Suzuki Kizashi Turbo Concept Official Info and Pictures
The hot vehicle was developed by Road Race Motorsports, one of the top Suzuki aftermarket performance parts supplier and is based on a pre-production Kizashi GTS.
The car’s 2.4 liter four pot powerplant has kept its stock cylinder heads and block, but has received a 16G turbocharger and an in-house designed high flow intercooler, together with a custom fuel management system, a blow-off valve, a Velocity air intake and Extreme spray injector. The turbo uses a custom equal length manifold, while the 38mm wastegate is supplied by Tial.
The engine, which developed 185 hp when it left the Suzuki factory, now offers a delicious 290 hp.
But the car is not all about power, as it uses Road Race sport springs and a set of 19 inch Dunlop tires. In addition to that, the Kizashi Turbo Concept comes with a Delta tech Engineering rear spoiler that increases its high speed stability.
“After an impressive performance preview of Suzuki’s 2010 Kizashi at last fall’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, the heightened fun (on closed course, with professional driver) continues with the debut of Kizashi’s concept turbocharged variant. As seen - beginning this month - with racer Tommy Kendall and his Speed Channel program “Test Drive,” this newest Kizashi concept morphs the intended definition of Kizashi from the Japanese - “something great is coming” – into “what might be coming next?” stated the press release.
