BRABUS ULTIMATE E FACELIFT
NEW ERA OF MOBILITY
20.04.2020 – BRABUS Ultimate E Facelift: This is the label under which we are presenting the latest evolutionary stage of our equally exclusive and agile city sports car.
The starting point for this electrically powered city supercar is the revised smart EQ fortwo cabrio of model year 2020. The BRABUS Ultimate E Facelift thus continues the successful tradition of several generations of exclusive BRABUS supercars based on the smart fortwo models.
To this end the electric motor has been increased in output to 68 kW / 92 hp. In the sportiest of the four different driving modes the exclusive two-seater accelerates from 0 – 100 km/h in just 10.9 seconds. The top speed is limited to 130 km/h.
Every BRABUS Supercar stands for special driving pleasure through superior performance. The BRABUS Ultimate E Facelift city sports car is no exception. To achieve a significant increase in dynamics we developed a power boost for the three-phase synchronous motor of the smart fortwo EQ cabrio of model year 2020.
But the “Pocket Rocket” from BRABUS is not only impressive because of its dynamic alternative drive: the excitingly styled wide version with the BRABUS front apron redesigned especially for the facelift model gives the two-seater a particularly exciting design together with the 18-inch forged wheels. Equally extravagant is the cockpit with the luxurious BRABUS fine leather interior.
The BRABUS PowerXtra Performance Upgrade for the electric drive of the BRABUS Ultimate E Facelift includes a newly calibrated torque control system, special modules for the driving dynamics switch and accelerator pedal as well as a special gateway. The perfect synchronization of all these modifications releases the reserves that are inherent in this electric drive ex works.
The “driving fun switch” in the cockpit allows the driver to choose between four different driving modes. Level 1 corresponds to the standard electric motor of the current smart EQ fortwo. The “Eco” level reinforces recuperation, which means that when you step off the accelerator the two-seater brakes much more strongly than in the standard version. The level 3 stands for “Sport”. This means that the accelerator pedal reacts more spontaneously and recuperation is reduced to the standard level.
The BRABUS Ultimate E facelift in the “Sport +” program unleashes maximum dynamics: Here the peak power is increased to 68 kW / 92 hp, the maximum torque rises to 180 Nm, a proud 20 Nm more than in the series production. In this mode the driver not only enjoys the even more lively electric drive but also the even more direct response of the accelerator pedal.
Driving performance effortlessly lives up to its designation as an exclusive city sports car: Almost silently the BRABUS two-seater sprints from 0 – 100 km/h in just 10.9 seconds in “Sport +” mode. The top speed remains limited to 130 km/h.
In addition to its impressive performance on the road, this exclusive city sports car also offers maximum environmental compatibility because it is CO2-neutral. In keeping with its destiny as an agile city runabout, the BRABUS Ultimate E Facelift achieves a range of up to 125 kilometres on one battery charge, depending on driving style.
But the agile two-door model is not only impressive for its equally ecological and agile drive: it is also an eye-catcher par excellence! The smallest BRABUS Supercar owes this to its WIDESTAR body, which is exclusively reserved for vehicles in the limited BRABUS Ultimate special series. Individual special paint finishes are also available on request according to the wishes of the respective buyer. The BRABUS WIDESTAR bodyshell allows 7Jx18 wheels with 205/35 R 18 high-performance tires to be mounted on the front axle. There is even room for eight-inch wide rims with 235/30 R 18 tyres under the rear axle extensions. This combination provides particularly agile and safe handling. The sporty, comfortable BRABUS suspension system, which has been precisely tuned to the important parameters of weight, ultra-flat tires and wider track, plays a major role in this. The BRABUS Ultimate E Facelift city sports car naturally also includes an exclusively designed cockpit that is tailored down to the last detail to the wishes of the future vehicle owner in the in-house saddlery. Like every BRABUS fine leather.
