Brabus Smart Fortwo

GENEVA — Mercedes tuning specialist Brabus, as part of its annual Geneva auto show display, will unveil two new performance variants of the recently redesigned Smart Fortwo.

Brabus Smart FortwoThe 1.0-liter three-cylinder gas engine in the Fortwo Brabus and Fortwo Brabus Xclusive gets a 30 percent boost in output to 98 horsepower, which enables 0-60-mph acceleration in less than 10 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 96 mph.

Brabus also has firmed up and lowered the suspension system to give the Fortwo a sportier ride with better handling. Monoblock VI alloy wheels and a sport exhaust system have been fitted. Other exterior modifications include foglamps and wider rear wheel arches. In addition, the Xclusive edition gets a front spoiler, rear apron, side skirts and tinted-glass headlamps.

The cabin receives a Brabus gearshift knob, handbrake handle and pedals, as well as signature tach, speedo and clock. The Xclusive boasts even more gear, including a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated leather seats and Brabus floor mats.

Brabus says the Fortwo variants will reach European dealers this fall.
