BRABUS Smart variants to be unveiled in Geneva
Stuttgart, Germany – Smart will present the world premiere of two BRABUS variations on its Fortwo at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
Rated at 98 hp, the Smart Fortwo BRABUS and BRABUS Xclusive have more than 30 per cent more engine power than the BRABUS variant of the previous model, but with low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The new models also have a 24 per cent lower weight-to-power ratio.
Both models use a 1.0-litre, three-cylinder gasoline engine. The BRABUS features alloy wheels, wider rear wheel arches, sports exhaust system, fog lights and firmer, lowered suspension, while the more luxurious Xclusive includes leather heated seats, velour floor mats, standard head/thorax side airbags, modified three-spoke leather sports steering wheel, and exclusive silver or black exterior colour scheme.
