2017 – SMART FORTWO CABRIO BRABUS SUNSEEKER

The new Brabus project involving a Smart ForTwo Cabrio wanted to transform the small German model into a kind of luxury boat on wheels. The new Brabus ForTwo Sunseeker is a limited edition of which only 10 copies will be manufactured. And each with a starting price that at first seems excessive. Brabus collaborated with Sunseeker, a renowned British manufacturer of luxury yachts, to create this limited edition. The experience of the boat company is evident in each of the specific details that appear in the convertible version of the Smart ForTwo that went through the hands of the specialists of the German preparer. Taking a look at the exterior, besides being removed the emblem of Smart and replaced by the one of the Brabus, appears a body painted in Midnight Sapphire. This color was used largely on the exterior matching with some details in Silver Lake. To this must be added different elements in carbon fiber that provide a plus of sportiness, as well as the design of a compass on the B-pillar. On the other hand, it has 18-inch Brabus wheels with Y-spoke, while the suspension was lowered to highlight the image of the small urban convertible. Inside the new Smart ForTwo Sunseeker prepared by Brabus is where nautical inspiration really stands out. The designers opted for a leather upholstery in ivory with an embroidered compass on the arms rests. The panels of nautical wood cover every space of the ground. Also noteworthy for the aluminum frames on the pedals, shift lever and the parking brake. Optionally, it can be equipped with a red and white lighting system for door sills. The new exhaust system now has three central outputs with a specific finish. The result of all the changes made is at least interesting. In mechanical terms, it uses a 0.9 liter turbo engine with three cylinders and modified by Brabus to produce a power of 125 hp and 200 Nm of maximum torque, arising coupled to a dual-clutch twinamic automatic transmission and six speeds. The new Smart Fortwo Sunseeker by Brabus is now on sale. It has a price of 59,900 euros and can be purchased at the official Brabus store in Düsseldorf (Germany) or at any of the 46 branches of the Sunseeker London Group.

2017 – SMART FORTWO CABRIO ELECTRIC DRIVE

Smart confirms its presence at the Paris Motor Show, and reveals the electric versions of its for two, for two cabriole and for four.

In an important milestone for the brand, smart ensures that it will be “the only one in the world to offer its line of models with both combustion engines. The three models will share the same electric motor of 61 kW / 81 hp and 160 Nm of torque, combined with a lithium-ion battery of 17.6 kWh with a range of 160 km in the fortwo and 155 km in the two other types of body . Thanks to that combination, the fortwo accelerates from 0 to 100km / h in 11.5 seconds, while the cabriolet and the forfour will make the same sprint in 11.8 seconds and 12.7 seconds, respectively. The maximum speed will be limited in all of them to 130 km / h. Regarding battery charging, smart offers a high-performance on-board charger option that allows you to recharge your batteries up to twice as fast – depending on the country and the power supply network. With the new quick charger of 22 kW (optional from 2017), the vehicle can be fully recharged in less than 45 minutes through a three-phase socket. In the new era of electric, this is how they can begin to gain more relevance in the market. With a single gear transmission, built at the Renault factory in Clèon, in the north of France, it also has an ECO mode for better use of the batteries. This mode is designed for more efficient driving by limiting the maximum speed and accelerator pedal reaction curve while the energy recovery level due to deceleration or braking is at its maximum. When connected to the mains, it also allows this energy to be used to pre-ambient the interior through the air conditioning system, giving the possibility of heating or cooling the cabin without this having an impact on the autonomy. The launch in Europe will be in early 2017.
