Road Race Motorsports Platinum Edition Suzuki Kizashi – Click above for high-res image gallery

Road Race Motorsports has given the Suzuki Kizashi not just a boost, but a kick in the pants and elsewhere. Instead of the stock sedan's 185 horsepower, RRM turbocharged the engine up to 300 hp, adds a sports suspension and sport brakes, along with a choice of bodykits. If 300 ponies is a little more than you're after, RRM also has a 200-hp package, and the suspension offerings come in Stage 1, 2, and 3.

Our own Jeff Glucker drove it this week and wrote that "the carbon bucket seat was not built for my butt and I was half-assing (literally) in the seat. Thankfully, [the RRm Kizashi] was still easy to drive and predictably more fun than the stock model." Follow the jump for the press release and check out the high-res images in the gallery below.

      i loving this car more and more... i hope version 2 will fix some of the mistakes made.
        • 4 Years Ago
        What mistakes were made? I haven't heard of any issues with the car at all. It's praised for its styling, engine, and handling since it came out last year.
      • 4 Years Ago
      This car deserves to sell better.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I like the wheels.
      • 4 Years Ago
      The Kasashi needs a turbo option.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Come on VW Give them the 2.0t tsi already! It's practically a Jetta anyway!.

      Why buy an inexpensive car and then add expensive modifications?!
        • 4 Years Ago
        First of all, glad to see you take this comment section so seriously.

        Secondly, I totally agree with what you have to say about not being able to initially afford the car/brand/performance one may seek. In fact, I owned a first generation Mazdaspeed 3 and I put a lot of money into it, trying to increase performance, aesthetics, etc. However, when I finally got rid of the car I realized that the money I spent over the course of the time I owned the car would have been better spent on a car engineered to a higher price point with higher quality materials, engineering, etc. I feel this is the case because despite the fact that I spent a sizable amount of money on the vehicle the increase in performance was negligible. That's my point. Take it or leave it.

        Other than that, I totally have no idea what I am talking about and I am purely a brand snob. That's why I have a VW for God's sake, because VWs are by far one of the most prestigious brands available.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I guess personally I would rather by a car that has been engineered to a higher standard and then make a few, tasteful modifications rather than buy a product engineered to a price point and add pointless, expensive modifications that only increase performance marginally and have no effect on the overall perception of the vehicle.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Uhhh.

        Downrated.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Looks good. But I'm more interested in an AWD SX4 platinum package...

      By the way, Jeff, I laughed that your big butt couldn't fit.

      This is EXCELLENT news!

      RRM scammed the Hyundai and with all the money raised can invest it in their Suzuki.
      Bravo RRM, recent business graduates from Hennessey?

      I think they were last seen weaseling their way into the Kia community.

      See NSPP and Fuel Controller, sure glad I came from the VW/Audi world and didn't fall for it and went straight to an ECU flash
        • 4 Years Ago
        What?

        What did RRM do to Hyundai/Kia?
        • 4 Years Ago
        Start on gencoupe.com and search either RRM or NSPP. Their product worked on 1-5% of the cars purchased and on the 95-99% that it didn't, they decided not to return e-mails anymore or refund people their money. We are talking about $800 worth of hardware purchased.

        Here is an example, but after it's release at SEMA last year, by April 2010 angry mobs started.

        Sample:

        Buyer beware! Love what they did with the Suzuki though and hope it turns out for Suzuki.
