The only estate kit car ever!
A surprising rally car, but not in its results, more in the car itself. To be fair, the Baleno never had much chance to shine. Suzuki team boss Monster Tajima was driving the car himself and only on a few rather rare occasions. It all seemed to be just for a bit of fun. The surprise was that Tajima choose the estate version of this car, when a Baleno hatchback version of far more perfect size for this program was available. Maybe the longer wheelbase was an advantage. And well, there was a curiosity effect, which is not a bad idea for marketing. And yes, indeed this was an F2 kit car, however more in terms of engine and suspension rather than body panels.
