smart USA Promotes fortwo Brabus Drifting on Three Wheels

With around half a year until an all-new generation of the tiny smart fortwo is to arrive into the spotlight, the current model is still showing signs of life in the US, despite the somewhat lukewarm reception that it received from most 'muricans who love big ol' trucks and deepfried food.

Part of the model's resurrection into the foreground will probably be the following commercial, which in short (pun intended) is trying to emphasize the smart fortwo's nimbleness in traffic.

The fun bit is that the red fortwo Brabus isn't running through traffic in the ad, but a multi-storey car park. Oh, did we say running? Because the lilliputhian city car is downright hooned in this short commercial, with a couple of sequences showing it on three wheels or performing handbrake turns.

Naturally, most smart fortwo customers didn't buy their car to do the amount of shenanigans presented in the video below, but the fact that smart USA is trying to market the model as being fun to drive - even if we're only talking about low speeds here – is something to be commended and proving that you don't need hundreds of horsepower to have some good old fun behind the wheel.

Keep in mind that you only have a few months until the third generation of the car will make its debut, a model which should be even better at city driving mainly thanks to a record-breaking turning circle. We have already showed you a reasonable amount of spy shots and even spy videos with the new car, but until that one arrives, remember that the current one is not too shoddy either.
