Though Suzuki may be considered a small force in the huge North American car marketplace, the Hamamatsu, Japan-based automaker understands the vitality and attractiveness of the aftermarket industry. For the second year in a row, it brings a range of modified models to the Las Vegas Convention Center. Here they are:
ASMC 2010 Suzuki Kizashi Bonneville Special
This ain't your run-of-the-mill family sedan. Designed and crafted by Advanced Product Engineering, the fully-built and modified Kizashi recently ran a record-breaking 203.301 mph at this year's Bonneville Speed Week. To accomplish this feat, engineers boosted power to well over 500 horsepower with help of a massive Turbonetics turbocharger bolted onto a highly-reworked engine (with upgraded internals, cooling, fuel, and lubrication systems). Of course, safety is a priority when travelling this fast, so the team installed a rollcage, aluminum rear bulkhead, racing seat, harness, window net, and fire suppression system.
Delta Tech Engineering Kizashi
From a company best known for its lighting products comes this stylish four-door. Modifications include an RKSport body kit, lowered Koni coilover suspension, intake and exhaust systems, and Katzkin leather. Of course, there's also a full LED and high intensity discharge light conversion.
Icon Vehicle Dynamics Equator
The Equator is one tough rig, particularly off-road on unpredictable terrain. But to Icon, the truck is a perfect starting point for a SEMA build, and as such, this rugged ride sports freer flowing headers and exhaust, Icon coilovers, Total Chaos upper control arms, Goodyear Wrangler MT/R tires, beadlock wheels, fender flares, and a bed extender.
