10 Things You Should Know About the 2011 smart fortwo
#6. Specialty Tuner BRABUS Edition Also Available
BRABUS is a German tuner known for its partnership with Mercedes-Benz in producing custom editions of some of that luxury automaker's automobiles. The Smart fortwo BRABUS edition co-opts some of the chunky, extroverted styling that characterizes BRABUS models thanks to the installation of a body kit on the fortwo that includes front, rear and side skirts and a sport exhaust system. Larger 17-inch BRABUS alloy wheels help to complete the exterior look. Inside the BRABUS edition, the fortwo benefits from luxury items such as heated leather seats and a panoramic sunroof, as well as sporty trim in the form of brush aluminum pedals and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The fortwo BRABUS also offers tighter handling than the standard version of the Smart car thanks to its lowered sport suspension system.
