smart fortwo sees red in Paris
Posted Aug 30th 2006 1:59PM by Alex Nunez
The current smart fortwo is going to go out in a flash of color as the "edition red" makes its debut at the Paris Motor Show. The monochrome edition red is doused in copious amounts of "intensive red" paint and similarly, the interior is also touched up in the firey tone. As for the rest of the tiny passenger cabin, it gets the luxo-treatment with fancy-stitch leather and Alcantara surface coverings, aluminum pedals, an aftermarket-looking shifter, A/C, and an MP3-ready audio system. Motivation comes from the BRABUS smart's more robust 75-horsepower engine and accordingly, the body is decked out with the tuner's familiar 16" rims, a muscular front spoiler, and a sport muffler. The edition red will be available in coupe and cabrio bodystyles, both of which will be visible from outer space thanks to smart's arresting paint scheme.
The next-generation fortwo will debut in the spring and smart tells us that what's left of the current generation model is practically sold out.
