The smart roadster was launched in the UK in September 2003 with the new brand slogan 'Open Your Mind'. With the introduction of the roadster you are now able to 'Open Your Roof' at the touch of a button and re-live the roadster driving experience of the 1950's and 1960's.
At the beginning of 2004 smart introduced BRABUS versions of the smart roadster and roadster-coupe which combine sporty performance with an exclusive finish.
The roadster's philosophy is a modern take on a classic design and coupled with its curvaceous balanced proportions and high level of standard safety equipment - smart have 'digitally re-mastered' the sports car.
Nothing about this car is standard and it screams 'look at me' so if you're a shrinking violet we suggest you stick to the standard version as the roadster BRABUS attracted more attention than any other car we have driven.
