DS 3 Dark Light Limited Edition Mixes Day and Night
DS 3 Dark Light Limited Edition is not a HIM-dedicated vehicle. If you are fan of the band, then you should know what I am talking about. For those who aren't familiar, HIM are a very cool band from Finland, dedicatedly playing the so called "love metal" for more than 24 years. They became extremely popular in the US with their fifth album, called ‘Dark Light', and are also best friends with the professional skateboarder Bam Margera. Being also an MTV Jackass star, he was the person who made the ‘Heartagram' symbol popular, which by the way is originally HIM's logo.
Enough off-topic. The here-presented limited edition of DS 3 will be produced in only 300 examples. It will be strictly distributed only in the UK.
Characteristic Design for the Exterior
If you are wondering why this DS 3 is called ‘Dark Light', here's the answer. The car is painted in Perla Nera Black metallic, but features one-off clear-backed metallic vinyl wrap along each side. The vinyl gives the feel that the black-as-the-night vehicle is slightly illuminated by the rising sunlight.
This particular limited edition DS 3 is based on the DStyle Nav trim level. This means that it features eMyWay satellite navigation as standard. It also adds signature DS LED Vision headlights, chrome door mirrors and ‘Dark Light' badging on the front wings and tailgate. To make it even cooler, the designers made sure that it runs on 17-inch black diamond-cut Bellone alloys.
The cabin is beautifully styled with Black leather pack, ‘Dark Light' dashboard badging, aluminum sports pedals and premium carpet mats. The interior is also adorned by sports seats and front arm rest as well as by convenience pack, which adds auto lights and wipers, electrically-folding door mirrors, auto-dimming rear view mirror.
Under the hood of the DS 3 Dark Light is the efficient PureTech 110 S&S petrol engine. It is connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission and features stop-start function useful for the urban environment.
DS 3 Dark Light is currently on sale with a starting price of £20,795 OTR.
