The Racing Edition was modelled on the looks of the V6 Roadster that Smart built at the cost of £75,000! Commonly referred to as the RCR standing for Roadster Coupe Racing.


Inside the seats are leather with red stitching to match the exterior.  


Controls and instruments have red accents to complete the luxurious finish.


Only 50 RCRs were made, each with its own, individual badge on the dashboard – 01/50, 02/50 etc. – showing its place in the production run.


The BRABUS SB2 power upgrade kit was a no cost option, however some dealers may not have fitted it, some customers may not have been aware of the option!  Without it the car has 80 bhp,  with it 90 bhp.


NOTE:  Just seven left hand driver RCR-90’s were built for the European market, and just one of those had 18" BRABUS Monoblock VI wheels. Twelve left hand drive RCR-101’s were made for the european market.  The RCR-101 had the 101bhp Brabus engine in it instead.  None of those were sold or advertised in the UK.
