The frame is an all-new design using an aluminum space frame. To optimize performance, the powertrain was significantly modified, moving the engine from the base model’s forward position to a mid-mounted configuration.

Suzuki Vision Gran Turismo (Gr.3 version)
This model is a realization of Suzuki’s sporting prowess, extensively tuned to meet Gr.3 regulations. The base Suzuki VGT uses the 1,340 cc (1,340 cc) Hayabusa engine paired with 3 high-powered electric motors on an all-wheel-drive powertrain. This Gr.3 version was however modified to a simple front-engine, rear-wheel-drive configuration with a twin-turbo V8 engine made up of 2 Hayabusa engine blocks for a total displacement of 2,680 cc (2,680 cc). In this form, the monstrous engine can produce a maximum of 577 BHP at an incredibly high 10,000 rpm.

1932 Ford Roadster
In the world of custom cars, the United States is often number one in terms of quality, volume and genre. The oldest genre among them, now emblematic of American culture, is the Hot Rod. This was a movement that originated in the 1930s, where the Ford Model T and later Models A and B were heavily modified by their owners. Many exterior modifications were carried out on these cars, such as the removal of wheel arches, hoods and the cutting of the bodywork to make them open-top convertibles. More powerful engines were later added to cars as technology improved over the years.
Watkins Glen International
Nicknamed “The Glen”, Watkins Glen International is a historic road course located in New York State, approximately 260 miles northwest of New York City, which opened in 1956 and is surrounded by rolling hills. The first half of the track features high speed sections with medium to high speed corners, with the second half featuring combinations of tight and technical corners. The hilly track is also narrow, which encourages high-intensity racing battles. The back straight leads to a high-speed chicane, immediately followed by a right-hander into a banked section (outside loop), which is one of the main highlights of the track. From here, the long course will run through the technical section known as “The Boot”, while the “Short Course” bypasses this segment entirely.
