At way under 1000 kg (2200 pounds), the Brabus variant of the lilliputian smart fortwo doesn't need a lot of engine, so the nutters from Bottrop (read: Brabus engineers) only squeezed 102 hp from its turbocharged three-cylinder.
Most people would probably be more than satisfied with that amount of power from a car that uses half the parking space of large SUV.

“Most” as in “not all”, obviously, as there are still plenty of people for whom there is no such thing as “enough power”. The French from Digi Services has a slight cure for those smart fortwo Brabus owners that desire juts a little bit more, and it comes in the form of some ECU tuning.

The tiny fortwo in the following dyno video has had its ECU tinkered with by the aforementioned company and it now offers 117 hp and 179 Nm (132 lb ft) of torque.

While those numbers might provoke laughter for some, please keep in mind that the stock Brabus model isn't exactly a slouch when accelerating from a stop light either.
