German tuner specialist Carlsson, known for its performance upgrades on Mercedes-Benz models also has an interest in the smart city brand and accompanying the new generation fortwo comes an aftermarket package.
The package, unveiled publicly during the 2015 edition of the Geneva motor show will be the company’s first try on the recent third generation fortwo – and features a wide array of design alterations. Included are exterior design tweaks such as custom front & rear spoilers and an updated rear apron that house the quad pipe exhaust system that was newly developed by Carlsson. The stock alloy rims of the model have been axed in favor of the tuner’s 17-inch DS range that has polished spokes and ride and handling will benefit from the lowered springs that make the fortwo sit closer to the road by a few millimeters. The interior of the smart fortwo has been adorned with a leather/Alcantara steering wheel, a set of aluminum pedals, two-tone leather upholstery, new floor mats and other features to spice things up.
On the performance part the tuner has opted to leave out any engine modification for now. So, we’re actually keenly expecting the Brabus version of the model that should come with a tweaked 0.9 TCe three-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine that rumors put at 120 HP (88 kW) a full 30 hp jump from the power level offered from the factory.
