Release) Carbon Fiber, Racing Looks and Power: The
BRABUS ULTIMATE R Based on the smart fortwo
Carbon fiber, racing looks and power: Thatís the BRABUS (
motto for the special model BRABUS ULTIMATE R based on the smart
fortwo. Its three-cylinder turbocharged engine produces 112 hp (110
bhp) / 82.4 kW and contributes to the ultimate city sports carís
agility as does its sports suspension with high-performance tires up
to size 235/30 R 18 on the rear axle. The racing-look exterior of
the car features a special Ďgun metalí paint job and carbon fiber
components. Sport seats upholstered with Alcantara provide firm
support for driver and passenger.
The ULTIMATE R delivers the kind of performance that its racing
looks promise: The tuned smart engine produces 112 hp (110 bhp) /
82.4 kW at 5,750 rpm. Just as impressive is the peak torque of 150
Nm (111 lb-ft), available on a plateau between 3,300 and 3,900 rpm.
Shift times of the transmission in the BRABUS special model are
shorter than in the production car. Gears can be shifted either
automatically or with Formula One-type shift paddles on the
ergonomically shaped BRABUS sport steering wheel with a diameter of
just 32 centimeters (12.6 inches).
The performance figures of the little speedster promise tons of
driving fun: The ULTIMATE R zooms from rest to 60 km/h (37 mph) in
just 3.9 seconds and reaches 100 km/h (62 mph) after just 9.5
seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 170 km/h (106 mph).
The stainless-steel BRABUS sport exhaust system with dual cast
aluminum tailpipe optimizes power yield and gives the two-seater a
very sporty exhaust note.
The appearance of the two-seater can best be described as
unadulterated racing looks. Clear-coated carbon-fiber is a striking
complement to the special metallic paint. The high-tech material can
be found on the lower part of the B-pillar, the front spoiler with
its additional flaps, on the rocker panels and the rear diffuser.
Wider fenders offer space for a tire/wheel combination that must be
considered generously dimensioned for a smart. Black-painted BRABUS
Monoblock VI double-spoke wheels are mounted on the front axle in
size 7Jx18 with size 205/35 R 18 high-performance tires. On the rear
axle size 8.5Jx18 wheels with size 235/30 R 18 tires provide maximum
The height-adjustable BRABUS coil-over sport suspension lowers the
ride height of the ULTIMATE R by some 30 millimeters (1.2 inches).
Firmer gas-pressure shocks further contribute to the carís agile
handling with great safety reserves.
The interior of the high-end subcompact car also exudes racing
ambiance. Strongly contoured sport seats upholstered with nonslip
grey Alcantara provide plenty lateral support during fast cornering.
The beautiful material is delicately finished by the BRABUS
upholsterers with shining red seams and can also be found on the
dashboard and both doors.
Carbon fiber applications add further sporty highlights. The
high-tech material is used on the speedometer, tach, clock,
instrument bezels, turn-signal stalk and door handles.
Stainless-steel pedals with rubber pads and aluminum shifter and
emergency brake lever are the perfect complements.
A climate control system, radio and navigation system are also part
of the two-seaterís standard equipment. The ULTIMATE R is available
as a coupe and as a convertible.
