Smart has announced, yet again, that they'll be debuting their new fortwo in Detroit next month. Our heart rate remains... unchanged. And word that a cabrio version of DC's city car is on its way doesn't come as much of a surprise either.
However, what does escalate our pulse is the possibility of Brabus hotting-up the fortwo with a 110 HP motor that would allow the misshapen jellybean to crest the century mark when given enough tarmac. Throw in some suspension tuning and a few other go-fast bits, and it has the potential having the best ratio of fun per square foot then any other super-sub-compact out there.

Expect the drop top to drop into dealers in the spring of 2007, although there's no word yet on whether the Brabus-tuned version will make it to North American consumers.

      I wish any of the Smart cars would be available by Spring of 2007.. but I think that might be off. Seems as if I heard that late '07 as an '08 model. Itching for it though. Just hope they didn't make it too much bigger.

      Mark - I'm failing to see what mistake was made. Brabus is tuning the smart, again. This time it's the new version that came out earlier this year. Yes, we're well aware that smart has already announced a convertible model, we posted on it when the original car debuted.

      One day later and the geniuses that run this blog haven't even admitted to their mistakes and corrected the item.

      my god is that a old news... smart fortwo convertible tuned by Brabus is several years old now.. the fortwo is sold since 1998 in europe. It is extrem money grave for Mercedes... they should stop it and not try to sell it all around the world.
