The smallish German automaker, owned by Daimler AG, has recently announced the unveiling of the black and white special editions for the ForTwo and ForFour models in the United Kingdom.
The automaker has taken the wraps off what appear to be very subtle and rather unexciting limited-run models – and we had a hard time finding out what makes the pair special. The new ForTwo and ForFour black and white series have taken as the basis model the prime trim line. They boast the Urban Style and Premium packages and as such they have generous equipments – including design traits such as the wheel-arch extensions, 16-inch Y-spoke black wheels, or the chrome-plated exhaust system tailpipe. Inside the cabin the models come nicely equipped with brushed stainless steel sports pedals with rubberized studs and among the included equipment we also found rear parking assistance and a height adjustable driver’s seat. Both versions also pack a leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel, a leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel and the more practical ForFour will also pack rear privacy glass.
The white edition comes with a matching white tridion cell, body and front grille, and concurrently the black edition is… well, all black. If you have another 100 pounds to spare, you can have the black edition with a contrasting white tridion cell. The engine lineup remains the same: 1.0-liter naturally-aspirated with 71 hp or the turbocharged 0.9-liter from Renault boasting 90 hp, with both versions mated either to a regular five speed manual or a six speed automatic. Prices for the ForTwo start from 12,360 pounds and the ForFour will set you back at least £12,855 – with both versiosn reaching dealer showrooms before the end of next month.
