Pocket and rocket. And lets move on.Actually, its been just over 15 years sinceBRABUS, long-time creator of the most potent examples of Mercedes in existence has been heating-up Smarts, so this BRABUS125R, of which just 125 will be built, is something of a celebration model.Its based on theClub Sport track-day version of the Fortwo that BRABUScreated for a media event at the fearsome Bilster Berg race track in Germany in 2017, and the 'Pocket Rocket' moniker isnt just a silly nickname, as its also a link to the remarkable2006Mercedes CLS-based BRABUSRocket V12-engined missile, which set a world speed record for four-door saloons.The BRABUS125R sees its 898cc turbocharged three-cylinder engine upped to an output of 125PS (123bhp / 92 kW) and 148lb-ft (200 Nm) of torque. Thats up from the 71bhp (53 kW) and 67lb-ft (91 Nm) ofthe standard version and is said to be enough to send it scampering to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 9.2 seconds and on to an electronically limited top speed of 109 mph (175 km/h).To achieve thiskind of performance, BRABUSdeveloped a modified intake system, an even more efficient intercooler, and a recalibrated engine control unit. For further performance optimisation and for an especially sporty sound at the touch of a button, the engine was fitted with a stainless-steel BRABUSsport exhaust system with actively controlled flaps. To match the three cylinders of the engine, this exhaust system features three centre-exiting exhausts.The wheels are 16-inch mono-block alloys at the front, with 17-inch versions at the back, fitted with bespoke Yokohama high-performance tyres. The suspension has been lowered by 30mm and fitted with BRABUSsports springs. Outside, there is a front spoiler, side sills and exhaust surrounds, along with carbon-fibre wing mirror covers.It hasalso fitted out the interior to BRABUSstandards, proving that 'luxury'neednt equate with 'large.'The cabin gets contoured sports seats, with contrasting red seams and diamond quilting, and theres a red 12 oclock marking on the leather steering wheel. Theres also a carbon-fibre look for the dashboard, anodised gear shift paddles and handbrake lever, and velour floor mats with the BRABUSlogo.The car presented here is a 2018 Smart BRABUSForTwo 125R coup, number 103 of 124, that wasUK registered inDecember 2018 and bought new then by our privateer vendor. He is the car's one and only owner. As he understandsit, this is the only 125Rproduced in coupform with a panoramic roof (as opposed to a cabriolet, which the remainder of the examples are). With just 2,600 miles covered, the car does not require a service until 10,000 miles and presents in remarkable condition.Only used sparingly and always garaged, this is a real opportunity to own a real BRABUS product, at what is, relatively, a fraction of what their more common vehicles sell for. A properly engineered micro-car which punches well above its weight!2018 Brabus 125R ForTwo Coupe (Pano-roof)https://youtu.be/jG9l8XtFOC8false
