Where Are They Now? The Suzuki Kizashi Concept Cars

What are red, white and silver, about 3 feet high each and ready for the scrap heap? The Suzuki Kizashi concepts of course! Check out this spy shot of the three Suzuki Kizashi concept cars partially destroyed and stacked up outside a warehouse in Shizuoka.

The 2007 – 2008 Kizashi, Kizashi 2 and Kizashi 3 concepts seen here are ready for the scrap heap, apparently the roofs on all three have been crushed down to make stacking easier (because, you know, concept cars need to be stacked sometimes) and it looks as though the white Kizashi 2 has fared the worst of the three. These were static concepts so the only salvagable parts would’ve been the wheels and tires if anything. We’re not sure why some parts have been removed and others haven’t, it could very well be because of vandalism or a Suzuki employee wanting something nice to fill that empty space above his fireplace. Whatever the case, keep an eye out on Yahoo Auctions Japan for a Kizashi 2 headlight!

    LOL!! I was going to say what a shame but look at the red and white ones, they’re made of MDF!!! Damn Suzuki, at least make them into a kids ride or something for the next motor show.

    These cars were hot. I remember their concepts and the profile shots are DUB-worthy.

    it kinda looks like scrap from a future movie, maybie in a couple of years thats how all of our cars in scrapyars will loook, some white plastics hanging with futuristic looks

    Mannn that is SAD!! Works of art scrapped… Mind you, they probably want to hide how good the car looked compared to the version they ended up making.

  • dorichan

    i though these concepts has v6 engines in them ?? or something hybrd. why do they put car covers on them too they are just junk now ?!

  • importpunch

    That is depressing. Suzuki doesn’t really have concept cars, so they should have saved it.

  • Frank

    Poor CC’s!!

  • Danny

    Wow, I am a car designer and these concept cars has had alot of blood and sweat put into them. I never understood why they do this, I would be more than happy to take it and put it in my living room as a center piece.

  • Stingray

    WTF is wrong with those people? How about making special rooms for the concepts at the Suzuki HQ? Put ‘em in glass boxes and display them in a park, but don’t let them die, those cars are art pieces. Where is the respect for the work of the designers?

  • beteks

    that’s just sad :( the poor concepts are scrapped

    The fact is that the concepts were actually nice looking. Its a shame they had to see such a fate.

  • gouki

    This is outrageous!

  • Alcyone Lunacy

    Wow….a sad fate indeed. Manufacturers spend tons of cash just to develop and display these concepts. You would think they would at least keep them around for the inspirational factor they were made for!

    Hopefully the ACX-II didn’t suffer the same fate back in the 80′s.

    May I use this photograph?

    Seeing those cars hidden under car covers is really disappointing. We need to get them out in front at the car shows!
