A Suzuki Samurai, also known as a Suzuki Jimmy in other parts of the world, isn’t typically a vehicle you would expect to see at Japan’s famed Tsukaba Circuit, but this modified version showed up and showed just how capable this mini off-road SUV really is. It comes powered by a 1.3L four-cylinder engine making 63 hp from the factory, but this one clearly has some upgrades.
After seeing this Suzuki Samurai in-action, you might be interested in getting one yourself. If so, getting the 1988.5 model would be your best bet, as the Samurai was tuned for better on-road use in the United States, including softer suspension settings as well as a larger anti-roll bar to reduce body roll. Engine wise, it also has a lower fifth gear (.865:1 vs the earlier .795:1) for increased engine speed and power on the highway.
