Brabus Ultimate E Shadow Edition Is One Expensive Smart Car

The Smart ForTwo is exceptionally small and quite affordable, making it one of the best city runabouts on the market. However, tuning company Brabus thought the tiny two-door could do with some alterations and has presented the Ultimate E Shadow Edition at the Geneva Motor Show.

The most important thing to know about the Smart ForTwo is that it isn’t cheap. In fact, it starts at an eye-watering €64,900 ($73,870) in Germany.

It may be hard to justify such a price tag for a Smart, but Brabus has done quite a lot of work on the car.

For starters, the tiny electric powertrain driving the ForTwo EQ Cabrio has been tweaked to now produce 91 hp and 133 lb-ft (180 Nm) of torque, a 10 hp and 15 lb-ft (20 Nm) jump over the standard car. As a result, the Brabus Ultimate E Shadow Edition can hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 10.9 seconds and top out at 81 mph (130 km/h).

Brabus has also worked extensively on altering the looks of the car. It has outfitted the Ultimate E Shadow Edition with a complete bodykit that includes flared arches, a new front spoiler, sharp rear diffuser, and new rocker panels. There’s also a set of 18-inch wheels with 205/35 front and 235/30 rear tires.

Further modifications made include tweaks to the suspension to deal with the vehicle’s new weight, wider track and low-profile tires.

The interior of the Brabus Ultimate E Shadow Edition includes bright red leather, carbon fiber and aluminum accents, as well as bespoke floor mats.

Just 28 units of the car will be built.
