Brabus Tunes The ALL NEW ‘Smart’
The all new Smart has just been unveiled in Paris with roadshows around Europe where more than 300,000 people have already responded to the motto “FOR a new urban joy” and have visited one of the events with the new vehicles and local artists. The new Smart fortwo and the new Smart forfour are now celebrating their trade fair premiere at the Paris Motor Show.
While the first vehicles will be delivered to customers next month, sales of the next version are starting: the Smart fortwo with a 66 kW/90 hp top-of-the-range engine can be ordered now. In Paris Smart is also offering a glimpse of the possibilities to be offered by the smart BRABUS tailor made individualisation programme in the future, with two customised smart fortwo exhibits.
Even more fun behind the wheel, and not just in the city: The Smart fortwo recently became available with the 66 kW/90 hp top-of-the-range engine. The 898 cc engine delivers maximum torque of 135 Nm at 2500 rpm. The fortwo therefore sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 10.7 seconds and reaches speeds of up to 155 km/h. The combined fuel consumption is 4.2 litres of fuel per 100 km, which corresponds to a CO2 value of 97 grams/km. Delivery of the smart fortwo with 66 kW/90 hp starts in November 2014.
Individualisation is one of Smart’s great strengths. Smart BRABUS tailor made is correspondingly successful: since it was launched four years ago, the individualisation programme has become established across Europe and also in the USA and China. Two customised Smart fortwo at the Paris Motor Show reveal how smart BRABUS tailor made could look for the new smart generation. Its special features include the special “evening red” and “darknight blue” finish, plus the customised leather seats and steering wheel rim, with nappa leather in “graphite” or “ivory”.
