It looks like Mazda wanted to really do something off the wall with the new Mazda6 sedan. There is only one person who can pull off an “off the wall” look without going to far and that person’s name is Troy Lee! Behold the Troy Lee Design’s Mazda6. Right away you can tell that its a race inspired theme with the very prominent front splitter and the “06” race number on the side.
I test drove a stock Mazda6 a few weeks ago at the O.C. Autoshow and I loved it. I like what Mazda did with the styling, the interior was great, and there was plenty of power on tap. My only complaint was that its front wheel drive! Bah! I’m still holding out some false hope that there will be a Mazdaspeed version of the new 6 sedan in the near future
Check out the press release:
LAS VEGAS, Nov. 4, 2008 – The bigger, faster and smarter 2009 MAZDA6 will roll into the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show with a radical look and feel that is worthy of the vehicle’s performance capabilities. Mazda will showcase two MAZDA6s at its booth at the SEMA show in Las Vegas.
The Troy Lee MAZDA6 features custom paint by Troy Lee Designs, with paint prep and detailing by L&G Enterprises, paint material by PPG and body modifications by Funktion USA, to create an exterior design that is truly distinctive. To give the MAZDA6 a high-performance look and feel, 18″ Momo Strike wheels, Hoosier tires and window tinting by A-1 Tinting are added. Suspension modification by Eibach Springs, cross-drilled, 6-piston big brake kit by Wilwood Engineering and custom brake fabrication by JD Performance builds upon MAZDA6’s already superior handling performance.
David Green brings his award-winning styling to another SEMA showcar – Green Energy. The exterior features clean lines that run from the front to the rear spoilers, with DG Motorsports taking the lead on the styling components. The MAZDA6 is fitted with 19″ Volk Rays wheels and Yokohama tires. Kustom Shop and Dan Hatch/TMI Custom bring it all together with the striking paint. The Green Energy is an elegant vehicle that is sure to get noticed on the road.
