PS - guess Peter's original post was not so much false as it was......true.
...and premature. I wouldn't think SmartUSA would want information about new items - like Brabus - being announced on this broad a scale before the word is official.

Oh, I hate that word premature. :D

I guess my point is somebody posted in big black letters the info was false - it wasn't. And who knows what smart thinks about when this info was posted? :)

We are also getting two Brabus display cars - a coupe and a cabriolet at Smart Center Alexandria. Our cabriolet is due in November and our Coupe is scheduled for the end of January.
It is curious why smartusa would even bother to do this....afterall I bet by the time the demos show up in the showrooms, all of them will already be snatched up by current reservation holders!

(OF course, if the price tag is $30K....or the US bound Brabus does not have the turbo....I'll probably have to eat my words!) :p

Afraid I may have to wish you: "bon appétit"... But, let's wait until a recipient of the "special offer" goes through the steps and can post. :wink:

Less than 1500 Brabus units. Black/Black or Silver/Silver. Only offered to current reservation holders, in order, who have NOT configured. The Brabus configuration widow will only be open for a short time to that reservation holder. A full line of Brabus accessories will be offered. NO TURBO

Also if this info is true...so the Brabus smart will have the rims, kit, interior accessories and all except it will have the same enginge and horsepower as the basic Smarts? Also what is the price range for the Brabus. If you can tell me this info and the source I would appreciate it.

I think what is happening is if you hold a reservation you can configure a true blue Barabus, but if you dont you can buy all the accessories to make your smart look like one.

So, I reserved today # 1757


We will see if I get a chance to convert my rez to the Brabus!
