smart has commemorated 10 years of UK sales with an exclusive new model – the smart fortwo gb-10 edition. Finished in striking silver metallic with a special red design feature on the tridion safety cell, the gb-10 edition is a fitting tribute to the brand’s shining performance since its UK launch in October 2000.
Due for display at this year’s smart festival on Saturday 4th September, the gb-10 edition will add another dimension to the event’s celebrations of 10 years of smart in the UK. Just 100 examples of the gb-10 edition will be produced, all featuring unique ‘1 of 100’ badging. With the mix of models consisting of 50 mhd coupé, 10 mhd cabrio, 30 cdi coupé and 10 cdi cabrio, all versions of the gb-10 edition will deliver the flexible performance and outstanding environmental compatibility that smart has become renowned for.
The gb-10 edition adds even more substance to the brand’s reputation as a modern design statement and features an unprecedented level of equipment, style and premium quality rarely seen in its sector. Both the exterior and interior of the gb-10 edition highlight the exclusive quality of work available from the smart-BRABUS customisation division. Complementing the stunning silver finish of the gb-10 edition are BRABUS Monoblock VII 15-inch alloys, BRABUS LED daytime running lights and BRABUS LED third brake light, while the Premium interior package has been enhanced with the additions of the ‘gb-10’ logo on the BRABUS gear knob and handbrake.
The unique ‘gb-10’ logo also features in the headrests of the Rosso red, heated leather seats and the use of leather extends to the door panels, kneepad and handbrake gaitor. The upper dashboard is finished in contrasting black alcantara and the instrument surrounds in silver, the latter complementing the seats’ eye-catching silver stitching. Standard equipment includes the impressive Pioneer AVIC-F910BT audio and navigation system, air conditioning, electric windows and Panoramic roof.
Gary Savage, Managing Director, Mercedes-Benz Cars said: “The gb-10 edition is the perfect way to celebrate a decade of smart in the UK, not only being one of the most distinctive and exclusive fortwo models ever produced but also capturing the essence of what the iconic brand represents. More than 75,000 smarts have been sold in the UK and the gb-10 edition is a clear indication of how the brand has evolved and continues to do so. Its luxurious specification will attract an even greater variety of customers and once again highlights the car’s reputation for trendsetting, forward-thinking style.”
The smart fortwo gb-10 edition costs from £10,695 on-the-road.
