A thinly camouflaged 2016 Smart ForFour by Brabus was spotted testing in Spain ahead of a IAA debut.

A thinly camouflaged 2016 Smart ForFour by Brabus was spotted testing in Spain.

The cute pocket rocket seems to be sitting lower than the regular ForFour which indicates Brabus is implementing a sportier suspension along with enlarged brakes and a dual exhaust setup. The prototype had some camouflage on the front and rear bumpers which will look a tad more aggressive than the stock ones and there could also be some other body changes that aren't visible on this near-production prototype.

We are not entirely sure what will power the Brabus-optimized ForFour, but most likely it will be an uprated specification of the three-cylinder, 0.9-liter TCe turbocharged gasoline engine upgraded from the series 90 PS (66 kW) to somewhere in the region of 120 - 130 PS (88 - 96 kW).

The Renault Twingo is about to get the same array of enhancements for the upcoming GT version which could be showed in mid-September at IAA alongside the beefier ForTwo and ForFour duo.
