Oh, the possibilities . . .
The Independent's review of the Smart Forfour Brabus is one of the most encouraging reviews on the bland ForFour sub-compact I have read in a while. Just when the brand was beginning to look insignificant, they release an eco friendly 177hp mini M5. Brabus, a German tuner and car manufacturer specializing in Mercedes Benzes, has taken the ForFour and turned it into a devilish little motor car. Able to do 0-60 in under 7.0 seconds, the ForFour looks like a Smart car entering puberty. While Mercedes-Benz continues to deliberate over the fate of Smart and its role in America's automotive market, we hope the positive press the ForFour is getting will help Mercedes realize that there is a market for these cars in America. Especially when they are as capable as the Smart ForFour Barbus.
