Suzuki Kizashi Bonneville


Suzuki revealed details of their super special Kizashi Bonneville which is set to break the 200 MPH speed record at Salt Flats of Utah later this year.

Based o the Kizashi sedan, the Bonneville special car still gets a 2.4 liter four-cylinder engine, but it’s heavily modified to deliver no less than 500 hp and 420 lb.-ft. of torque.

The car is also stripped-out, lightened and has been fitted with better brakes and aerodynamic parts for the job. As for safety measures, it comes with SCTA-approved roll cage, an aluminum bulkhead in the rear, racing seat, seat harnesses and window net. But the coolest thing is that the car looks pretty much showroom stock!

The Kizashi platform – and its Nurburgring heritage – is morphed into a salt-specific recipe with new coilovers, steel wheels seam welded, and speed-specific 15×7-inch Goodyear Front Runner rubber.

An air dam keeps the Kizashi’s nose planted, window straps and hood pins ensure the hood and glass stay in place, and a parachute can bring the high speed show to an emergency stop. Finally, a dual fire system provides the extra assurance so important for Mitani, with some 900 boosted horses but only a few feet in front of his now high-speed capsule.
