Smart Fortwo by Carlsson

Monday, September 12th, 2011

Carlsson has created what’s possibly the most luxurious smart fortwo coupe to date.

The small city car benefits from a subtle body kit with front spoiler and rear diffuser for no other reason than showing off! It also gets four tailpipes and 17-inch wheels.

The Fortwo also gets a sport suspension which lowered the car by 15 millimetres at the front and 35 millimetres at the rear.

The interior is the best part where you find quilted Nappa leather with embroidered Carlsson logos in the backrests, and more leather on the steering wheel and dashboard, in addition to  Alcantara, used to trim kneepad, headliner, sunblinds, pillars, instrument topside and glove compartment cover, and Carlsson floor mats.

2011 Smart Fortwo by Carlsson

Despite being a small city car, the smart cars are not the cheapest means of urban transportation. They are more of a fashion accessory than a car.

And Carlsson realizing that has come up with a package which is inspired by the C25 supercar, costs a big pile of money and loads the car with lots of nice but useless items!

Apart form the ostentatious paint hob which emphasizes the car’s new grille, wheels and spoilers, the car gets a full ‘Softwalk’ Nappa leather and Alcantara package for instrument panels, knee area, instrument cluster, radio and air-conditioning console, air vents, doors and door pockets. The seats can be included too for extra cost.

The package costs around 6000 euros, but if you are mad you may also want to order a 1295 euros high-end audio system with a digital two-channel power-amp with 400-Watt RMS output and a 16.5-centimetre loudspeaker and a textile tweeter.

Brabus Smart Ultimate R

Saturday, September 19th, 2009

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 Brabus Smart Ultimate R icon smile

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!
