The production-destined Smart ForTwo EV showed its stuff at the Detroit Auto Show in January, and now Brabus has taken its turn to give a 'near production' variant the custom spin.

Subtlety is a fine art, and one not much practiced by custom car builders. Brabus is no exception, and to indicate the enviro-friendly nature of the car, they painted the whole thing green.

Beyond the lime-jello exterior, the car also gets a set of Monoblock VII custom wheels, LED ddriving lights, a white cabriolet soft top and matching green and white interior elements.

A sporty suspension enhances handling since the power mods typically on tap with Brabus are more or less off-limits at this point. To help people know the little Brabus is coming, they've also fitted a special sound generator that emits a sound "specially developed for the smart electric drive" and which is tied directly into the car's drive system.

Expect the Brabus variant to go into production with very similar elements to the show car shortly after the Smart itself goes into production later this year.

  1. I'd use the space ship noises happily and drive forth to places and civilisations where no electric car has gone before. Cross fingers they have recharge stations there.
