Default Suzuki Resurrects Turbocharged SX4 SEMA Cars for New York Auto Show Display


Suzuki doesn't have a new vehicle for the New York Auto Show, but it's resurrecting some SEMA Show cars that are so old old we had forgotten all about them and thought the company's press release was about some new tricked out versions of the SX4.

But how can you forget a name like Zuk?

That's right, the Suzuki-sportbike inspired Zuk has been dusted off and polished up for the Big Apple, this after it made it's initial debut in Sin City back at the SEMA Show in 2006. The Zuk is based off the SX4 Crossover and features a Road Race Motorsports turbo kit, bolted to the factory 2.0-liter engine to make 300hp.

The car also features a complete aerodynamic overhaul, some big fart cans, a sizable rear spoiler and some 19-inch wheels. It reminds us of a more nostalgic time and makes us long for a copy of Modified Mag and Paul Walker on the big screen (the more things change, the more they stay the same…).

The exterior bodywork and paint is inspired from Suzuki's GSX-R and Hayabusa sport bikes, while inside the motorcycle theme continues with a roll-cage that has a definite motorcycle-frame look to it.

The second SX4 is the SXForce, based on the SX4 Sport sedan version of the popular Suzuki model, and it first debuted at the SEMA Show in 2007. With 250hp and a carbon fiber body, the SXForce looks like it's ready for track duty, and Suzuki claims it has been "track tested."

It features Tein coilovers, a roll-cage, 18-inch Enkei wheels with 255/45/18 Toyo T1-R tires up front and 235/40/18s in the rear. It also features a Rotora six-piston calipers with 355mm rotors.

The sportbike theme continues on the SXForce with a motorcycle instrument cluster and controls, as well as Hayabusa handlebars instead of a traditional steering wheel.

Be sure to check out our coverage of the New York Auto Show starting Wednesday, April 8th.
