Back in 2006, smart announced the "edition limited one" of the fortwo, and with a name like that it wasn't too surprising when the "special edition - limited two" was announced this past March in Geneva. The limited two is now almost ready for sale, and will be available in the UK on September 1 for £9,575 (coupé) or £11,525 (cabrio). The limited two is a lot like the fortwo passion with 71bhp but will also offer a chameleon-like "unique paint finish, which varies between different shades according to the light" while getting 59 mpg (U.S.). Other luxury additions include leather heated seats and velour floor mats. Velour floor mats? If that sounds good to you, better act now, because smart says the limited two will be, well, limited.

A rev counter and clock are also added.
As well as limited two badging and six-spoke alloy wheels with 15-inch tyres, the newcomer is distinguished by its special light blue metallic paint finish which displays subtle silver and beige tones depending on the prevailing light conditions.
Owners can also choose to enhance their car's impressive specification with a trio of optional extras – electric power steering, a lockable glove compartment or a smart sound system.
Prospective buyers will need to act quickly to get their hands on smart's new edition limited two as numbers of this special edition will be limited in order to retain its exclusivity.
