A modified Suzuki Kizashi has set a new land speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats.
The car, dubbed the Bonneville Special, completed an average run at 203.720 mph (327.856 km/h) which surpassed the previous record of 202.301 mph (325.572 km/h) in the Blown Gas Coupe (F-BGC) category.
As we have previously reported, the Bonneville Special was built by Richard Holdener and Tom Habrzyk of Advanced Product Engineering. They equipped the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with a Turbonetics turbocharger, an intercooler, a new intake manifold, revised headers, and forged pistons / rods. These modifications enabled the engine to produce 500 bhp (373 kW /507 PS) and 420 lb-ft (569 Nm) of torque.
