A bit bigger: Custom Kizashi at SEMA



I got to drive the 2010 Suzuki Kizashi, and really liked it. Now, Road Race Motorsport is going to display three custom Kizashis at the SEMA Show next week. Below is the full press for the Platinum Edition release.



ROAD///RACE Motorsports Unveils Platinum Edition Kizashi

SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif. — October 29, 2009 - ROAD///RACE Motorsports, the premier tuning company for Suzuki in North America, today unveiled the ROAD///RACE Motorsports Platinum Edition Kizashi. This car was 6 months in the making and contracted by American Suzuki Motor Corporation. The successful racing heritage of ROAD///RACE Motorsports has lead to a long standing relationship with American Suzuki.

A practical approach from ROAD///RACE Motorsports, gets the most out of an all already fantastic Kizashi platform. They have created a car that is enhanced in all areas of performance and styling. ROAD///RACE Motorsports increased the Platinum Edition’s performance by about 20% as compared to the factory version Kizashi. It also features improved springs, shocks, swaybars, and brakes. That makes the ROAD///RACE Edition appeal to a wider audience, including driving enthusiasts.

Looking at the Kizashi, one can see the great styling of the car; all four sides of the car show the racing heritage of ROAD///RACE Motorsports. Everything about the car seems easily attainable and not unlike something you could seem on the showroom floor. Even so, the Platinum Edition Kizashi looks like it is just a number plate away from track!
Look for ROAD///RACE Motorsports Platinum Edition Kizashi at SEMA 2009 in Zeitronix booth 21212, one of the leading contributors to the project.
