Germany-based Carlsson Autotechnik is a tuning outfit that specialize only in three-pointed star machines. From the the entry-level Mercedes-Benz A-Class to the S and V-Class, Carlsson tunes them all.
The Merzig-headquartered company has now rolled out a tuning program baptized Carlsson Smart Fortwo CK10 and, just as expected, we are dealing with quite a rowdy little bugger. At the present moment information is scarce on this nearly Brabus-alike vehicle, so our eyes will have to suffice.

With full information to become available after Carlsson debuts the Smart Fortwo CK10 next week in Geneva, let’s go through what exterior enhancements have been operated to the city car. Though it retains the visual and chromatic identity of the standard model, the elements that strike you most are the black grille and the 17-inch alloys shod in low-profile tires.

Look more closely and you’ll also sport a tiny front lip spoiler as well. The moment you see the rear of the Renault Twingo-underpinned machine, you’ll be left speechless by the quad exhausts incorporated in a tiny aerodynamic diffuser. Lastly, there’s a cheeky-looking roof-edge spoiler which adds more visual drama.

We don’t know if this thing’s three-pot putter was enhanced, but we are able to identify a racy gear knob and hand brake lever combo. The cabin also received some blue Alcantara for good measure, while the last enhancement comes in the form of a set of aluminum pedals.

So what will it be? This Carlsson CK10 or the standard 2015 Smart Fortwo we reviewed?
