Brabus has just launched its latest variant of the Smart EQ Fortwo, appropriately named the Racing Green Edition.
The car comes painted in metallic Racing Green and sits on a set of unique 16-inch Brabus Monoblock XI alloy wheels with black spokes and silver accents.
Brabus has also made extensive changes to the interior of the EQ Fortwo. Most notably, there are hand-stitched leather seats finished in Cognac Nappa leather. This plus leather extends across the steering wheel, dashboard, and door panels, and adds a luxurious feeling to the cabin that no standard Smart can match.
Other changes made include the fitment of sports pedals, a new handbrake lever, aluminum door sills, a unique shifter, and some faux carbon fiber accents across the dashboard. The car uses the same 8.0-inch infotainment system as other Smart Fortwo models, complete with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
Brabus hasn’t many changes to the car’s powertrain. As such, it continues to be powered by an 81 hp electric motor driving the rear wheels, allowing the pint-sized city car to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in 11.6 seconds and an 81 mph (130 km/h) top speed. Feeding the electric motor its juice is a tiny 17.6 kWh battery pack that allows the Fortwo to travel up to 80 miles (129 km) on a full charge.
The Smart brand is set to soon grow with the launch of an electric crossover concept at the forthcoming Munich Motor Show. While Smart refers to the vehicle as a concept, it is expected to closely resemble an eventual production model that will land in 2023.
