BRABUS Ultimate E Facelift 

BRABUS Ultimate E Facelift: That is the label under which we present the latest evolutionary stage of its equally exclusive and agile city sports car.

The starting point for this electrically powered supercar is the revised smart EQ fortwo cabrio of model year 2020. The BRABUS Ultimate E Facelift thus continues the successful tradition of exclusive BRABUS supercars based on the smart fortwo models that goes back several generations.
To this end, the output of the electric motor was increased to 68 kW / 92 hp (91 bhp). In the sportiest of the four drive modes, the exclusive two-seater sprints from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 10.9 seconds. The top speed is limited to 130 km/h (81 mph).

Exterior. Statements.

However, the “pocket rocket” from BRABUS impresses not only with its dynamic alternative powertrain: In conjunction with the 18-inch forged wheels, the thrillingly styled widebody version with BRABUS front fascia redesigned expressly for the facelift model gives the two-seater an especially exciting design.

The BRABUS WIDESTAR widebody with precise-fit rocker panels creates an optimal transition between the wider fenders at the front and rear axle. A diffuser developed specifically for the electric car gives the rear end of the widebody version a decidedly sporty look. In accordance with the dynamic principle of this supercar, the black show car for Geneva sports red highlights on the central spoiler blade, on the rocker panels and on the rear diffuser.

wheels & Chassis. Wider than average.

 Thanks to being produced using an elaborate hi-tech forging process, the BRABUS Monoblock Y rims with nine delicate spokes that taper off toward the outer edge of the wheel in the shape of a "Y" are especially light. The front wheels weight just 6.7 kilograms (14.7 pounds) each, the rear wheels just 7.1 kilograms (15.6 pounds), making them some of the lightest 18-inch wheels on the world market.

The BRABUS WIDESTAR widebody allows installing wheels of size 7Jx18 with 205/35 R 18 high-performance tires on the front axle. The fender flares at the rear axle even offer space for rims eight inches wide with size 235/30 R 18 tires. This combination achieves especially agile and safe handling. This is also due in large part to the BRABUS suspension with a sporty and comfortable setup, which was precisely calibrated to the important parameters of the electric car, the ultra-low-profile tires and the wider track.

Power & Agility. ZERO EMISSION.

Every BRABUS supercar embodies special driving fun thanks to superior performance. The BRABUS Ultimate E Facelift city sports car is no exception. In order to achieve significantly improved dynamics, the BRABUS engineers, technicians and programmers developed a performance upgrade for the three-phase synchronous motor of the smart fortwo EQ cabrio of model year 2020. For this purpose, they drew upon the expertise of BRABUS ZERO EMISSION, the business division of BRABUS Group established in 2008 committed to the development of alternative powertrain concepts.

The BRABUS PowerXtra performance upgrade for the electric powertrain of the BRABUS Ultimate E Facelift comprises a reprogrammed torque control system, special modules for the driving dynamics switch and the accelerator pedal, as well as a special gateway. The perfect synchronization of all these modifications unleashes the reserves inherent in this electric powertrain ex-factory.

The "driving fun switch" in the cockpit enables the driver to choose between four different drive modes. Level 1 corresponds to the stock electric motor of the current smart EQ fortwo. The “Eco" level increases the energy recovery rate, which means the two-seater brakes much more strongly than the production model when you lift off the accelerator. Level 3 stands for "Sport.” The accelerator pedal delivers quicker response and the energy recovery rate is dialed down to the production level.

The BRABUS Ultimate E Facelift delivers maximum dynamics in "Sport +” mode: Peak output increases to 68 kW / 92 hp (91 bhp), peak torque grows to 180 Nm (133 lb-ft), an impressive 20 Nm (15 lb-ft) more than in the production vehicle. In this mode, the driver is not only delighted by the even livelier electric powertrain, but also by the even more instantaneous response to accelerator pedal commands.

The exclusive city sports car also offers maximum eco-friendliness as it is carbon-neutral despite its impressive performance on the road. Depending on the driving style, the BRABUS Ultimate E Facelift has a range of up to 125 kilometers (78 miles) on one battery charge, in line with its intended use as a city speedster. 

INTERIoR. individual handmade masterpieces.

The BRABUS Ultimate E Facelift city sports car would not be complete without an exclusively designed cockpit enhanced in the company upholstery shop with a BRABUS fine leather interior, in every detail tailored to the vehicle owner's personal preferences. Like every BRABUS fine leather interior, the cockpit of the two-seater also is a perfect example of an ideal combination of fascinating design, masterful workmanship and high-quality material selection.

The interior of the Ultimate E features especially soft and breathable black BRABUS Mastik leather upholstery. The bright red double-stitching matches the highlights on the body. In addition, the seat surfaces and inner sections of the two door panels feature honeycomb quilting applied with pinpoint precision.

BRABUS aluminum pedals, shifter and emergency brake handle give the cockpit a touch of racing looks. The scuff plates integrate a BRABUS logo, which like the emblem in the stainless footrest in the driver's footwell changes color from white to red. High-quality leather floor mats with BRABUS ULTIMATE E logo complete the classy ambiance.

Of course, the extensive range of equipment of the BRABUS Ultimate E Facelift also includes elementary comfort features such as climate control, sound and navigation system. The "BRABUS Ultimate E" badge on the dashboard documents the affiliation with the exclusive family of BRABUS supercars.
