Smart ForTwo With AMG GT R Genes Is The Preposterous Mashup Of The Day

If the Smart ForTwo and the Mercedes-AMG GT R would have a baby, then it would definitely look a lot like this.

It sure makes no sense at all, so it’s a good thing that it’s just a render created by Felipe Guzzo, who apparently decided to delve into the “what if” universe.

The green shade, Panamericana grille and front bumper, as well as the larger and wider wheels, hark to the GT R and, although it’s just for kicks, we have to admit they don’t look that bad.

In the meantime, back in the real world, those looking to spruce up their ForTwos straight from the factory can go ahead and order the Brabus series. Available for the ForFour, too, it comes with a more aggressive styling, sports seats wrapped in Nappa leather, stitched dashboard, and a modest improvement in power.

The 900cc engine produces 109PS (107hp / 80kW) and 170Nm (125lb-ft) of torque, or some 20 percent more than the stock car, which lowers the ForTwo to 100km/h (62mph) acceleration time to 9.5sec and increases top speed to 180km/h (mph).

Hardly tarmac-tearing stuff, but still quite respectable for the diminutive city car. Besides, we doubt you’d want to go any faster than that in a ForTwo…
