Lorinser has been tuning anything with a Benz badge for a while, so when it came to injecting the new smart fortwo with a bit more aftermarket flava, they were all too happy to oblige.

Beginning with the exterior "enhancements," Lorinser opted for the firm's usual dose of gaudy sportification, with a new front clip including a larger air dam, a new rear bumper for the four (?!) chrome exhaust tips and wheel arch flares that house wider tires and wheels all around. The chrome treatment is carried inside, along with some brushed aluminum accents and new dash surrounds for the stereo and sat nav.

Lorinser's treatment isn't just skin-deep thankfully, as they've given buyers who've chosen any one of the three available powerplants upgraded performance. The 60 HP model gets a bump in output to 70 HP, while the 71 HP model gets an increase to 76 HP and the top-o'-the-line 82 HP model now tops out at 102 HP, able to reach 62 in 10 seconds and on to a scorning top speed of 112 MPH. Hot stuff, but you'd think they could do something about that horrendous antenna while they were at it.
