— Superior Motorsports RZR Turbo S —
When you enjoy a huge event like UTV Takeover in the Oregon Dunes, you not only take in the activities on and off the sand, you gawk in awe at the amazing cars you see cruising the site. It’s no different for us. We had to stop and take a closer look at a local build from the Superior Motorsports shop out of Eugene, Oregon. The staff and owners are all enthusiasts who were unable to find a good local option for the quality builds they themselves were interested in having done. Additionally, they got tired of going into shops and still having to wait for them to buy parts online. According to operations manager Will Gauderman, he and owner Troy Fennell wanted to offer professional, clean installations and have aftermarket products on hand that customers could see, touch and feel prior to purchasing instead of relying on pictures on the internet. Superior Motorsports is truly a one-stop shop for all your UTV needs—from small items like mirrors to full custom builds that include fab work, custom paint, powdercoating, etc.—they handle it all!
The build we photographed and took for a spin started life as a 2019 Polaris RZR Turbo S. The transformation was about as close to a frame-off build as you can get. A massive amount of effort was put into covering the stock bodywork with a high-end look. To get there, the main body color was custom-painted Kodiak Brown, and the fenders and front fascia had added bronze. A custom paint job like the one on this RZR starts around $2000 and can go as high as $3000, depending on the level of detail. This artwork, with two-tone and speaker pod/grill paint, costs about $2600 total. Those pods were mated to an SSV Works Phase 5 stereo system. The suspension arms were powder coated black to match the OEM frame color. Way out back, a set of ZRP radius rods and a pull plate were used, along with Sandcraft limit straps. The shock springs were powder coated to match as well. More Kodiak Brown paint was used on the calipers, wheel hubs, doors, dash and roof. Even the Assault grab handle had some Kodiak Brown.
The SDR doors surround custom PRP seats with Italia Stitch and seat heaters, and the 4.2 belts match the car’s brown theme. Sector Seven side mirrors and a Baja Designs dome light provide a unique glow that can be seen in the cab or from miles away. An Axia rear view mirror and Joker Machine headset hangar all sit under a Superior Motorsports cage and roof.
Contura lighted rockers with an XTC Power System have what electronics the Polaris Ride Command does not. A Rugged RM-60 lets the car communicate with the outside world, and a Rugged 660 intercom with flush-mount jacks lets the passengers talk to each other through headsets or helmets.
The RZR Turbo S is a blast to ride in stock trim, but with a Boondocker Turbo and a set of paddles at an epic dune area like Coos Bay, you step up to the next level. Power was in abundance, whether we were carving a dune wall or racing straight up it. In fact, unless we were out on the flats and going straight, the throttle pedal never hit the floor. As good as the car looked on the outside, the interior was a masterpiece. The car was finished like a show car but ran and handled like a racer. In the beautiful Oregon dunes, a car with this many quality components and this kind of attention to detail stands out, yet feels like it belongs all at the same time. If you are looking for a builder who can not only bolt on the right parts but make any UTV stand out, the Pacific Northwest’s newest shop, Superior Motorsports, can do that for you.
