German tuning company Brabus is already preparing a more powerful version of the freshly revealed Smart ForTwo.
Our spy photographers managed to snap some pictures of the upcoming Smart ForTwo Brabus out testing on public roads, identified by its dual exhaust setup. The car in the photos appears to be nearly identical to the standard car, although Brabus will likely tack on a larger front grille and a revised front facia when the car is complete.
The 1.3-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine found in the standard ForTwo is expected to be used in the Brabus car as well, though it will be tuned to make somewhere between 105 and 120 hp thanks to more turbo boost and a more free flowing exhuast. It should be available with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, same as the standard car.
It isn’t just more power however. Brabus will also install a lowered, stiffer suspension setup along with a unique set of wheels to make sure that this small car handles the corners well.
