The 3cyl Brabus Roadster is supposed to be around £17-18,000 when it goes on sale in september, so I would expect the V6 to be around £25-30,000 if/when it goes into full production.

Nice try, but I've been drawn into that argument far too many times before! :cool:

Oh sod it - here goes...

AFAIK the only "real" merc's that offer >200bhp/ton? are the "55 AMG" and "32 AMG" versions, which cost considerably more than 30k :D

Yeah, why would you spend that much on a Fisher Price car? :)

Andy ... important to consider the weight WITH the driver, don't you think ?

That's gonna hurt your BHP per tonne ratio :p :p

There were two Smart Roadsters at the local dealership last week when I took the car in for trouble-shooting. One was black and silver the other red & silver like the car pictured above. They looked really funky :) That BRABUS V6 turbo special looks fantastic, shame there weren't any of those kicking about the dealer last week.

Looks very nice

Would look even better in my garage next to the BRABUS 190.

Looks a bit like the BMW Z M3 thingy

Don't be under any illusions - Brabus created this beast, even though its under the Smart/MB name - they created the Smart-Brabus GmbH partnership a while ago, to do such stuff as this. The "official" (ie. on sale to the public) Brabus version of the roadster is basically the standard car with the usual Brabus accoutrements wheels, exhaust, pedals, gearknob, and a 95bhp remap - it was announced at the Geneva motorshow this year.
