This custom Suzuki Swift owned by Somrath Rasmitham is one of the top five modified versions featured at the Thailand Motor show
We showed you a highly impressive mod job on Suzuki Swift dubbed the Sport Auto Salon with paint scheme derived from GSX-R1000 superbike yesterday from the ongoing Thailand Motor Show. Making a compelling presence at the same motoring exhibition is another customised version of the Swift.
Suzuki’s Thai division has displayed the top 5 modified Swift picked out of a contest in a bid to identify the best custom work the country had to offer. Among them is the Speedy Blue Metallic Suzuki Swift owned by Somrath Rasmitham. Just as the name suggests the blue paint job is the central theme of the whole design while using several elements from the regular Swift Sport.
He opted to use the front grille with hexagonal mesh pattern, bumper with round shaped fog lamps, sporty side skirts and integrated roof spoiler from the Swift Sport. Besides the striking blue colour, the custom Swift Sport gets wider air intake, black lip spoiler, dual exhaust system and black fog lamp housing adding a more dynamic character to the already impressive hatchback.
The alloy wheels are brand new as well with grey spoke finish and it is wrapped by soft compound tyres from Continental. Stepping inside the cabin, the Speedy Blue Metallic Suzuki Swift is fitted with contrast red and black upholstery with the sport seats bought from Recaro. Sitting in the middle of the dashboard is a larger 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system with modern connectivity options.
The customised Swift Sport does not come with any mechanical updates though as it continues to use the 1.4-litre Boosterjet turbo petrol engine which produces 140 PS at 5,500 rpm and 230 Nm of peak torque delivered between 2,500 and 2,500 rpm. It is mated to a six-speed manual transmission as standard with option of six-speed AT.
The Swift Sport has always been a distant dream for Indian aficionados and instead we will be getting an RS variant of the Swift probably sometime next year as we exclusively reported.
It will likely be equipped with the 1.0-litre Boosterjet three-cylinder engine from Baleno producing 102 PS of maximum power at 5,500 rpm and 150 Nm of peak torque at 1,700-4,500 rpm.
