It won't be long before the all-new Smart Fortwo arrives in showrooms around the world, and that includes the US market. But before it does, Daimler has rolled in to the Detroit Auto Show this year with this special edition of the outgoing model.

Called the Flashlight edition, the special Smart is done up with an orange frame and either white or black body panels. The grille is finished in black, as are the split-spoke wheels, but their hubs and the mirror caps are in orange to match the frame. Inside it's all black leather with tone-on-tone black fabric inserts and contrasting orange trim.

The special edition is based on the Passion trim level with the Cabrio roof. It also comes bundled with a whole mess of otherwise optional equipment at a substantial savings, and will be available in markets around the world with either the 71-horsepower atmospheric engine, the 84-horse turbo or the electric drive powertrain.

smart fortwo edition flashlight: Spring is in the air
Detroit/Stuttgart, Jan 12, 2015

Detroit/Stuttgart. A colourful smart cabrio special model is heralding the approach of spring: the exclusive smart fortwo edition flashlight can be ordered from January 2015. The limited special model is available in Europe as a cabrio with a petrol engine or electric drive. It will reach the first customers in April 2015.

The bodypanels of the edition flashlight come in the colour matt crystal white, exclusively reserved for this model, or alternatively in deep black. By contrast, the tridion safety cell always comes in lava orange, as do the door mirror caps. Further distinctive features of this model are the black radiator grille, black alloy wheels in a 3-twin-spoke design with lava orange hub covers providing striking accents, H7 projection headlamps with a titanium-coloured background and the edition logo in the mirror triangle[1].

The premium, sporty feel continues in the interior. All edition flashlight models come with seats in black leather look with black fabric inserts on the seat backrests, orange stitching and a contrasting orange stripe that is also found on the kneepad. The 3-spoke leather sports steering wheel features orange stitching, as does the dashboard. The interior is rounded off by exclusive "edition flashlight" floor mats. The Audio-System basic is already on board as a standard feature. It comprises an RDS radio with USB and AUX ports for MP3 or CD player, two integrated loudspeakers and an additional drawer below the operating unit.

As the special model is based on the passion equipment line, softouch automatic gearshift programme comes as standard. The special model's exclusive equipment package offers customers a saving of up to 44 percent. Prices for the edition flashlight start at €17,580.

The smart fortwo edition flashlight will be making its début at the Detroit Motor Show as the special model will be going on sale worldwide. Configuration and equipment may vary in different countries.
