Linky has been fixed.

2013 Smart fortwo in Los Angeles, CA | Keyes European

NEW, that smart fortwo BRABUS tailor made with custom BRABUS paint, upholstery and other options likely had a Monroney sticker of near $30,000.

This pre-owned smart has been in their inventory for just under a month with a rather lofty asking price. My guess, something south of $20,000 and your wife will love you.

Personally, NOT feeling the love for cotton candy pink . . .

Why is the car so priced so high?
"Not just any smart" but the ultimate BRABUS built smart!

You may want to start with who is BRABUS?

Brabus - tuning for smart

For those who may not be familiar with BRABUS Tailor-Made we're talking custom detailing of a smart by BRABUS . . .

The Brabus Tailor Made Program was introduced to give smart owners literally anything they want in their cars.

In Europe you name it, and for a price they'll do it.

More power? No problem. Make your smart ED sound like a V8 muscle car? Easy as PI. Alcantara, exotic leathers, surround sound, iPads, real carbon fibre, every panel a different, unique colour? As long as you have the dough, they'll do anything you ask...

In the US? Same deal, only you can't do anything to the engine...maybe not unless you sell your soul and bank account to Brabus... :wink:

Someone here should start collecting the VINs of Tailor-Made cars. I am puzzled by the missing smart badges etc. Usually those would be reattached at Bottrop after the car is done.

Here a better look at the interior...

White would be almost impossible to keep clean in real world driving situations!

Strange exterior color...interior combo is not much better???


24K asking price...not a chance...tough sell at 18K!!

For $79k, a brand new Corvette, or really nice late model Porsche, or 4 brand new Abarths.
Maybe, one Abarth, and a new Alfa 4C, and have some change for a used smart car.

Bring a big checkbook for ultimate 120 . . .

. . . that red one would cost $79,232* USD
At resale, depreciation on a smart fortwo BRABUS Tailor-Made or ultimate 120 could be ugly unless you are dealing with someone who knows their smarts and is willing to PAY because they believe this one to be rare or collectible?

The U.S. version VIN # doesn't designate "limited edition," it is just another 451 Passion with nothing other than badging to support the BRABUS, Tailor Made or ultimate 120, moniker?

SWAG, with so few miles the pink Tailor Made (OP) was ("designed" by Stevie Wonder?) for a car show in Cali?

Not that it justifies the cost, remember that the RED $79,232 EURO version BRABUS ultimate 120 is not only over the top in exterior/interior equipment, it has that hottie TURBO engine (capable of 0-120 km/h in 8.9 sec) that BIG BROTHER protects us from.

* EXPORT price of € 48.942,43 = $66,748 USD is discounted as it does not include VAT - heck that's a $12,784 discount, write the check!
