**SOLD**

Hello Luxury4Play,
For sale I have a STUNNING 2009 Smart Brabus ForTwo. To call this Smart highly modified and meticulously maintained would be an understatement. Every inch of this one of a kind, no expense spared build has been enhanced in one way or another. This vehicle was purchased several months ago in California, and has only seen 1,500 miles since then. I adore the car, only reason I am selling is I have my sights on a friend's classic Morris MINI and I do not have all enough garage space to store them all (or I would be!). Let me make clear, this is not a distressed sale in any way, so please do not message or phone me with low-ball offers. I have many photos of the car, and am more than happy to take any additional photos should an interested party ask for them.

History:
A friend of mine purchased this Brabus Smart as a fun and gas efficient Daily Commuter, however it did not stay stock for long. Over the course of the 3 and a half years he owned it, he added over $45,000 in OEM and VERY high end aftermarket parts. I am not kidding when I say there is not a single part on this car without a brand name. The goal behind this stunning build was not to make a gaudy, hideous show car that you see at the car shows (but would never actually drive), but to create a sophisticated, beautiful work of art Smart car. The car went through a serious transformation at C&C Collision in CA to become the ULTIMATE Brabus Smart Car (if you are not familiar with this shop they are one of the top body shops in the state, and specialize in rare, exotic and classic cars).

To replicate this car would require an extensive amount of time and money. The majority of the parts used are VERY rare and were imported from a European Brabus dealer. This car features a lot of top-notch parts seen on the European Brabus Ultimate 112R and Ultimate 120. This car itself has all the parts Brabus ever made for the Smart Car.

The interior was done in the richest alcantara suede and Napa leather. Not a single corner was cut in the making of the interior. Only top notch labor, material and parts were used, this is not a ghetto customized car you see on eBay with a poor craftsmanship. This car could literally pass for dealership new! Also, the car was never smoked in, and has never had food inside.

This exterior of this car is flawless; the entire front of the vehicle has had an Expel clear bra (including the lower valence wings and Brabus fog lights). The tridion cell and interior trim pieces where painted with a custom color used on the Brabus CLS Rocket 800 super sedans. This paintwork itself ran over $2,500 as the car was properly disassembled, prepped, and painted the right way by a well known and high end shop that specializes in a lot of exotics and hot rods. If parked next to a regular smart (or even another Brabus) you can clearly tell the new paint is worlds better, with no orange peel and lots of depth in the color. It is a very unique and beautiful color that gets TONS of compliments.

The pervious owner of the vehicle assured me it was never left outside or even driven in the rain and I have never found any evidence to prove this wrong. The car has only been in my garage since the day it was purchased, and is always stored cleaned. My garage is climate controlled (as was the pervious owner's garage), and the car has only left it's spot on special occasions. The previous owner had the car detailed after every drive (not a typo) and maintained to a like new finish. In addition it was always professionally detailed bi-weekly and the interior and exterior maintain a finish that is better than new. I have kept up this extensive cleaning structure and the car has only been cleaned by Eric Williams, the Professional detailer at Lamborghini Las Vegas. The car is free from any dents, scratches and the interior doesn’t show any sign of wear/stains and the wheels are free from any curb markings, scratches or bends.

Thank you very much! As far as exact BHP I'm unsure, however the Brabus itself is a considerable step up from a standard ForTwo. The added Catless header and Carlson Exhaust both ad plenty to the butt dyno!

Sharp lookin' Smart! Some really cool parts too!

While it'd be somewhat of a shame, given all of the hard work, someone could definitely make a few bucks by parting it out. GLWS.

Awesome looking car. My Buddy has a modded smart and I came in this thread hoping that I would have one too but the price is just way too out there. I wish you the best in luck in selling it though.

Thank you for all the kind words guys. This car has had a tremendous amount of blood, sweat and tears invested, as does any true passion-built project car. You really have to see it to believe it!

Cheers,

Bradley

Cool looking, however I drove one around for a day, it was the most uncomfortable car i've ever been in, and don't think I could ever spend that kinda money on a smart. But GLWS.
