Suzuki Gets a Bonneville Speed Record

With a two-way average speed of 203.720mph, the silver Suzuki Kizashi sedan driven by Road & Track editor Sam Mitani stormed its way into the record books and a special place in Bonneville’s history.

Despite several records and record attempts made by Suzuki motorcycles, the Kizashi’s class speed record is a first for Suzuki’s automotive division. The car, powered by a fully-built 2.4 liter engine producing a staggering 500whp, was prepped for Bonneville by the crew at Road & Track magazine, which chronicled the build in a series of YouTube videos that highlight the comprehensive engine build, as well as installation of the SCTA-approved roll cage, an aluminum bulkhead in the rear, racing seat, seat harnesses, and window netting.
