Yellowhat I know, this is one of the great mysteries of the world. For me it runs alongside the decision to make the top of the range infotainment centre software, only properly compatible with (in my opinion) the "second" most popular phone system in the world. Android

Take no notice of me, I just use a little known device called an iPhone.

The debate will run and run....Not looking to get flamed here by the way

jwight At least you have the option - we'll never see the BRABUS (or the forfour) in the US.

Yellowhat Don't feel like I'm missing out on anything. To be honest, if I wanted a "sports car" I certainly wouldn't be looking at a smart. I love my new smart car as much as I did the previous one. Maybe even more so. Nice seats though.

Incochief I wonder why the current thinking is to not bring these guys to North America. They really are exciting and I can see that it would open more doors to folks interested in the brand.
Even the Fourfour looks good and those rims are terrific looking as well.
Perhaps the real issue is being able to manufacture all of those variants to satisfy the demand.

Mike T Maybe the manual is a free option....but I doubt it. The manual would probably be closer to the 451 BRABUS in acceleration, maybe even.

Smart’s six-speed dual clutch Twinamic gearbox, which comes as standard on all three new Brabus models
If this is accurate, I won't be buying a BRABUS.

Mike T 0-100 km/h in 9.5 compares very unfavourably with the old 451 BRABUS, which officially did it in 8.9 seconds. That extra mass is taking a toll, or something is amiss...

At least the top speed of 165 km/h is reasonable.

jwight As close as we'll get unless somebody at smart wakes up.
