Smart Fortwo Brabus Spied During Winter Testing

The new smart fortwo is getting a little bit more of a personality courtesy of Brabus.

AutoGuide.com‘s spy photographers have caught the Smart Fortwo Brabus conducting winter testing and this time it’s practically fully revealed and sitting still. Featuring a dual-tip exhaust, it appears that Brabus hasn’t fully finished the compact’s rear diffuser or has decided which wheels will accompany the hotter version of the fortwo.

Expect a bit more power out of the 1.3-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine, upwards to 120 hp with an ECU tune and a more free-flowing exhaust. Like the standard production model, the Brabus version will be available with either a six-speed manual transmission or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.

It’s not just about better performance and more aggressive styling either, Brabus will also outfit the car with a stiffer suspension, giving it a lowered stance.
