Suzuki Reveals Its Supercar Killer With a Hybrid Hayabusa Engine

Suzuki is most known for its quirky, compact, and lightweight budget automobiles like the Swift, Cultus, Wagon R, and Jimny, as well as its lightning-fast superbikes like the Hayabusa.

The business has just revealed that it has combined their skills to produce a razor-sharp-looking, lightweight, and ultra-powerful supercar killer with a hybridized Hayabusa powertrain.

The Vision Gran Turismo (VGT) concept car is Suzuki’s take on modern supercars like the Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss, Ferarri Monza SP, and BAC Mono.
VGT is a stunning vehicle that expertly integrates modern speedster design with Suzuki Swift style elements.

The Hayabusa’s 1.34-liter four-cylinder petrol engine produces 190 horsepower (hp) and 150 Newton-meters (Nm) of torque in the Suzuki VGT. Suzuki has coupled the powertrain with three electric motors to produce a combined hybrid power output of 430 hp and 610 Nm of torque, making it a true supercar killer.

Suzuki VGT’s performance stats appear tiny in a world of hypercars with 2000+ horsepower. However, given the car’s light weight of 970 kilograms, its power is more than adequate.

Actual Debut

Regrettably, if it all sounds too good to be true, it probably is. The concept for the upcoming video game Gran Turismo 7, dubbed Vision Gran Turismo, has been released by Suzuki.

For the time being, the corporation has no plans to make a real-life counterpart of VGT. Its forte is manufacturing modest economic vehicles and frenzied sportbikes, which it will likely keep to unless it receives unexpected demand and desire based on its virtual persona.
