At 2009 Frankfurt Motor show, Brabus has revealed the coolest tuning job for the Smart Fortwo ever! It’s called the Ultimate R and the performance it delivers is really insane for a car of this type!
The miserable three-cylinder engine of the Smart has undergone a deep surgery at Brbaus clinic and is fitted with a turbocharger. Now it develops 112 hp and 150 nm of torque.
But the really amazing thing with this car is the acceleration! It leaves all of the V6s, hell V8s in a deep deep shame! It does 0 to 100km/h in 3.9 seconds!!! Bring on the Ferraris
However, there is not much to like about its top speed which is only 170 km/h. But you know, it’s OK. Any further than that and it would fly high!
To keep this little beast in check Brabus has optimized the suspension components with new coil-overs which drop the car by 30 mm. There are also new gas-pressure shock absorbers to improve the handling.
This crazy Smart also has Brabus Monoblock VI double-spoke wheels which come in size 18 inch. At front they are 7 inch wide with 205/35 R 18 tires and at the back, 8.5 inch wide with 235/30 R 18.
The appearance of the two-seater can best be described as unadulterated racing looks. Clear-coated carbon-fiber is a striking complement to the special metallic paint. The hightech material can be found on the lower part of the B-pillar, the front spoiler with its additional flaps, on the rocker panels and the rear diffuser.
The interior of the Smart Ultimate R is decorated accordingly, there are sport seats upholstered with nonslip grey Alcantara provide plenty lateral support during fast cornering and Carbon fiber inserts plus steel pedals with rubber pads and aluminum shifter, all add up to the sporty, hell racy feel of the cabin!
