After previewing two of their Geneva-bound works – the Brabus Rocket and the Brabus SLS – the German tuning company has released the first official photo of their third and final Geneva offering: the Brabus Smart ForTwo Ultimate.

For a company that specializes on upgrading Mercedes and Maybach vehicles, Brabus doesn’t always get to work on Smart-branded vehicles. As a matter of fact, the Smart ForTwo Ultimate will only be the second Smart vehicle to be tuned by Brabus, after the Ultimate 101 back in 2006.

Details behind the overall package are still being withheld, but unlike the two other vehicles headed for Geneva, Brabus decided to release a photo of the Ultimate Smart ForTwo in all its glory. Looking at the photo, you’ll notice that the car comes in the same matte gray body finish as the two other vehicles. There also appears to be some hints of carbon fiber on the car as well as some fancy – at least as far as Smart standards are concerned – set of Brabus machined-alloy wheels on the car. While they have yet to release information on what’s under the car’s hood, we’ve been informed that the Ultimate Smart ForTwo will also come with a modified engine.

The Smart Ultimate, together with the Brabus Rocket and the Brabus SLS, will make their debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. Be sure to check back with us to find out more information on this decked-out Smart ForTwo when details become available.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

The Brabus Smart is really looking so cute on its platform. Well, I just only hope that they would put this one in production, and I will surely be looking forward to seeing this in the future.

A mini car? I think it is not a mini car. It is bigger than a mini car but smaller than a
mid-size car so it is simply called a compact car. smiley By the way, why is it called Ultimate? The
only ultimate here is the name of the tuning company because they also handle Mercedes.

Well it definitely interesting to see Brabus playing around with a Mini. I am a bit used to the tuning firm working on big ones. And I can say that the work on the Mini is really great.

I was expecting more than a simple facelift to the old Smart. From time to time they should revolutionize the design. I just feel the old Smart is too old.
