We didn’t have to wait long for the first appearance of a Smart ForTwo Brabus prototype, the brand’s new coin..pocket rocket based on the third generation of their two-seater city car that was presented just last week.
The big rear wheels and the protruding dual exhaust pipes are the telltale signs of Brabus‘ involvement, with the production model to further differentiate itself from the regular versions of the ForTwo with spoilers, darker lights, a unique front grille and modified bumpers on the outside, plus sportier touches on the inside.
For its motivation, the new ForTwo Brabus is thought to get a tuned version of the 0.9-liter turbocharged 3-cylinder unit producing somewhere between 110 and 120-horses. Like the plain ForTwo, it should offer the choice of both a six-speed manual and a seven-speed dual-clutch automated transmission driving the rear wheels.
A lowered sports suspension, better brakes and possibly changes to the car’s steering and electronic driving systems, should round out the upgrades.
Look for the new ForTwo Brabus at next year’s Geneva Motor Show.
