Wildestar body-kit and upgrade for the electric motor
Under the name Brabus Ultimate E Facelift, the German preparer presented his latest proposal for the Smart electric, the EQ Fortwo, in its version cabriolet 2020. As per tradition, a powerful and spectacular aesthetic body-kit is flanked by a personalized cockpit and a more powerful engine.
Small upgrade for the electric engine
Starting from the heart, thanks to the kit Brabus PowerExtra the electric motor of this Brabus Ultimate E Facelift increases the power by 10 HP, reaching 92 HP, with a maximum torque of 180 Nm (+20 Nm) which allows it to shoot from 0 to 100 km / h in 10.9 seconds and to reach the maximum limited speed of 130 km / h.
To this increase in power is added a modified bodywork with the Widestar kit which includes widened wheel arches that house 18-inch wheels and wider tires (205/35 R 18 at the front, 235/30 R 18 at the rear) to take advantage of the maximum performance of the small German two-seater.
3 driving modes
Inside, customized with different options including a completely leather upholstery, the driver can select different driving modes. Level 1 corresponds to the standard electric motor of the current Smart EQ Fortwo. Eco mode reinforces energy recovery, which means that when you lift your foot from the accelerator, you are making the most of your resistance. With level 3 the accelerator pedal reacts in a more spontaneous form and the energy recovery system is reduced to the standard mode.
There Smart EQ Fortwo convertible from Brabus declare aautonomy of 125 km with a refill.
