For such a small outfit and niche sports car maker the Surpasse V is a surprisingly good looking motor. Sure there are some elements which could do with attention - more specifically the sealed-beam headlight units which are crudely molded into the bodywork - but overall it's not a bad looking little sports car. Lots of people will point out the styling similarities with the Ferrari Enzo, and rightly so as there is obviously some Enzo influences in there. But at the same time it's clear this is not intended to be a replica, it just borrows a few shapes from one of the best supercars of all time.The monocoque chassis and the suspension is designed by Suzusho. The rear sub frame is bolt on and is easily replaceable. The Suppasse-V is the closest thing on the road that is equal to a competitive racing car which, can be seen at Le-mans and many other circuits.
The Body is shaped and designed by the famous Kenji Mimura, who is well known for Dome Zero and Le-mans cars in Japan. We are very pleased to present to you with satisfaction the Supasse V.Mounted behind the two-seat passenger compartment is a 2.3 litre, turbocharged, inline 4-cylinder engine lifted from the Mazda3 MPS. Producing a respectable 270 horsepower @ 5,500 rpm, and 380 Nm of torque @ 3,000 rpm this unit should offer pretty impressive performance considering the Surpasse V only weighs 850 kgs (1,873 lbs).
It's doubtful whether the Suzusho will be offering the Surpasse V outside of Japan. So it looks like the car will be mainly battling against the likes of the Tommy Kaira ZZ and Vemac RD180.
