 78th International Motor Show in Geneva a further special edition of the successful Smart Fortwo is celebrating its world premiere. The "Edition Limited Two" will be produced as a limited series of 2000 vehicles and is characterised by exclusive colouring and a high quality mix of materials - on both the outside and the inside. In addition, smart is presenting three further current variants of the unique two-seater: thanks to an innovative start/stop function, the Smart Fortwo micro hybrid drive (mhd) consumes 8 percent less fuel on average (NEDC), greatly reducing CO2 emissions. The Smart Fortwo CDI uses state-of-the-art common rail direct injection to achieve exemplary consumption figures. With average consumption of 3.3 litres per 100 kilometres (NEDC) and CO2 emissions of just 88 grams per kilometre it has the lowest standard consumption worldwide, earning it the title "CO2 champion" amongst series production cars. The Smart Fortwo BRABUS is a particularly powerful and sporty model and is also available as the further upgraded BRABUS Xclusive.

The "Edition Limited Two" is guaranteed to turn heads thanks to its eye-catching appearance. The interior features clear lines and fine details. Elegant cognac brown leather with a two-tone contrasting seam sets the tone here and gives it a personal note. From the heated leather seats, interior door trim, 3-spoke leather sports steering wheel with paddle gearshift to the leather gear knob and the leather-trimmed floor mats – everything appears in a warm brown tone. Additional matt silver highlights on the speedometer, cockpit clock, rev counter and steering wheel provide a harmonious contrast and round off the modern character. In this way, the style of the Smart Fortwo is maintained and developed in impressive fashion.

2008 Smart Edition Limited TwoA highlight of the exterior is the special "light blue metallic" finish that was created especially for the "Edition Limited Two". The paintwork shimmers with silver-beige nuances depending on the prevailing light conditions. The clear silver of the tridion safety cell sets off the panelling to perfection. And the 6-spoke alloy wheels with wide tyres demonstrate that elegance and dynamism are not mutually exclusive.

The new edition is available as a coupe and a cabriolet and is based on the "Passion" equipment variant. Among other things it comes with the automatic softouch gear mode, electric windows, air conditioning with automatic temperature control, a dust and pollen filter and a panoramic roof with sunblind on the coupe. In addition, the standard equipment of the "Edition Limited Two" includes dashboard instruments and the radio 9. Electric power steering, a lockable glove compartment, the smart sound system with five high-quality loudspeakers and the Smart MP3 interface are available on request as optional equipment.

The two-seater is powered by a 52 kW (71 hp) petrol engine in combination with automated 5-speed transmission and an automatic gear programme which also allows manual gear shifting if desired.
