The Suzuki C2 was a promising and well proportioned two
seat sports car concept first revealed at the 1997 Frankfurt
Mounted up front was an complex 1.6 litre V8 engine which
produced 250 horsepower @ 4,000 rpm and 283 Nm or torque
@ 4,000 rpm. Power was sent to the rear wheels through
a 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic transmission.
Considering the C2 was designed back in 1997 the styling
has stayed remarkably fresh. Yes the wheels look a little
bland, some of the minor details look dated compared to
modern cars, and the black colored wheel arch extensions
would have to go, but with just a few minor tweeks the
C2 could easily match some contemporary sports cars for
style. The basic shape and clean lines of the grille coupled
with the triple beam headlights are particularly successful,
as is the rear section with its twin exhausts neatly tucked
into the rear bumper.
The roof system of the Suzuki C2 offered flexibility due
to its clever design. It could be either a fully enclosed
vehicle, a full convertible, or by removing the centre
panel it was a targa top.
