Smart Fortwo Cityflame

There's nothing cowardly about the yellow Smart Fortwo being introduced at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. Why the bright color? Daimler says it's in response to both trends in car colors and customer demand for more personalization on the city car's higher-end Passion trim level. The newest Smart edition has been christened Cityflame. It features eye-popping pearlescent flame yellow side body panels and black safety panels and roof and 15-inch black alloy wheels.

The interior repeats the yellow and black color scheme. There's yellow imitation leather inserts and stitching on black leather seats and yellow stitching on the black three-spoke faux leather steering wheel with paddle shifters. There also are special edition black and yellow floor mats embroidered with the word Cityflame.

Daimler is producing just 2,400 Smart Fortwo Cityflame vehicles, available in either coupe or cabrio. All have a five-speed automated manual transmission with a 70-horsepower, 1.0-liter, three-cylinder in-line turbo gas engine which produces 68 lb-ft of torque. Starting price is 14,490 euros ($19,300 US at today's exchange rates) for the coupe and 17,580 ($23,500) euros for the cabrio. Daimler has not announced whether the Smart Fortwo edition cityflame will be imported to North America, but we may learn when the big show starts tomorrow.

New special model smart fortwo edition cityflame: Short, yellow, cool
Stuttgart, Jan 10, 2013

Stuttgart. A splash of colour: with its bodypanels in flame yellow the new special model smart fortwo edition cityflame is a real head-turner. In contrast, the tridion safety cell and alloy wheels are painted in black. The contrast is continued in the interior: the exclusive black seats in leather optic have striking yellow imitation leather inserts and feature yellow stitching. The smart fortwo edition cityflame can be ordered now with prices starting at €14,490. The special model is available as a coupé and a cabrio and will reach dealers in April 2013.

The latest smart fortwo special model has been christened "edition cityflame". With this model smart is honing in on the latest colour trends whilst also meeting the wishes of many customers for even greater individualisation. The most striking exterior features are the bodypanels in an eye-catching pearlescent flame yellow finish (alternatively also available in black). The yellow paintwork has a particularly sporty and expressive effect in combination with the black tridion safety cell, the exclusive black-painted 3-double-spoke alloy wheels with wide tyres (175/55 R 15 at the front and 195/50 R 15 at the rear) and the black door mirror caps.

The colouring is continued in the interior: the seat cushions of the high-quality seats in black leather optic are framed by yellow imitation leather inserts and feature yellow stitching. The instrument panel in leather look is also enhanced by yellow stitching. Further features include a two-section knee pad in black/yellow leather look, a 3-spoke leather sports steering wheel with shift paddles and yellow stitching, and specially produced floor mats embroidered with the word "cityflame".

The model that is limited to 2400 vehicles is based on the passion equipment line, which means that it comes with the softouch automatic gear programme, electric windows, air conditioning with automatic temperature control and a transparent panoramic roof with sunblind, among other features.
