Think of Brabus and no doubt you’ll think of highly tuned Mercedes-Benz sports cars, but it’s a little-known fact that the best-selling Brabus of all-time didn’t feature the three-pointed-star at all. 

That car was the Smart ForTwo Brabus, introduced in 2003, and over 60,000 were sold between 2003 and 2012. 

It was a brilliant concept – while the original Smart was built for congested traffic situations and tight parking spots, Brabus thought it could turn the pint-sized car into a go-kart with a roof. And it achieved it…

After all, it’s not unlike a supercar in many respects, with a rear-engine, sequential gearbox and rear-wheel-drive.  

The two-seater received special styling treatment from the German tuner, too, with a restyled bumper and a pair of fog-lights installed next to the front grille. The clip-on outer panels were swapped for wider ones, with fatter arches to accommodate the six-spoke Brabus alloys that echoed those used on the AMG C63 C-Class, and a cheeky set of twin pipe exhausts stuck out of its rump. 

Inside, it got sports leather bucket seats with thicker bolsters than the regular ForTwo, and ABS and ESP were standardised. 

Meanwhile, the tiny three-cylinder ‘Suprex’ engine was upgraded to 75bhp, an increase of 16bhp over the mainstream Smart. It may not sound a lot, but it made a big difference. 

This one is a 2007 car – one of the last of the first-generation ForTwos – and has covered a meagre 24,000 miles from new, with a complete service history.

The smallest and most popular Brabus model is a guaranteed future classic, its cheeky styling matched by impressive handing improvements and pepped-up performance that make it a barrel-load of fun and a lot more lively than a standard Smart. 

This one is a particularly appealing example, thanks to its provenance and low mileage, full history and impeccably presented condition.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you\'re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
