This Suzuki Twin Dreams Of Being A Porsche 911 GT3 RS

A Japanese tuner has been offering body kits that turn the humble Suzuki Twin into a GT3 RS-wannabe for some time, apparently. Now, a fully-complete example is for sale

Where do we even start with this? The humble Suzuki Twin is not exactly the kind of car you’d expect anyone to want to convert to be a pseudo-bonafide track car, but because Japan, one tuner has gone ahead and done that anyway.

Meet the Ducks-Garden (possibly the best name for a tuning firm ever) Suzuki GT2win. In case the Twin has so far escaped your consciousness, it was a Kei car built for the Japanese market from 2003 to 2005, designed purely to be cheap and efficient - and it could be had with then-cutting-edge hybrid tech, too.

So naturally, it served as the base for what might be one of the strangest yet most incredible conversions we’ve ever seen. This 2004 example, which yes, is for sale, has had the full works.

The front bumper has been replaced to incorporate Porsche-like intakes including the 996 GT3 RS-esque triple venting, while new red ‘GT2win’ decals are slapped on the side along with a genuine set of BBS wheels. Oh, and naturally, there’s red accenting everywhere to contrast the rather lovely silver paint finish. We’ll admit, it’s hard to track down for sure, but we’re fairly confident that wasn’t an OEM body colour for the Twin - so some serious money has gone into this.

There’s also a new rear spoiler and a rather comical rear diffuser that, it goes without saying (although we will anyway) won’t do any real diffusing. Spot the ‘GT3’ badge on the back, too, in case there was any doubt.

The interior of this car has blue and black vinyl seats, though we’re honestly not sure if those were available through Ducks-Garden or another aftermarket addition, along with a retrimmed steering wheel with fresh red stitching.

We’re also massive fans of the additional gauge and double digital display that’s been added.

This is all made even more hilarious by the fact that, aside from an absolutely gargantuan cold air intake kit, nothing has changed on the 660cc Suzuki K6A engine. That’d mean about 43bhp sent through a three-speed automatic gearbox. Incredible.

There’s no practical reason to spend the approx. £11,400 asking price (before import costs), but if you’ve got the cash to spare, we’d commend anyone just mad enough to do it.

Alternatively, you could pick up a second-hand Suzuki Twin yourself and buy the parts. Yes, Ducks-Garden is still going, although its website looks like it hasn’t undergone a major refresh since about 2005.
