Only 50 Of These Brabus 92R Performance Electric Smart Cars Will Be Built
They pack more power and torque and also get the bold Brabus exterior and interior styling too.
Do you want an electric Smart ED ForTwo, but the standard car is a bit too boring for you? Well, maybe Brabus has the answer with its latest interpretation of the Smart EV formula called the 92R.
Brabus has upgraded the Smart’s Sport+ driving mode so it now delivers 92 horsepower and 180 Nm (133 pound-feet) of torque, allowing the vehicle to sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph) from nought in 10.9 seconds, before topping out at the same 130 km/h (81 mph). Without the Brabus tuning, a Smart ED makes 80 horsepower and 160 Nm (118 pound-feet) and it takes 11.5 seconds to complete the same benchmark sprint.
So even though Brabus calls this model a supercar for the city its performance is only marginally better than the regular model. What sets the 92R apart, though, is the way it looks, thanks to a unique grille and front bumper, side skirts and rear bumper. All have red accents and they help set the car apart from non-Brabus models, as do the typical Brabus wheels fitted to it.

The Brabus touch is also plainly visible inside too. The seats are clad in red leather, they get big B logos in the headrests and the steering wheel gets red stitching to match. We also noticed unique Brabus-branded mats, dead pedal, and there’s a small plaque on the dashboard announcing this vehicle is one of fifty.
Each of these Brabus 92R tuned Smarts will cost €46,284 (roughly equivalent to $55,000), but even though that may seem like a lot (it’s more than twice the price of a standard Smart ED), all 50 examples will surely be snapped up by collectors – we don’t actually think regular car buyers would even conceive of paying this much for a Brabus-badged model, when the standard car (that already looks quite sporty and is almost as quick) is less than half the price.
