2011 Suzuki Kizashi Apex

Here are 2011 Suzuki Kizashi Apex Concept at 2011 New York Auto Show. American Suzuki Motor Corporation (ASMC) unveiled a turbo concept version of its Kizashi sport sedan at the company�s 2011 New York Auto Show (NYIAS) press conference this evening. The turbocharged Kizashi Apex Concept showcases the link between Suzuki�s automotive division and its championship-winning motorcycles.

The Suzuki Kizashi Apex Concept features a Garrett turbocharger, an air-to-liquid intercooler, electronic boost control, and a specific engine control unit calibration to provide outstanding drivability. The system takes the Kizashi�s peak output into the 275-300 horsepower range, with a maximum boost of 8.5 psi. This powertrain is matched exclusively to a six-speed manual transmission.

Specific system components are as follows:

Garrett/Honeywell 2871 R ball bearing turbocharger
Internally wastegated 0.86 A/R turbine housing
Oil and water cooled bearing system

Turbine housing cast from high-nickel �Ni-Resist� material for extreme applications
Turbine wheel cast from lightweight iconel materials for extreme applications
Key to the Suzuki Kizashi Apex Concept�s performance is its air-to-liquid intercooler, purposed for more effective charge air cooling in a smaller package. The unit�s relatively small heat exchanger and circulation

pump are designed to be minimally intrusive to vehicle cooling. The intercooler�s primary advantage comes from the reduction in the overall length of ducting, which results in faster throttle response and a lower turbo lag, giving peak boost faster than most air-to-air intercooler systems. For impressive engine breathing, the Apex Concept utilizes a free flowing true dual exhaust system.
