UK: Striking Kia cee’d SW Medical Car
Kia UK has released special cee’d SW Medical Car, which will be employed as an official Medical Response Unit at circuits and events around the UK, including high profile events at Castle Combe and Silverstone.
It will be joined by the cee’d Safety car that was introduced to the public last year and serves to intervene in serious and dangerous incidents during racing events at Castle Combe circuit (UK).
To make the cee’d SW more circuit friendly, a few changes had to be made to the car. The suspension system used on SW Medical Car has been upgraded using Eibach lowering springs, pro_cee’d sport dampers and an upgraded rear anti-roll bar. The 1.6 liter diesel engine has also been upgraded using a K&N air filter and modified ECU, taking power from 113 bhp to 142 bhp and adding 37 lb/ft of torque, taking it up to 225 lb/ft.
To ensure much needed extra grip at the track, cee’d SW received black 8 x 18-inch wheels, from Team Dynamics, which are wrapped in low profile 205/40 Michelin Pilot Sport rubber. A state-of-the-art blue and white LED digital lighting system from Vision Alert has been fitted throughout the car, along with a high tech emergency siren and PA system.
The system is fully flexible and pushing one button can activate the whole system for a swift set-off. Bespoke graphics, which meet with complex Motor Sport Association regulations, complete the look.
These are the first available images of the SW Medical Car, exclusively brought to you by KIA-WORLD blog.
