Car paintwork colours get christened with some strange names, but Smart has trumped everyone by introducing a Fortwo featuring 'melon green' metallic paint at the Geneva motor show.

Let's hope Smart's melons are in better condition than the squashy ones down my local supermarket.

Anyhow, this is the Smart Fortwo Edition Limited Three, which is an awful lot of numbers for such a small car.

Changes from the standard model include the aforementioned melon green metallic paintwork, along matching interior trim and a unique fabric design for the seats with shades of brown.

The new edition, which is available as a coupe and a cabriolet, is based on the Passion trim level of the Fortwo. Power comes from a 70bhp engine that has engine stop-start.

Additional equipment includes 15-inch alloy wheels, electric windows, air-conditioning and - for the coupe - a panoramic roof with sunblind.

The car will go on sale in the UK in May, with prices with prices starting from £9950 for the Coupe and £11,900 for the Cabriolet.

Why we didn't like it What a silly name. What a silly colour scheme. What a silly person you must be to pay a premium over a standard model to buy one of these.
