New member on the hunt for a clean/maintained 451 Brabus Cabriolet. I was told beggars can’t be choosers so I am fine with Silver or Black. I am not a Smart expert so I would be open to other colors should those have been made in the later years of the 451. I would highly prefer one in the upper Midwest as location could be a barrier to entry. There is one close by right now but it has been in a rear end accident, is not currently running and in my opinion is over priced. Speaking of price that in some regard could be a barrier to entry. My wife isn’t thrilled with me be hell bent on finding/buying one of these (I know that will change once it is in the family) so since this would be a 3rd vehicle she sees it as completely a self indulgent purchase for myself. Under the right circumstance I would consider a coupe but highly prefer the cabriolet...unless someone can convince me otherwise. I also just missed out on an amazing deal on one of those as well. Again I know I am asking for the world. I would be willing to travel for the right one or hire and inspection company and have it trucked back to WI where I am at. Any help, insight, foresight, etc is appreciated. I am completely new to this scene but am highly obsessed with the notion of this purchase. My alternative is a Fiat 500C Abarth which would check the boxes to some extent but for some reason I love the novelty and uniqueness of the Brabus Smart Cab. Thanks in advance for any info/help/advice you can provide a future new owner.
