Although the R designation no longer holds the promise of extra power and performance, it's still nice to see sport-oriented design elements make their way onto the hot C30 coupe
. Due out in Spring 2008, the limited-edition C30 R-Design (only 400 are planned) adds a number of styling enhancements including matte-silver exterior mirrors, four unique exterior colors and mouthier exhaust tips. Inside, swirled aluminum inlays, blue-faced instruments and R-embroidered cream and off-black seats complement its sport steering wheel, pedals and shift knob. Pricing has not been set but will likely parallel a loaded C30 2.0.
