Default Road Race Suzuki SX-4 @ 2007 Chicago Show

Road Race Suzuki SX-4 @ 2007 Chicago Show

http://www.autoblog.com/2007/02/08/c...e-suzuki-sx-4/



Quote:
Suzuki didn't even bother holding a press conference at the Chicago Auto Show this year, but the little car company that could loves to tune its cars for us, and a new one was present at McCormick Place. The Road Race SX4 was dialed in by the well-known craftsmen at Road Race Motorsports in Santa Fe, CA. Based on the 5-door SX4, this tuner car features a Road Race SRI intake system, a piggyback ECU to eek out a few more horsepower from the car's 2.0L four-cylinder, a catback exhaust and aftermarket pulley system. The car sits atop sport springs from Road Race and front and rear anti-roll bars keep thing in check. The SX-4's all-wheel drive is also now tasked with rotating a set of 18-inch Enkei NTO+3 wheels wrapped in Toyo rubber. The car's exterior, meanwhile, is awash in a two-tone paint job. The roof racks have been deleted for a smoother look, though a Carbontrix front sport lip and vented carbon fiber hood were added to up its street cred. The interior benefits from a Carbontrix shift known and Suzuki's own Suzuki Workds Techno fiber trim kit.

With the tuning scene dying down a bit, the purpose of an exercise like the Road Race Suzuki SX-4 may be called in question, but we doubt Suzuki cares.

When it's dropped 2" or 3", it's a very nice looking little car. Such a shame it looks so goofy at it's stock ride height.

More info? Never heard that, and it doesn't make much sense.

The new ride height, bumper, and rail delete really help the aesthetics of that car.
