Suzuki Grand Vitara Prepared for the 2011 SEMA Show by OTC Students

Students from the Ohio Technical College (OTC) are penciling a new ambitious project in collaboration with American Suzuki Motor Corporation. The student’s team will will be customizing a Suzuki Grand Vitara with a nautical inspired theme providing a crossing bridge between between Suzuki’s automotive and marine divisions.

The upgrades planed for the Grand Vitara include custom paint, a suspension lift kit, oversized wheels and tires, shaved door handles, fender extensions, hood scoop and a bull bar front bumper. On the exterior the car will be fitted with LED headlamps and driving lights, front mounted winch, rear mounted trailer hitch, LED tailgate bar and under body lights, plus other features like an interior mounted fridge and DVD headset entertainment system.

As a radical makeover the Grand Vitara will have its roof removed and twin Suzuki outboard motors will be installed at the back for a more boat like look. This is the second project on a vehicle for OTC. The first one being a “Hot Wheels” 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air which was ordered by Vic Edelbrock Jr.

"After a successful project build with the 1957 Chevy Bel Air for industry veteran Vic Edelbrock, we were very excited to start this project vehicle with Suzuki. This project will provide OTC students in our Automotive and Custom Paint and Graphics programs with another unique learning opportunity in vehicle modification" as OTC’s director of enrollment management, Tom King revealed on the Ohio Technical College website. The custom Suzuki Grand Vitara will make its entrance at the 2011 SEMA show in Las Vegas, NV at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
