designed for the smart fortwo BRABUS. The luxurious interior features stylish
velour floor mats embroidered with the "edition" logo and many other upgrades

instruments and brushed aluminium sports pedals.
Truly an exclusive offering, this special 10th Anniversary Edition is an
appropriate way for smart to mark 10 years of defining a new car category.

the end of April and these lucky reservation holders will have the opportunity
to take delivery of their new 10th Anniversary Edition at their local smart
