The Kizashi Apex Concept meanwhile is a salute to Suzuki's legendary motorcycling heritage boasting a Garrett turbocharger, an air-to-liquid intercooler, electronic boost control and a specific engine control unit calibration for enhanced driving dynamics.

Mated to a six-speed manual transmission, the force-fed system boosts peak output into the 210-220 kW range with maximum boost of 8.5 psi.

"Our turbo-equipped concept leverages the exceptional Kizashi platform and infuses it with a substantial boost. The Kizashi Apex Concept will further elevate our flagship sedan amongst enthusiasts who crave added power and performance," said Younan.

Key to the Apex Concept's performance is its air-to-liquid intercooler which is designed for more effective charge air cooling in a smaller package. The unit's relatively small heat exchanger and circulation pump are designed for minimal intrusions to vehicle cooling. The intercooler's primary advantage comes from the reduction in the overall length of ducting which results in less turbo lag for a faster throttle response.

The body's striking livery is based on Suzuki's motorcycle racing design theme and hints at the vehicles bloodline to the legendary Suzuki GSX-R Superbike.

For a more dramatic front-end the lower fascia features customised LED-based fog lights while Yokohama S.Drive 245/35-R19 tyres offer advanced nanotechnology micro-fibre compounds to maximum traction in wet and dry conditions.

HID headlamps and special light-weight 19 inch alloy wheels with a 'burnt asphalt' finish complete the high-level performance package.

Inside, the cabin receives an eye-catching treatment in black leather with laser blue Alcantara accents on the sports seats and steering wheel.
