Carbon Fiber, Racing Looks and Power: The BRABUS ULTIMATE R Based on the smart fortwo

Carbon fiber, racing looks and power: That's the BRABÚS motto for the special model BRABÚS ÚLTIMATE R based on the smart fortwo. Its three-cylinder turbocharged engine produces 112 hp (110 bhp) / 82.4 kW and contributes to the ultimate city sports car's agility as does its sports suspension wîth high-performance tires up to size 235/30 R 18 on the rear axle. The racing-look exterior of the car features a special ‘gun metal' paint job and carbon fiber components. Sport seats upholstered wîth Alcantara provide firm support for driver and passenger.

The ÚLTIMATE R delivers the kind of performance that its racing looks promise: The tuned smart engine produces 112 hp (110 bhp) / 82.4 kW at 5,750 rpm. Just as impressive is the peak torque of 150 Nm (111 lb-ft), available on a plateau between 3,300 and 3,900 rpm. Shift times of the transmission in the BRABÚS special model are shorter than in the production car. Gears can be shifted either automatically or wîth Formula One-type shift paddles on the ergonomically shaped BRABÚS sport §teering wheel wîth a diameter of just 32 centimeters (12.6 inches).

The performance figures of the little speedster promise tons of driving fun: The ÚLTIMATE R zooms from rest to 60 km/h (37 mph) in just 3.9 seconds and reaches 100 km/h (62 mph) after just 9.5 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 170 km/h (106 mph).

The stainless-steel BRABÚS sport exhaust system wîth dual cast aluminum tailpipe optimizes power yield and gives the two-seater a very sporty exhaust note.

The appearance of the two-seater can best be described as unadulterated racing looks. Clear-coated carbon-fiber is a striking complement to the special metallic paint. The high-tech material can be found on the lower part of the B-pillar, the front spoiler wîth its additional flaps, on the rocker panels and the rear diffuser.

5-speed Sequential
Wider fenders offer space for a tire/wheel combination that must be considered generously dimensioned for a smart. Black-painted BRABÚS Monoblock VI double-spoke wheels are mounted on the front axle in size 7Jx18 wîth size 205/35 R 18 high-performance tires. On the rear axle size 8.5Jx18 wheels wîth size 235/30 R 18 tires provide maximum traction.


The height-adjustable BRABÚS coil-over sport suspension lowers the ride height of the ÚLTIMATE R by some 30 millimeters (1.2 inches). Firmer gas-pressure shocks further contribute to the car's agile handling wîth great safety reserves.

The interior of the high-end subcompact car also exudes racing ambiance. Strongly contoured sport seats upholstered wîth nonslip grey Alcantara provide plenty lateral support during fast cornering. The beautiful material is delicately finished by the BRABÚS upholsterers wîth shining red seams and can also be found on the dashboard and both doors.

Carbon fiber applications add further sporty highlights. The high-tech material is used on the speedometer, tach, clock, instrument bezels, turn-signal stalk and door handles. Stainless-steel pedals wîth rubber pads and aluminum shifter and emergency brake lever are the perfect complements.

A climate control system, radio and navigation system are also part of the two-seater's standard equipment. The ÚLTIMATE R is available as a coupe and as a convertible.
