Maruti Suzuki launched the all-new S-Presso a few weeks back and the car has already gained a lot of popularity in the Indian market. The S-Presso is the production version of the Future-S concept and is heavily inspired by the SUV design. It is aimed at young buyers who want to a car with road presence, high seating position without investing much in the vehicle. Well, being a budget vehicle, the S-Presso does not even offer even alloy wheels with the top-end version. Well, youths want them to look different from the rest and grab more eyeballs on the roads. AM Racing by Achintya Mehrotra knows what exactly a young buyer is looking for in the vehicle and has modified an S-Presso on the same lines. The car belongs to Motocraft, Sector 140, Noida and Achintya thanks them wholeheartedly for allowing these modifications on the S-Presso. Here is India’s first modified Maruti Suzuki S-Presso!
This S-Presso is in the flagship orange colour and the before and after pictures show the stark difference between the two. The modification list is not long but it has been carefully chosen to ensure that the car does not lose its character while looking much better than the stock.
To start with, it gets new gorgeous looking multi-spoke alloy wheels. The Enkei RPF1 and Enkei RCT5 alloy wheels on the S-Presso make it look extremely good. They both are different alloy wheels and both look equally good on the S-Presso. The tyre size has been increased to 15-inch. It is now 185/60 tyres that add width to the rubber and makes the vehicle look complete. That’s not all. To add the low rider look, special Cobra lowering springs have been imported from the Netherlands. It makes the vehicle closer to the ground, fill up the wheel arches and changes the way it looks completely. This S-Presso will surely turn heads on the roads and if you’re planning to get something similar on your S-Presso or any other car, please contact AM Racing directly. The actual cost of the modification is not known.
The Maruti Suzuki S-Presso is sold through the Arena dealership network. The base variant of the vehicle is priced at Rs 3.69 lakhs while the most-loaded top-end version costs Rs 4.91 lakhs.
