Propulsion for the Smart Brabus Fortwo electric drive comes from an 80-horsepower version of the new Smart Fortwo electric drive’s electric motor. The motor makes 100 lb-ft of torque. Other performance enhancing modifications include a 10 mm lower ride height courtesy of the sport suspension, and a sport steering wheel with steering wheel gearshift. It also comes with a special Brabus sound module.
