Smart and Brabus celebrate ten years of partnership with a special edition

Article by Christian Andrei, on July 25, 2012

Tuning specialist BRABUS and smart are celebrating the tenth anniversary of their joint venture with a special model. Since 2002, the joint venture has been building sporty smarts known as BRABUS. In 2003, the market got its first premium models created by the joint venture smart-BRABUS GmbH. These are the smart fortwo BRABUS coupé and cabrio.

Since the first smart fortwo BRABUS was launched, it has sold over 50,000 units throughout the world. Two years ago, it launched the customisation programme "smart BRABUS tailor made.” Since then, the programme has become very successful in Europe. It will soon be offered to U.S. and China customers later this year. Under its present estimates, over 1000 customers will opt for the smart-BRABUS tailor made offering in 2012.

In Germany, the prices begin at €2999 incl. VAT when asking for an exterior colour of the customer's choice or exclusive leather appointments in the interior. The "10th anniversary" special model comes with unique and exclusive features.

It has the usual sportiness of smart-BRABUS models but it will get many exclusive items. The anniversary model is limited to just 100 units built. This model is based on the current smart fortwo BRABUS production model with 75 kW (102 hp) and maximum torque of 147 Nm. It could reach a maximum speed of 155 km/h and could accelerate to 100 km/h in 8.9 seconds. Driving pleasure is a standard feature of this model.

Liquid silver is used to paint the tridion safety cell, bodypanels including front grille and the door mirrors, as well as its front spoiler and side skirts in the styling package. Titanium-coloured headlamps and red BRABUS logos at the front and rear are some of its additional exterior features. Its interior gets a black leather interior with high-quality hand stitching.

An exclusive red is used to paint the trim parts while its contrast components and seat console are in black. The BRABUS sports steering wheel regulates cruise control while the starter button is integrated in the gear shift lever knob. This limited edition model wears a badge with the serial number (xx/100).
