Brabus Ultimate E Shadow Edition Is A €64,900 Smart ForTwo EQ!

With the unveiling of the Ultimate E Shadow Edition, Brabus has stepped up its game once more. The car is based on the electric Smart ForTwo EQ Cabrio and has more power and other upgrades.

Limited to 28 units, it has a starting price of €64,900 (equal to $73,870) in Germany, tax included, and wants to attract buyers with its tuned electric motor and more aggressive looks.

The unit puts out 92 PS (91 hp / 68 kW) and 180 Nm (133 lb-ft) of torque, a 10 PS (10 hp / 7 kW) and 20 Nm (15 lb-ft) increase over the stock model. Brabus claims a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration of 10.9 seconds and a top speed that remains limited to 130 km/h (81 mph).

Users have four driving modes to choose from, with maximum output available in ‘Sport+’. Whenever they don’t need the extra oomph, drivers can select ‘Eco’ and enjoy up to 125 km (78 miles) of range.

    I’m not sure who the demographic is for this car considering they have to shell out $74,000 for the privilege of ownership.
    Why not just buy a Fiat 500 Abarth for 1/3 the price, around $24,000.
