453 by Carlsson.

Quote:

German tuner Carlsson has released an aftermarket package for the latest Smart ForTwo.



It's their first take on the third-gen ForTwo which has gained a variety of cosmetic tweaks starting on the outside where there are custom front & rear spoilers along with a restyled rear apron with cutouts to make room for the quad pipes part of Carlssonís newly developed sports exhaust system. The ForTwo has ditched the stock wheels to make room for the tunerís 17-inch DS alloys with polished spokes while the lowering springs have brought the city car closer to the road by a few millimeters.



Stepping inside the cabin, the Smart ForTwo has received an aluminum pedal set, leather & Alcantara steering wheel, two-tone leather upholstery, custom floor mats and other minor bits and pieces to spice up an already funky cabin.



There arenít any changes in the engine department so you will have to wait until the Brabus version will be out likely later this year with an upgraded 0.9 TCe three-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine developing somewhere in the region of 120 HP (88 kW), up by 30 HP (22 kW) compared to the series version.
Carlsson will bring their modified Smart ForTwo to next week's Geneva Motor Show.

Why do I have a feeling that the 453 will never have the extreme level of exterior mods as the 451? I wonder if there's a way to give it a side skirt?

I expect it will receive a gynocentric miniskirt. Not a full-blown one. ;)

Sounds like it will be an "all or nun" option.

Those 17" wheels look very bulky in my opinion. They look like some cheap plastic wheel covers sold by "Pep Boys". Just my dime's worth.....

I love this interior! Much much better looking. I like the cookie-monster blue seat inserts a lot better than the rykš sneaker pastel blue of the proxy
