smart fortwo lightshine special edition

The 2011 model year will feature a series of exciting special models, and the smart fortwo lightshine special edition is first of these limited production offerings.

The Lightshine edition comes in the passion coupe or passion cabriolet models and will be available in either green matte or light blue metallic exterior colors with a sliver tridion safety cell.

The highlight of the special model is equipment features that are otherwise only available as options. These include the high performance audio system navigation/multimedia including navigation and Bluetooth hands-free system, striking LED BRABUS daytime running lamps and dashboard instruments.

The special model boasts all of the new enhancements with the 2011 model including a new fabric-covered instrument panel with the new dial face, new upholstery colors in design beige or design black, fuel filler cap finished in the body color and net pockets on the side bolsters between the seats.

And finally, equipment on the lightshine includes 15"BRABUS monoblock VII alloy wheels and the "lightshine" badge on the vehicle’s body. The vehicle further upgrades the interior with accent parts in chrome matte and velour floor mats featuring a scripted "lightshine" stitched along the side.

Must have read the following too quickly...
Quote:
The 2011 model offers a new standard alloy wheel with a 12-spoke design on the passion coupe and passion cabriolet. Both passion models also offer a new optional 6-spoke alloy wheel with wider P175/55 tires in the front at P195/50 tires in the rear. The pure comes standard with steel wheels featuring smart wheel covers. All wheels measure 15 inches.

Read that part. I know all the smarts I have owned have had 15" all the way around, no change. I really thought I missed something and they did the same width all around. All is well.

Knew all of this before the release of this info...

I see the 8% fuel improvement seen in the new European models didn't translate back to us, again...

That's how I found this...It's my homepage

I kinda liked the older design better, but I suppose this one was adapted because the Wheego, Car2Go, and smart safety thing couldn't be removed?
