On display at the 2009 Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto was one of only 10 SMART fortwos that will be built to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the car. And this particular vehicle will be given away to one lucky person. But more on that soon.
The SMART fortwo 10th Anniversary Edition is based on the Brabus SMART fortwo and comes with many special details – most obviously is the car’s Arctic Gray Matallic paint. Another key exterior highlight are the flat black Brabus Monoblock VII wheels, measuring 15-inches up front and 17-inches in the rear. 10th Anniversary Edition logos appear on the A-pillars and rear tail gate.
The interior is stunning (in true Brabus style) with Chalet brown leather and contrasting gray Alcantara piping, with gray stitching. The Chalet leather can also be found on the door panels, shift knob, handbrake and steering wheel.
As one PR rep told us, “you’d think you were in a Maserati.”
The 10th Anniversary Edition SMART fortwo is powered by the same 70hp three-cylinder engine as the standard fortwo, however, it does feature a Brabus sport tuned exhaust system. Brabus also worked on the suspension of the car.

The remaining nine cars will be available through a reservation lottery that begins February 12, 2009.

>> smart fortwo 10th Anniversary Edition makes its exclusive debut at the Canadian International Auto Show
TORONTO, ON – smart Canada unveiled today a special 10th Anniversary Edition smart fortwo during the 2009 Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto, which is being held from February 13-22. Based on the smart fortwo BRABUS coupé, which also made its regional premiere today at the Canadian International Auto Show, the 10th Anniversary Edition is limited to just 10 units that will be hand tailored at the state-of-the-art BRABUS facility in Bottrop, Germany. This exclusive model boasts unique design elements including special Arctic Grey Metallic paint, and a hand assembled interior that is trimmed in Chalet brown leather with contrasting grey Alcantara piping and stitching. This special leather trim also covers the kneepad, door panel, gear shift knob, handbrake handle and steering wheel. The exterior styling of the 10th Anniversary Edition smart fortwo is further differentiated by BRABUS monoblock VII wheels, 15” front and 17” rear, that are painted flat black, and limited edition 10th Anniversary logos that are affixed on the A-pillars and the rear tail gate. The 10th Anniversary Edition is powered by a compact, three-cylinder 70 hp engine and features the same sport tuned exhaust system and sport chassis designed for the smart fortwo BRABUS. The luxurious interior features stylish velour floor mats embroidered with the “edition” logo and many other upgrades from the top-of-the-line smart fortwo, including additional dashboard instruments and brushed aluminium sports pedals. Truly an exclusive offering, this special 10th Anniversary Edition is an appropriate way for smart to mark 10 years of defining a new car category. smart Canada is keen to engage the public in the celebration of this important milestone, which is why it recently launched a national contest that will give away one of the 10th Anniversary Edition vehicles as the grand prize. More information about the contest can be found at: www.winwithsmart.ca. With one vehicle already earmarked for the contest, the nine remaining models will be available for purchase through a reservation lottery that opens to the public on February 12, 2009. Nine entrants will be drawn randomly at the end of April and these lucky reservation holders will have the opportunity to take delivery of their new 10th Anniversary Edition at their local smart Centre in May.
