Italy is one of the countries most connected to fashion and style, while the cities are crowded with heavy traffic. It is not surprising that for this reason Italy is one of the main markets of the smart fortwo. Aznom is a company of handbags and other artifacts that decided to give the little German a touch more Italian and personal, thus creating the so-called smart fortwo Montenapo by Aznom.
The modifications affect the small smart fortwo both on the outside and inside, although the most noticeable changes are inside. The body receives a matte graygraycolor, while the tridion cell also appears in anthracite color, providing that touch of contrast so characteristic of smart models. In pillar B we find the inscription Montenapo.
Inside the changes are more evident and Aznom has demonstrated its abilities by completely quilting the seats, the steering wheel, the door panels and even the dashboard. The tapestry achieves a calm environment with a combination of high quality brown leather and fabric with black lines of the Ermenegildo Zegna. Also some brown plastic elements are found.
One of the peculiarities of the smart fortwo Montenapo by Aznom is in its trunk, since in the lower compartment it hides a special space for two glasses of champagne and a bottle of Bollinger Spécial Cuvée. To take advantage of the luggage space and Aznom being a company specialized in the manufacture of handbags, includes a matching handbag with the car.
The exclusive model is a unique unit, equipped with the 71 hp 1.0 engine coupled to a twinamic dual clutch automatic transmission. The luxury car dealer Magni& Carnevale Motors of Milan was in charge of finding a new home for smart.

2015 – SMART FORTWO LORINSER
Smart has always had Brabus as its official coach, who is in charge of spicing up their models. The preparer is already working on the new generation of the little German, but it was Lorinser the first coach who dared to give the smart fortwo a spicy touch. And it does so not only through the body, but also through mechanical preparation.
Lorinser equipped the new smart fortwo in a more sporty outfit. The kit consists of a new lower part for the front bumper, new side skirts and a rear that highlights a new diffuser with two central exhaust.
The 17-inch wheels are black in color and match well with the aesthetics of the Fortwo, leaving the model with a sporty and personalized look. To finish the set, Lorinser proposes a new kit of springs capable of reducing the height of the body in no less than three centimeters.
It is not exaggerated in its forms, nor is it in power. Lorinser set about tinkering with the smart Fortwo’s 0.9 turbo engine to extract some extra horses that improved its performance. The small urban now has a 105 hp and 160 Nm of torque, with a gain of 15 hp and 25 Nm of torque compared to the standard engine.
Additionally, the preparer offers a sports exhaust system, and for those seeking a distinctive image, also a personalization package that includes colors and combinations for body and interior as well as new materials.

smart: functionality as a principle
Combining concern for the environment with a positive attitude and joy of living, the smart fortwo was the milestone of creating a differentiated category of automobiles, which unites the comfort provided to its users with reduced external dimensions, requiring less space in the streets and parking lots.
The smart fortwo was designed from a basic principle: space for two occupants and their luggage. At less than 2.70 meters in length, it offers an unexpected internal space for those watching from the outside, providing a comfortable and extremely safe ride.
The comfort level and ergonomics of the smart are comparable to those of medium-sized cars, always surprising those who experience it for the first time. This comfort level is achieved through intelligent features such as seat positioning, slightly offset longitudinally to provide more room for passengers’ shoulders.
The smart fortwo has also created new safety parameters for small cars. Its occupants travel inside a rigid safety cell, the tridion, which wraps the interior of the car like a walnut. The structure is reinforced at strategic points and more than 50% of it is made of high strength steel. In the event of a collision, the longitudinal and transverse elements of the tridion evenly distribute the impact forces around the body, while the wheels also function as zones of deformation and energy absorption.
Active safety is guaranteed by the esp (electronic stability program), which also incorporates the hill start assist function, which prevents the car from retreating when starting on climbs. Brakes are anti-locking (ABS), while maintaining maneuverability in cornering braking and reducing immobilization distance, especially on slippery floors. An additional assist system, hydraulic brake assist, enhances the braking force whenever the driver is detected to have triggered the brake quickly, but not sufficiently firmly for emergency situations.
