German tuning company Brabus is to present a hot concept version of the ForFour at the Essen Motor Show.

However, Brabus says that this does not mean that a racing version of the smart forfour is soon to be launched on the market.

The concept car has a turbo engine delivering 154 kW and the maximum torque exceeds 300 Nm. Top speed is more than 235km/h and it rockets from 0-100km/h in 6.4 seconds.

To ensure optimal conversion of the engine power to traction for a car with this engine output, the developers have fitted the transmission with a differential lock.

The concept car furthermore has a racing brake system that is served by a new master brake cylinder and completely fills the 17 inch rims.
