Well, clearly the disguise is appearing to be a regular C453, the production ones will have the Brabus stuff they always have, so making the Fortwo Brabus look like a Prime, that`s smart :D

So...since there not going to have performance improvements in the Brabus (Am I wrong on this?) this really doesn't show anything but a different exhaust that would make it a Brabus.


Edit...My comments only have to do with the US because anything available in Europe that has merit will probably just stay in Europe.

Literally the first line of the articles is "Up to 120 HP", so performance improvements there will be. Whether we get them in NA is a different question entirely. As ALSRAC noted, by not having any Brabus parts on, it will let them test the performance differences without attracting a huge amount of attention.

New article about it:

To be revealed in April

The Brabus-prepared Smart ForTwo has been caught on camera once again while testing ahead of next year's launch.
Today we found out the Smart ForTwo tweaked by Brabus will be unveiled in April next year and now we take a better look at the city which is bound to get a more aggressive body. Aside from the camouflaged front and rear spoiler lips, the higher-powered ForTwo will also boast a dual exhaust arrangement, darker headlights, slightly updated front grille and beefier alloy wheels.
It will also ride lower than the regular model thanks to a stiffer suspension and is bound to pack a three-cylinder 0.9-liter turbocharged gasoline engine upgraded to approximately 120 HP (88 kW), up by 30 HP (22 kW) compared to the stock ForTwo.
The same treatment will be applied on the more practical ForFour while the unreleased ForTwo Cabrio (due in April) will also likely receive the attention of Brabus.
