Suzuki Swift Sport Digitally Reimagined As A Widebody, Rear-engined Road-going Spaceship!
Can you guess what kind of powertrain it has?
Digital renders take modifications to the next level, uninhibited by real-world constraints such as budget or practicality. The Suzuki Swift Sport in the animated video below is nothing like the Maruti Suzuki Swift hatchback that we see each day. It’s been rendered as a lowered and widened competition-spec racecar by concept artist Vishnu Suresh. Check it out:
A rear-engined racecar needs a functional rear spoiler, and this Swift has a giant one with two wings! Although the interior isn’t rendered in this video, you can see a roll cage inside. The roll cage, chassis braces and engine likely take up most of the room at the rear of the car. That’s why there’s a cargo box mounted on the roof. How practical! The massive multi-spoke wheels are shod with whitewall low-profile tyres, likely racing slicks.
UK-spec Suzuki Swift Sport
Now, the bumpers on the stock Suzuki Swift Sport already looked great, so the front fascia remains largely identical to the factory-spec car. At the rear, the stock Swift Sport comes with two exhaust tips at each corner. This one doesn’t just have two exhaust exits, it has two turbos that feed air to the rear-mounted engine. We can’t help but notice the short, straight-pipe exhausts. If this were a real car, it would likely be as loud and fiery as a WW-II aeroplane!
The Suzuki Swift Sport on which the above concept car is based does not exist in India. It is sold in several European countries, Australia, South Africa and Mexico among other countries. With its 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine (with hybrid tech) paired with a 6-speed manual transmission and lower, stiffer suspension, the Swift Sport is a true hot hatchback, making 140PS and 230Nm, which is good for a 0-100kmph time of 9.1 seconds.
Have you been able to guess what engine this car has, yet? The rear end looks a lot like a 1950s Porsche or Volkswagen Beetle, doesn’t it? It likely has a flat four-cylinder boxer engine that sits above the rear axle. Can you imagine a Swift with a Porsche flat-four in it? This is it!
We can’t imagine how oversteer-y a car like this would be in real life. Let us know in the comments if you’d like to see this widebody Swift Sport come to life as a spec racer. The real-world Swift Sport is unlikely to make it to our shores anytime soon, and the Baleno RS is long discontinued. We hope that Maruti Suzuki cooks up a sporty hatch for India soon, but until then, feel free to ogle this car on YouTube!
