The car came with a choice of six body panel colours, coupled with a black tridion safety cell.  The Glance Grey one pictured above has an optioned silver tridion - at the time a £175 extra.

A matt 2-piece removable roof is fitted as standard to the light, doing away with the electric soft top.  The electric soft-top roof was available as an extra for £695.

“Light” logos might be fitted underneath the side repeaters.

The interior seats were of the Fortwo design on roadster seat frames (and have slightly less side support than a standard roadster ones).

15” steel rims with black centre caps as standard.

Air conditioning cannot be fitted to this car, there might be some that had it as a factory supplied extra (£595).  The Smart radio/CD was an optional extra.

Black dial faces were as standard on the Light.

Standard price of a Roadster Light (the 400 rhd 82 bhp models) was £11995, although many were sold at under £9k new when discounted in 2005.
