Brabus not only brought a Tesla Roadster to the IAA 2009, but also a smart fortwo with a Tesla Roadster drive train. It was probably the first prototype that Tesla built for smart and from which the smart ED2 was later derived. It is said that Tesla had the order for Mercedes to build an electric fortwo and bought a fortwo from Mexico and provided it with the drive train of the Tesla Roaster at the time. Later the vehicle apparently came to Germany and ended up in Bottrop. I don't know if it still exists today, if you know something: Feel free to contact me
The Brabus Ultimate High Voltage study had 280 Nm of torque and 61 kW, a limited Roaster motor. It did 0-60 km/h in 3.7 seconds and reached a top speed of 130 km/h. The study was also equipped with a Brabus sound generator. This allowed the driver to choose between the engine sound of an American V8, thoroughbred racing car sound and spacey spherical tones. The noise was regulated by the movements of the accelerator pedal.
In the car's cup holder is a VDS ("Vehicle Display Screen"), the screen of the Tesla Roadster. People who experienced the vehicle at the time report that the Tesla drive train did not realize that it was in a smart. On the screen it thought he was a roadster. It has not been reported whether a chassis number of a roadster was also stored in the screen.
However, it is known that the smart had a range of around 100 km.
In addition to the technical data, the smart also featured extensive refinement by Brabus. In the spirit of the Ultimate smart fortwo, it was given its own special color, a body kit, wide rims and an elaborately designed interior.
The BRABUS ULTIMATE HIGH VOLTAGE was presented at the IAA together with an optically modified Tesla Roadster and became the figurehead of the newly founded "BRABUS Zero Emission" company.
