Spring is coming (at least for some of us!), so what can be better than driving in the warm breeze with hair in the wind? And how there’s a crisis in the world, fuel economy is one big problem. Smart has the solution for us: the limited edition Fortwo Edition Limited Three. It will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show and will go on sale in Europe at a price of €15,470 as a coupe and €18,510 as a cabrio.
The Fortwo Edition Limited Three comes with melon green metallic paintwork and extensive equipment: 15 inch alloy wheels in a sporty six-spoke design fitted with tyres measuring 175/55 R15 at the front and 195/50 R15 at the rear are a further eye-catching feature. The exterior look is rounded off by aluminium-effect "limited three" logos in the mirror triangle.
The special series of the new smart fortwo also places a focus on "green" when it comes to the environment thanks to micro hybrid drive (mhd) technology as standard with an intelligent and user-friendly automatic start/stop system. The control electronics shut down the 71 hp engine as soon as the driver brakes and the vehicle’s speed falls below 8 km/h - for example when approaching traffic lights. The engine starts again in the fraction of a second when the driver releases the brake pedal.
Press release after the jump.
