Just read with horror what a German blog wrote:
Smart BRABUS joint venture contracts expire in 2021 (German article)
.. if they would actually not agree on new contracts, I would personally find that extremely regrettable. Not only because then things like a Brabus ULTIMATE E Concept will never come again, but also because a special feature of smart would then be lost. Personally, I actually really appreciate the special editions. They were always great cars with a creative touch. I also always enjoyed seeing what people did with the Tailormade program.
Sure, what comes from Brabus was never cheap, but that was never the reason why the community loved the Brabus smart cars. I sincerely hope that new contracts will come with the new models. Smart must not give up such a unique selling point as the cooperation with Brabus again.
