On the road: Smart Fortwo Ed | Technology | The Guardian

Smart Fortwo Ed Photograph: Simon Stuart-Miller From its debut 10 years ago, the Smart Fortwo has looked like a prototype for a future that is about to arrive but never does. Envisaged as a sort of 2CV for the 21st century, the Smart concept originated with Swatch, the watch company. It formed an alliance with Mercedes but when the project failed to live up to expectations, and ran up large financial losses, the Swiss timekeepers called time.

2005 smart forfour BRABUS review

Think smart; think small; think cute; think cuddly; think economical. Think SLOW! The smart forfour BRABUS comes with a 177bhp turbocharged 1.5-litre engine and seats four.

First things first: it’s smart, not Smart; it’s forfour, not Forfour, or even ForFour, and it’s most definitely BRABUS not Brabus or brabus. That last bit is important, the BRABUS contribution to the anti-smart is fully deserving of CAPITAL letters. Big, large ones. Your normal cooking smart forfour comes with a choice of 1.1, 1.3 and 1.5-litre petrol engines developing 75, 95 and 109bhp respectively, or a pair of 1.5-litre ...
