(from Brabus Press
Release) The smart fortwo BRABUS: Powerful and agile
What started in 2002 as a joint venture between smart and BRABUS has
developed over the years into extremely successful cooperation in
the field of vehicle tuning. The great popularity of the BRABUS
variants of the smart shows the increasing customer interest in
individualised cars. Together with BRABUS, smart will continue to
round off its model range with even more exclusive models. BRABUS
variants boast both exclusive equipment and greater engine power.
The smart fortwo BRABUS places the primary focus on sportiness. Its
three-cylinder one litre petrol engine delivers 72 kW (98 bhp) and
develops maximum torque of 140 Newton metres. The transmission has
also been configured for this. The first and the fifth gears have
different transmission ratios to the pure, pulse and passion and –
given the light weight of just 780 kilos – this lends the two-seater
remarkably lively agility and enables a maximum speed of 155 km/h
(limited). The car sprints from zero to 100 km/h in less than ten
The exterior of the fortwo BRABUS is first and foremost
characterised by sporty "Monoblock VI" alloy wheels. These have 5.5
inch rims with 175/50 R 16 tyres at the front and 7.5 inch rims with
225/35 R 17 tyres at the rear together with external-mounted fender
flares in the colour of the body. Furthermore, the fortwo BRABUS
boasts a sports exhaust with a specially grained rear apron and fog
Special BRABUS logos and lettering embellish the body in the
following places: a logo in the right and left mirror triangles and
on the front grille, and BRABUS lettering on the rear. The fuel
filler flap features an embossed BRABUS double B symbol in chrome.
Further features include a panoramic roof made of polycarbonate,
electric windows, air conditioning with temperature control and the
"softouch" automatic gear programme.
A smart fortwo BRABUS wouldn't be a BRABUS if the tuning specialist
from Bottrop hadn't also turned its attention to the suspension.
This consists of four sports shock absorbers and four coil springs
with a BRABUS-specific characteristic. The suspension lowers the
fortwo BRABUS by 10 millimetres and also provides for more agile and
The interior is distinguished from that of normal fortwo models by a
number of BRABUS styling features. These include a BRABUS metal gear
knob, a polished metal hand-brake handle and sports pedals. The
speedometer, rev counter and clock also bear the BRABUS signature
and the gauges, colour and styling of the numbers and pointers are
all designed by BRABUS.
The same range of exterior colours is available for the smart fortwo
BRABUS as for other smart fortwo models. Both the coupé and the
cabrio are available as BRABUS versions.
