MILTON KEYNES, UNITED KINGDOM – April 15, 2013: Smart is turning up the heat on its city car rivals with the launch of a stunning model.

The smart fortwo cityflame edition is destined to have motorists blazing a trail to smart retailers nationwide when it is launched in May, thanks to a combination of head-turning good looks and a superb specification.

This is a car that cannot fail to brighten the lives of owners as it is distinguished by vivid pearlescent flame yellow body panels that are anything but mellow.

Complementing the eye-catching exterior are a black tridion safety cell, grille surround and door mirror caps as well as exclusive 15” black-painted 3-double spoke alloy wheels. ‘cityflame’ logos in the mirror triangles reveal this smart’s identity, whilst BRABUS headlights with titanium-coloured background further enhance its striking appearance.

The red hot colour scheme continues inside the smart fortwo cityflame edition, where passengers can sit back and enjoy the ride in black fabric/leather-look seats incorporating flame yellow inlays and stitching. The leather-look dashboard and three-spoke leather sports steering wheel with shift paddles also feature flame yellow contrasts as does the specially-produced floor mats with ‘cityflame’ embroidered lettering.

Available as a coupé or cabrio and with a choice of 71 bhp (52 kW) mhd or 84 bhp (62 kW) petrol engines, the cityflame edition smart is packed with a wealth of standard equipment too, including air conditioning, softouch transmission, electric windows and the audio system navigation/ multimedia highline. The coupé features a panoramic roof and the cabrio is equipped with an electric soft top in black tritop fabric.

“smart special edition models have always proved popular amongst drivers who really do want to stand out from the motoring crowd and we expect this latest version to continue the trend,” said Gary Savage, Managing Director, Mercedes-Benz Cars. “With its sensational styling and myriad features, the smart fortwo cityflame edition is a real head-turner and is certain to add a huge splash of colour to the life of its owners.”
