smart Brabus Roadster V6 Biturbo engine start
Just 1 of 2 remaining examples of the 1.4 V6 biturbo, from an original build of 10. This is the
only working example left, but is not allowed to be driven on the roads in
This one is located at the Brabus facility in Bottrop, Germany. The other
remains in storage at the smart factory in Hambach.
They were originally designed and built in 2003 to demonstrate what can be
achieved by Brabus when Daimler set-up the smart-Brabus partnership.
The estimated cost of each unit was said to be around 330,000 euros each.
How to hide a Brompton bike in a Smart car (451)
Així és com carrego una Brompton de tija alta a l'Smart Fortwo 451 de
manera que quedi amagada per la tapa del maleter i ben fixada perquè no es
mogui en marxa. Recomano l'accessori A0008140035.
That's how I load my Brompton bike with extended seat pillar in a Smart car
451 so that it is covered by the trunk blind and securely so it will not
move up. Accessory A0008140035 recommended.

smart WeSC cooperation
Talk is silver, driving is golden
smart and the street fashion brand WeSC have joined forces in a partnership
and will be presenting what are quite literally the golden results of their
work from 13 September at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt: the
"smart BRABUS tailor made by WeSC" and the "headphones for the smart by
WeSC have selected classic elements with elegant colour contrasting from
the countless individualisation options in the smart BRABUS tailor-made
range: the smart fortwo cabrio is painted in gold shades all over, partly
matt, partly high-gloss, and all the colours have been created for the
Swedish label by the car tuner BRABUS. The jet black wheels and the leather
seats with crossways quilting bear the unmistakeable signature of the
streetstyle experts. Meanwhile smart took care of the design of the 32-ohm
headphones from WeSC, giving a nod to the car's look, as can be seen in the
perforated black ear pads and high-gloss golden highlights.
The headphones will be available from spring 2012 via http://shop.wesc.com/
and in WeSC shops and Concept Stores all over the world. The golden city
runabout will also be seen on the streets then, and advance orders can be
placed via BRABUS with immediate effect. The equipment of the "smart BRABUS
tailor made by WeSC" includes air conditioning, the leather BRABUS sports
steering wheel with steering wheel gearshift, the 75 kW engine with turbocharging and lots of other features. The
gold-plated horse-head knob, which adorns the shift lever of the WeSC
original, is a one-off and not for order.

We still continue to get hits on this video so I am leaving it up. I'm
looking into the Smart Electric as a possibility of a commuter vehicle.
All I need is a charging station at home and at the office. That's not
impossible. This lease deal Smart has for $139 is something to consider.
If you sign-up for the battery plan (which is part of the $139) then there
is no annual mileage limitations on the lease - the usual deal-killer for
me on leasing a car as my commute is 40 miles one-way. I'm looking into
doing this but I do need to resolve the charging-station issue. The Smart
Electric does not have the herky-jerky transmission of the gas model. It's
quite smooth. As a commuter and for that price, it is something to
Since I originally posted this video I have modified my impressions a bit.
I discovered other cars in this same price range that have better mileage
on regular gas (the SmartCar uses premium), will seat 4 people, and have a
better air-conditioner and smoother transmission. All that said, I will
stick with my original statement that it is a fun car to drive, handles
well even on the highway, is a cinch to park, still is a head-turner, and
serves a certain market niche. Good luck!
This video really is for my god-daughter in Canada who wanted to see my
Smart Car. So this is a Smart Fortwo demo ride video taken on Easter,
2010. As explained in the video, it takes a bit of getting used to the
automatic shifting mechanism. It can be driven fairly smoothly but
requires about an hour to get the right touch of the gas and brake. The
brake is sensitive and is hinged from the bottom which is unusual these
Great little car. Lots of fun. Good price. Good gas mileage, although
premium fuel is needed. Basic stereo is pretty good. A/C ran well. About
the only accessory not available is cruise-control. Highway speeds were
good, stable, and responsive. There never was a feeling the car is as
small as it it. The view from inside seems very similar to any sub-compact
car, contrary to what one might think.
Comfort is quite reasonable on smooth highway. However, in-town potholes
and rough road can be quite jarring, as might be expected for such a short
car. Ground clearance is good and one sits quite high up for a good view.
Two large people are easily handled with no noticeable performance issues.
Interior room and head-room is excellent. There is no need get down and
crawl into the car. Seating is high and doors open wide for easy access.
There is an all-electric version but it is not yet available in the USA. I
suspect it would be very smooth as most electrics do not really require a
Overall, I think it is a great car, a bit of novelty, and probably a good
commuter car. It really is limited to two seats and groceries. Probably,
for a few thousand more, one could purchase a true 4-seat car that is more
traditional such as a Honda Fit. If one lived downtown in a major city,
though, this would be an excellent car as one can park it just about
anywhere. A major trip of a few hundred miles would not be unreasonable,
either, so it is quite useable all-around. Reports and videos elsewhere on
YT give the vehicle good safety marks.
Overall, I liked it and felt quite comfortable in the vehicle after a
weekend of use.
