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.
