BRABUS and Mercedes-Benz took the covers off the new Smart ForTwo BRABUS electric-drive today at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show – and you won’t like it when it’s angry and that’s probably because it has too much light green inside-out.
Built around the “environmental friendliness does not mean making sacrifices” theme BRABUS takes the Smart ForTwo electric-drive to a higher-level of exclusivity. The exterior is finished in matte-green paintwork along with a white cabriolet soft-top and LED daytime driving lights. The interior also features leather and fabrics in green and white.
With an upgraded sports suspension and the BRABUS Monoblock VII give the Smart ForTwo electric-drive a sportier feel. A series production is scheduled for the near future.
