Smart has just announced yesterday, the new Smart fortwo pearlgrey. this limited special model sports an exclusive graphite metallic paint job accented by a silver tridion safety cell and silver three-double spoke wheels with 175/55 R15 tires up front and 195/50 R15 at the rear. though, i would never understand why Smart chose this combination for a front wheel driven vehicle but it certainly give the car a sportier edge. continuing the exterior aesthetic are the graphite metallic painted mirror caps and radiator grille, and for the extra awareness that this is the pearlgrey edition, there are the pearlgrey logos on the mirror triangles.
aesthetic improvement carries on into the interior with exclusive mix of leather and fabric package in crystal grey. black imitation leather (i prefer to called it synthetic leather) with contrasting light grey stitching adorns the dash and the knee pad area, while matt silver contrasting bits can be found around the rest of the interior. the pearlgrey edition is based on the passion equipment line which has the softouch automatic gear program, electric windows, air conditioning with automatic temperature control (also known as climate control) and transparent panoramic roof with sunblind as standard. the Smart fortwo pearlgrey is available in the coupé and the cabriolet form.
engine options include the 71 horsepower (52 kW) 1.0-liter micro hybrid drive petrol engine or the 84 horsepower (62 kW) 1.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine. Smart Europe is taking orders for the Smart fortwo pearlgrey as we speak and the car is expected to reach the dealers this November. prices of the limited special model starts from €14,490 (about US$20,880). check out a few more look and the official press release after the break.[toggle title_open=”Hide Press Release” title_closed=”Show Press Release” hide=”yes” border=”yes” style=”default”]Limited special model from smart
