The new 220 km/h smart forfour

June 16, 2005 Up until the name smart has been with compact, parking-friendly, clever cars that a particularly intelligent form of mobility. In fact, the underlying – innovation, functionality and joie de – of the smart brand, which has been on the market for six years and is fast, mean that it has a cult image in many of its particularly among younger Nothing’s going to change At Geneva Motor Show in smart premiered the smart BRABUS and the car has just gone on for the first time in Germany. The version of the four-seater forfour here takes smart to a new dimension: with a new turbo that delivers 130 kW / 177 bhp, a top of 221 km/h and acceleration from to 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds, the new smart BRABUS is by far the fastest and most smart that has ever built.

It represents the “high end of the four-seater, as it combines performance and in a compact car in a way that has never done before. And what’s it will get your pulse as it has been developed for sheer pleasure – but without losing of its traditional virtues: its engine, when driven in a restrained is elastic, quiet and economical petrol consumption 6.8 l) meets the of Euro 4. In terms of active and safety, the BRABUS fulfils the high standards of the Mercedes Car with standard features front, side and head and with esp and high-performance disc on the rear axle, too.

130 kW / 177 bhp and a kerb weight of 1,090 make for a remarkable power-weight – that is, the weight of the vehicle by the kilowatts (or, alternatively, the of the engine: 8.4 kg per kW, or just under 6.2 kg per bhp are that quite a few sports would be proud of. It’s no then, that the smart BRABUS provides for an all-round driving experience.

The kilowatts are by a four-cylinder turbo engine 1.5 l capacity, which, despite of a similar size, is not exactly the as the standard engine for the smart With a grey cast block and an aluminium cylinder four-valve technology, two overhead roller cam levers, maintenance-free tappets and cylinder-selective injection, the boasts exceptionally advanced The air passes from the turbocharger the combustion chambers via a charge air (behind the front apron) and a aluminium suction bridge.

The system, for example, has been making it different from of the standard engine. The oil-to-water exchanger serves, on the one hand, to up the oil quickly following a cold while on the other hand it prevents the oil temperature from too high during long of motorway driving. The engine is for use with Super Plus 98). Its anti-knock sensor however, that it can also be with normal premium-grade (RON 95), with minimally reduced performance. The control unit even has an pressure sensor. This safe, environmentally-friendly operation at high altitudes, for example driving through mountain

Maximum power is reached at rpm, while the highest torque (230 Nm) is attained at rpm. It is testament to the elasticity of the that 90 per cent of the maximum power is available across the of the range from 2,300 to rpm.

The engine power is transferred to the – which has been specially for this turbo engine – via an crisply-engaging clutch. It has conventional shifting and five speeds. The is such that speeds of than 100 km/h can be reached in second gear. Thus acceleration from zero to 100 can be achieved with just a gear change. However the top is also capable of providing traction. For example, when a spurt from 80 to 120 km/h in gear, the smart forfour can hold its own against far bigger and powerful vehicles. Its low weight to other vehicles in its class is a bonus here.

The more drivetrain finds visible in a sports rear muffler chrome-plated tail pipes. A converter positioned close to the as well as an underfloor catalytic make quite sure the Euro 4 limit values are to.

Lowered suspension for even agility

The smart forfour potential is demonstrated not least by its The front axle has been modified, with features as reinforced wishbones, larger joints and new wheel hubs even sturdier brake brackets. The special 17-inch wheels are fitted with Pilot Sport tyres in 205/40 format at the front, and at the rear.

The springs have made 30 mm shorter at the front and 28 mm at the rear, while the shock are now more rigid in both the and rebound stage. The brakes ventilated at both front and have also been The lowered suspension ensures stability at speeds of over 220 and precise dynamic driving on roads. The direct steering (as with electric power makes for yet more driving around alternating bends. But no need to sacrifice comfort: the agile and very sporty does not mean you are in for a rough The abs and esp have been adapted to into account the increased and the various changes – especially on the axle.

New sporty details create an more individual appearance

modifications to the body both and out serve to emphasise the smart BRABUS’ status as a high-performance In addition to the 17-inch alloy and the lowered suspension, key features an enlarged front spoiler, a exhaust system, a rear and stylish side skirts – can all, incidentally, be retrofitted on any forfour.

A feature exclusive to the forfour BRABUS is the two diamond inserts in the front grille. A identifying feature of the BRABUS is a spoiler which, aside its visual appeal, also aerodynamic benefits: it reduces on the rear axle by 50 kilograms travel at maximum speed, lending the vehicle additional At the bottom right of the tailgate, the BRABUS appears in discreet – yet another way of recognising the most version of the smart forfour.

In the the leather on the seats (with contrasting silver seams), on the panel, and on the side trim an atmosphere befitting a premium-class This is further enhanced by the – which are also leather-covered – and the floor mats sporting lettering. The silver of the leather also appears on numerous in the interior – such as the lower of the instrument panel, the gearshift trim, the inside door the trim rings on the instruments have a new design with dials), as well as on the heating and controls. Even the end caps of the and windscreen wiper levers been silver-enamelled. Also new are the gearshift knob, the hand-brake – likewise in aluminium – and the four-spoke steering wheel with its leather rim and silver spokes, integrated buttons for operating the or radio navigation system.

BRABUS and smart are proud of the addition to their family – the end experience” of the four-seater smart This model boasts the innovative design that all smart forfour models, and the practical advantages, such as the rear bench – but with a of performance that takes the forfour BRABUS way beyond the of its class. All this makes for a driving experience, and also for a luxurious atmosphere: after this car is a true BRABUS.

The forfour BRABUS costs € in Germany. This exciting new car not gives customers the performance of a sports car, but also a extensive range of equipment leather as standard.

Smart and

smart models have represented more than a mode of transport from A to B: are an expression of innovation and joie de of intelligence and high functionality. have long since cult status. smart identify with their more so than drivers of vehicles. It’s fun to drive a and the smart world is fun. can be seen from the fact many buyers choose to go the standard equipment in order to their vehicles.

This discovery resulted in the of smart-BRABUS GmbH in March The aim of this company was to develop that raised the smart to a new dimension. A comparison might be with the successful AMG models Mercedes-Benz. Like AMG, the BRABUS models are also at sophisticated buyers who are enthusiastic design and technology, and who place emphasis on individuality and the high of materials.

Technology and design also represent the main of activity for the developers in Bottrop, First of all they increased the of the 698 cc, three-cylinder engine in the smart to 55 kW / 75 bhp, and that of the smart / roadster-coupé to no less than 74 kW / 101 That means that sporty pair of roadsters can now top speeds of 190 and 195 km/h, without fuel consumption or their for everyday use suffering in the slightest.

For the smart forfour with the 1.5 l BRABUS has developed a kit for boosting This increases the standard 80 kW / 109 bhp to 90 kW / 122 while also increasing The kit essentially consists of new camshafts and valve springs, together new software for the engine electronics and it can even be retrofitted in any smart with a 1.5 l petrol engine.

The de resistance” of the engine programme is the new engine for the smart forfour which delivers no less 130 kW / 177 bhp. Like the standard it has a capacity of 1.5 litres, but it is not quite the With a top speed of 221 km/h and from zero to 100 km/h in 6.9 it provides a driving experience that of a sports car – though it is entirely suitable for day-to-day and still consumes just 6.8 of fuel per 100 km, a figure in line modern standards.

smart-BRABUS’s second main is the production of custom components and for the vehicle body, inside and out – front and rear spoilers to a steering wheel, from wheels to a sports exhaust and many other details. supplement the standard equipment to any smart model a dynamic, appearance, and a unique one, for the smart forfour series the range of equipment, colours and makes more than combinations possible. And the choice of is just as big for the other models. The range even increases figures many times every smart is one of a kind, precisely to the customer’s wishes.
