Brabus Mods The 2017 Smart ForTwo Into A 107 HP Screaming Pocket MonsterJason Torchinsky4/26/16 7:50pmFiled to: 2017 Brabus Smart ForTwoBeijing Motor ShowSmart13415EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkThere’s something I genuinely love about the Brabus-ified Smart ForTwos. The very idea of a tuning company squeezing the most performance they can out of a tiny city car encapsulates the grand ridiculousness that is exactly what I love about cars. This latest microbeast looks pretty great, too, and is a solid 1/11th as potent as a Bugatti Veyron.AdvertisementSure, 107 HP (at 4750 RPM) isn’t much by modern standards, but in a car the size of the Smart it’s not bad at all, and it’s more impressive when you realize Brabus is getting that out of an 898cc turbo-three that normally makes 89 HP.That’s, what, 18 HP more than stock, about 20%, and they’re getting 125 lb-ft (89.2 Nrp) of torque, 25 more (and 25%) than the usual 100. That’s impressive, especially from a sub one-liter engine. For comparison, it’s 17 more horses than a Porsche 356 made in 1965. It’s not huge, but in this car, it’s enough to have some fun.I know it says 109 hp there, but US spec HP is 107. Check for yourself!Weirdly, the Brabus version isn’t offered with a manual transmission, only the six-speed dual clutch auto. It’s a way better auto than Smart used to be stuck with, and Brabus has tweaked it to shift even faster, but this car would just simply be more fun with a manual.
