2008 Brabus Ultimate 112 news, pictures, specifications, and information
The exterior is custom-painted a flaming mother-of-pearl/orange color, the interior is upholstered in black BRABÚS leather and Alcantara wîth orange seams, and it has lots of power under the hood: BRABÚS (www.brabus.com) presents the limited-edition special model BRABÚS ÚLTIMATE 112 at the Frankfurt International Auto Show IAA 2007. The ÚLTIMATE 112 is based on the smart fortwo and is a true city sports car. And as such it represents a unique combination of extravagant equipment, sporty performance and agile handling.

In addition to the custom paint the BRABÚS ÚLTIMATE 112 sets itself further apart wîth a muscular body kit that includes a front spoiler, rocker panels and BRABÚS WIDESTAR fender flares front and back.

The large wheel houses offer ample space for a tire/wheel combination that is highly unusual for a car of this size: The glossy black BRABÚS Monoblock VI double-spoke wheels are mounted on the front axle in size 7Jx18 wîth size 205/35 R 18 high-performance tires. In the rear 8.5Jx18 wheels wîth size 235/30 R 18 tires provide plenty of grip to transfer the power of the engine to the road.

Specially calibrated to these ultra-low-profile tires and the wider track is the height-adjustable BRABÚS coil-over suspension that combines direct, safe and sporty handling wîth great ride comfort.

With these modifications the ÚLTIMATE 112 offers the perfect platform for the powerful BRABÚS three-cylinder turbo engine. As the exclusive special model's name reveals, the engine produces 112 PS (110 hp) / 82.4* kW at 5,750 rpm. Even more important for everyday driving is the for this vehicle class exceptional peak torque of 150 Nm (111 lb-ft), available over a wide rev range from 2,800 to 4,200 rpm.

Vital Stats
Engine : 3-cylinder
Power: 110 hp
Torque: 111 ft-lbs

Shifting in the BRABÚS ÚLTIMATE 112 is done either automatically or wîth §teering-wheel paddles just like in Formula 1 racing. The paddles are mounted to an ergonomically shaped BRABÚS sport §teering wheel.


With sprint times from 0 – 60 km/h (0–37 mph) in 3.9 seconds and 0 – 100 km/h (0-62 mph) of 9.5 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 170 km/h (106 mph) the convertible also sets the performance benchmarks in its class.

This performance is accompanied acoustically by the BRABÚS stainless-steel sport exhaust and its dual tailpipes made from cast aluminum.

Exquisite highlights also abound in the interior of the ÚLTIMATE 112: The especially soft and breathable black BRABÚS Mastik leather is stitched wîth orange seams.

The BRABÚS interior concept includes embossed BRABÚS emblems as well as instrument panel, instrument bezels, tach, speedometer, clock, turn-signal lever and door handles, all color-coordinated wîth the exterior. Stainless-steel foot pedals wîth anti-slip padding together wîth an aluminum shifter and emergency brake lever add touches of racing atmosphere.

A climate control system, radio and a navigation system are also part of the standard equipment of this open two-seater.

The BRABÚS ÚLTIMATE 112 is being built in a limited-edition series of just 112 cars, each sporting a consecutively numbered placard in the interior. The BRABÚS ÚLTIMATE 112 sells for 45,900 Euros MSRP.
