    2000 Mercury Cougar Special Edition

    I just bought a 2000 Cougar Special Edition, but I have a few questions. Every one I find online is yellow in color and mine is a dark red which was the original color. I also can't find a list of the options that this added to the car. Also, how much does this increase the value if at all. It is just weird that I can't find any other cars like mine, and I was trying to figure out why. If needed I can post some pics in a few days. Thanks in advance.

    My best guess is that it's a Dealer Special Edition. I've read that some dealers made their own Special Editions, but have nothing to back myself up.

    There's a Laser Red one just like that in my condo's lot. It has the same spoiler that the C2s have (don't remember the name), but otherwise looks like a standard 1999/2000 Laser Red, except for the "Special Edition" badging. There may be other differences - I haven't gotten close enough to it (and I think I scared the female owner) to see interior differences.
    1999 Cougar, Laser Red, 3.0L V6, MTX (a lot more fun)
    2014 Ram 2500 Big Horn 6.7L Diesel (Towzilla)
    2012 Honda Accord V6, ATX (daily)

    That sounds about right. It is pretty optioned out, and has the 6 disc cd changer that I don't see offered on the 2000 model. I do like the spoiler better. Thanks for your help.

    The 2000 Special Edition came in Zinc Yellow (only available on '00 SEs and '01 ZNs), Laser Red, Black and Silver Frost. What differentiates the SE from regular 2000 Cougars is mostly little things:
    SE badging
    SE floormats
    Visteon spoiler
    CD6 in-dash changer
    Color keyed center caps on the wheels (except silver since the wheels are already silver)
    A Cougar head symbol in the middle of the horizontal stripes at the top of the back window
    Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

    Some dealers optioned the SE with a factory Razzi kit, as well, at least in California.
