2005 Smart ForFour Brabus
The vendor has kindly supplied the following information.
Smart produced and sold just under 300 Brabus ForFour models in the UK over 2005-07 in either Jet Black or Starlight Silver paint finish with full black leather interior.
The cars are distinguished by their Brabus tuned 1.5 litre engines which produce 175 bhp and deliver very strong performance. The Brabus styling kit included a bodykit; Monobloc IV alloys; sports twin exhaust; and numerous unique interior upgrades including the chunky leather steering wheel; alloy pedals; and leather seats with embossed Brabus logo.
I have owned KS05 OZX since April 2013 during which time the car has had light but regular use. With a sub-7 second 0-62mph time it is a joy to drive. On the other hand, driving sensibly, it is easy to exceed 40mpg because the car is so light and the engine so flexible. The gear ratios are set up for performance rather than economy and changes are effortless.
It is also a very practical car. The rear seat slides to increase either passenger or luggage space. To maximise carrying capacity the rear seats also fold forward leaving a large cargo area that can be accessed through both the tailgate and rear doors.
This car also has the Mercedes CD SatNav I upgraded music system with sub-woofer fitted as an optional extra when new.
This car has had a number of new I replacement parts in during my ownership the most recent items being:
- Brand New Stainless Cat back exhaust system fitted in
Aug1.1st 2018. Lifetime warranty - cost £450.
- Replacement rear brake calipers (TRW) - both sides in
