Random Spotlight: Amuse'ing!

January 30, 2011


Stock or not, s2k's are one of the sexiest looking sports/compact car today. The availability is obviously limited, but once in possession and if you're a modifying fanatic, the journey of shopping for aftermarket parts begin.
In general, there are a few s2k's that go full quality, but browsing through s2ki, I found one that was worth sharing with our fans.
Here's one heck of a sexy s2k from Istanbul, Turkey owned and driven by Burak Batikan AK.


Batikan isn't one of those guys who buy different car brands/models throughout the years, but a pure s2k fan.
After moving out of the States and selling his s2k before he went back to his country, he bought another s2k, which became his 4th. Yes, his 4th!


Despite having the difficulty to import aftermarket parts to his country because of high taxes, Batikan managed to modify his car to impress many s2k fans.
The bodykit is the well-known Amuse Widebody kit with the combination of the Spoon Sports Hardtop.
To make his s2k even more different from others, the body was painted to a custom Blue color by Suzuki Bikes, which makes it an eye catcher.



Dropped on Buddy Club Race Spec Coilovers, the ride height is perfect to accommodate the aggressive sized wheels; Work XD9's in size 18x9(F) & 18x10(R).

The stock steering wheel and seats were replaced to Sparco products, giving style and safeness when tracking/racing.
As much as the exterior and interior were flawless, the engine bay didn't fall behind.
Many stock parts were replaced with Password:JDM products and other parts to enhance the performance.
