Popular Mercedes Benz tuner BRABUS will be displaying two new modified versions of the second-generation smart fortwo at next month’s Geneva Motor Show. The German tuner managed to squeeze 98bhp (72kW) and 140Nm of torque from the fortwo’s three-cylinder turbo engine, delivering 30% more power than the BRABUS variant of the predecessor model.

With a kerb weight of just 770kg, the BRABUS fortwo achieves a weight to power ratio of just 7.8kg per bhp. In addition to the engine upgrades, BRABUS has added unique alloy wheels, wider rear wheel arches, a sports exhaust system and fog lights. Furthermore, it has a firmer suspension setup and is lowered by 15 millimetres.

The other model on display will be the more upmarket BRABUS Xclusive. Additional features limited to the Xclusive model is a full body dress-kit with a front spoiler, side skirts and tinted clear glass headlights. Inside, the car gets heated leather seats embossed with the BRABUS logo. A modified three-spoke leather sports steering wheel with steering wheel gearshift and BRABUS velour floor mats are side protection airbags to protect the head and chest. The two BRABUS variants will hit showrooms by the middle of the year with pricing announced closer to the launch.
