used car of the day 2018 smart fortwo brabus

Aftermarket tuners have never met a car they couldn't turn into a higher-performance version -- or, at least, a car that looks sportier. Such is the case with Brabus and the Smart ForTwo.

This seller has an electric Smart ForTwo with a bunch of Brabus body work done to it -- and they are asking for $18,500.

The list is extensive -- check it out at the posting -- and full of carbon fiber.

Not only does the car have what the seller calls "Brabus-ized" looks, but it also has only 11,400 miles on the clock.

If the Smart ForTwo tickles your fancy -- and while many disdain the little urban runabout, there are fans of it out there -- perhaps this modified unit is just your speed.

    About a mile from me lives a couple with about the only bulletproof use case I've ever seen for Smart fortwos.

    They live in a small house on an arterial street that is relatively narrow and has no curb parking on either side (all the space is devoted to travel lanes). Behind their house is a steep downward slope, which also means there are no side streets within about 500 feet of them on either side. The house has a tiny driveway that can't be extended because the house itself is in the way. Their two Smart fortwos, parked just right, fit in the driveway by a matter of inches. If it weren't for the fortwos, they could only park one car within half a mile or so of their house.

    There is nothing else that justifies a smart fortwo over the competition.

  • ChristianWimmer I don’t want this autonomous driving garbage technology in any car.My main fear is this. Once this technology is perfected, freedom-hating eco hysterical governments (crap hole Germany, UK and the European Union in general) will attempt to ban private car ownership because “you don’t need to own a car anymore since the car can come to you, drop you off and then proceed to service the next customer”... no thanks. Having your own car is FREEDOM.Go away, autonomous driving. I also enjoy the act of driving a car. I want to drive, not be driven.
  • Mike-NB2 The solution is obvious here. Everyone should be raised in an Irish Catholic family and then all it takes is a sideways glance from mom and you're atoning for that sin for the rest of your life. My mother has been dead for decades and I still want to apologize to her. Catholic guilt is a real thing. 😁
  • Wjtinfwb A good car. I don't find Accord's as appealing as they were a decade or two ago, not that they've gotten worse, but the competition has gotten better. It would be my choice if I had to pay for it myself and maintain it for 10 years and 150k miles. They'd be very reliable and no doubt inexpensive miles, but probably a pretty boring 10 years.
  • Lou_BC "augmented reality" Isn't that a mamoplasty?
  • Lou_BC Nice to see car companies still building cars. If I ever desired a new car, a Camry and Accord would be on the list if not the only 2 cars on the list. Who else makes a decent 4 door sedan?
