Smart and Brabus have celebrated the 10th anniversary of being partners with a special edition ForTwo. It is called the, wait for it… Tenth Anniversary Edition.
To differentiate the limited edition car, it has a liquid silver exterior with black accents with matte grey 16-inch alloy wheels. The interior changes include embroidered leather seats, lots of aluminium details, red trim and an individually numbered badge. More significantly, Smart has equipped the ForTwo with heated seats, GPS navigation and a new light package.
Power still comes from its turbocharged 1.0-litre engine that produces 75 kW and 147 Nm of torque and allows it to sprint from 0 – 100 km/h in 8.9 seconds before reaching a top speed of 155 km/h. We thought Brabus were a big power performance tuner? They have at least lowered the suspension by a few mm and fitted a more throaty exhaust.
When we road tested the Smart ForTwo Passion Cabrio last year we found it to be too much of a mixed bag. It was great in urban traffic and surprisingly fun to drive, but then let down by the high pricing, awful automated manual gearbox and poor fuel economy. Smart say production of this 10th Anniversary model will be limited to 100 units. Thank goodness.
