Purple interior?

#1 Post by Scrumpy » Fri Feb 28, 2014 11:18 am

This is but 7 miles down the road from me - a 200 registered in 2000 but with plum and leather interior. Was this standard, a special edition, an after-thought crossover with the on-sale 25, or is it someone's creation? Never seen one.....

Ive seen this interior in a few 200s so Its not a one off. Not sure if it came with a specific model or it was an extra cost option.

That is the 'iS' special edition: the route to a sporty 200 without buying the 'Vi' with the VVC engine. A 1.8 version of the 'iS' was available, too.

That interior looks especially nice when combined with 'Amaranth' pearlescent paint and with white, too.
