Exclusive special cabrio models, smart BRABUS tailor made, twinamic dual clutch transmission

New developments from smart at the 2015 International Motor Show in Geneva

Stuttgart/Geneva. Going out in style: the brand is bidding a fond farewell to a classic with two exclusive special models, the “smart fortwo edition MOSCOT” and the “smart fortwo edition flashlight”, based on the current smart cabrio. The two new smart fortwo and smart forfour model series will also be unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show. New features here include the smart BRABUS tailor made individualisation programme and the twinamic dual clutch transmission.

Under the banner “Keep moving – stay original!”, the designers from smart and the New York cult eyewear brand MOSCOT have created the special black and yellow “smart fortwo edition MOSCOT”, which will be produced in a limited run of 100 units. They have also designed the “LEMTOSH smart” glasses, which provide for perfect vision on the road in all weather conditions as part of the “MOSCOT smart Drive Package”. The most striking exterior feature of the “smart fortwo edition MOSCOT” is the combination of body panels in deep glossy black with a matt yellow tridion safety cell with a matt black accent stripe. The colour contrast between black and yellow also defines the interior of the “smart fortwo edition MOSCOT”: seats, knee pad, instrument cluster, door panelling and door pockets come in black leather. The exclusive two-seater cabrio is powered by the BRABUS 75 kW turbo engine.

A no less colourful special model of the smart cabrio is also set to herald in the spring: the “smart fortwo edition flashlight”. Matt crystal white or deep black are the exclusive bodypanel colours. The tridion safety cell always comes in lava orange, as do the door mirror caps. Other distinctive features include a black radiator grille, black 3-spoke alloy wheels with hub covers in contrasting lava orange, H7 projection headlights with titanium-coloured surrounds and the edition logo in the mirror triangle. The limited special model is available in Europe as a cabrio with petrol engine and electric drive.

From this year, the smart BRABUS tailor made individualisation programme will also be available for the new smart generation. Two customised smart fortwos and one smart forfour will provide an idea of the virtually endless scope available at the Geneva International Motor Show. Highlights include special paintwork in “lizard green”, “spring break orange” and “darknight blue” and the sporty tailor made exterior design for the two smart fortwos. The interior is further embellished by a customised nappa leather finish for the seats, dashboard and steering wheel rim.

A unique feature in the small and mini car segment is the twinamic dual clutch transmission, which combines the comfort of automatic gear-shifting in urban traffic with the option of manual operation. Manual gear-shifting is possible using the selector lever in a separate gate or by means of the shift paddles included in the Sports package. The smart fortwo rated at 52 kW/ 71 hp is the first model of the new smart generation to be available with this state-of-the-art dual clutch transmission.

smart fortwo now available for ordering with twinamic dual clutch transmission

Hands-on or automatic gear shifting

As the first model of the new smart generation, the smart fortwo rated at 52 kW/71 hp is now available for ordering with the twinamic dual clutch transmission. This enables gear shifting to be carried out either fully automatically or manually. Manual shifting is possible using the selector lever in a separate gate or by means of the shift paddles included in the Sports package. The additional charge for the twinamic in Germany in the standard version is 1275 euros (RRP, incl. 19% VAT); in combination with the passion, prime and proxy lines 1000 euros (RRP, incl. 19% VAT). The dual clutch transmission is available in combination with the passion, prime and proxy equipment lines. The first smart fortwos with twinamic will be delivered in March 2015.

The twinamic offers the advantage of particularly smooth gear changing without any interruption in tractive power. The smart fortwo rated at 52 kW/71 hp will be available with this state-of-the-art dual clutch transmission as of March 2015. With twinamic, the fortwo accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 15.1 seconds and reaches a top speed of 151 km/h. The combined fuel consumption stands at 4.1 litres of petrol per 100 kilometres, corresponding to a CO2 figure of 94 grams per kilometre.

The twinamic dual clutch transmission is unique in the small car and microcar segments and meets the wishes of all drivers who appreciate the convenience of an automatic transmission in urban traffic.

twinamic: Convenience coupled with efficiency

The twinamic automatic transmission is designed as a 3-shaft dual clutch manual transmission and has six forward gears and one reverse gear. Both clutch actuation and gear changing are fully automatic and enable particularly smooth shifting without any interruption in tractive power. The transmission operates fully automatically. Manual shifting is possible using the selector lever in a separate gate or by means of the shift paddles included in the Sports package.

Thanks to the two sub-transmissions, changing to the next highest or lowest gear is immediate and without any loss of tractive power. If required, the electronic controller skips individual gears instead of changing down through each individual gear. It therefore offers the comfort of an automatic transmission combined with the efficiency of a manual transmission.
