Smart cars aren’t known for their performance pedigree but who couldn’t use a bit more power. German tuner Brabus has come to the party and unveiled its Ultimate R smart fortwo art this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show.

The go hard Smart fortwo is powered by a turbocharged 3-cylinder engine that develops 82.4 kW at 5,750 rpm and 150 Nm of torque between 3,300 and 3,900 rpm. Brabus claims it has shortened shift times in comparison to the standard model. The official performance numbers state the Ulitmate R can reach a top speed of 170 km/h and do the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in 9.5 seconds.

The Ultimate R is fitted with a custom coil-over sport suspension that lowers the ride height by 30 mm and gas-pressure shock absorbers.

Featuring a special gun metal paint job and carbon fibre components the Ultimate R will be available in both coupe and convertible forms.
