Mazda6 is already such a competent car that Troy Lee Design really didn't have much more to ask for as a canvass on which to base their SEMA specialty.

In the Mazda6 the Japanese company has found a great fusion of practicality and performance, which is why a number of tuners are now taking a closer look at it. SEMA 2008 is one of the spaces where enthusiasts can see some of Mazda6's potential, particularly where Troy Lee Designs has stuck their hand in.

Troy Lee the customizer has funkdified 6 to almost unrecognizable levels by adding a few changes. Custom pain by Troy Lee has created a distinctive exterior that adds material changes to the 6, complimented by 18-inch Momo Strike wheels, Hoosier tires and A-1 Tinting providing interior darkness with their window work. Eibach Springs tuned the suspension, Wilwood Engineering provided a 6-spiston big brake kit and custom brake fabrication is thanks to JD. The finished article resembles a racing car somewhat.

Mazda6 is sold through US dealers as a 170hp 2.5-liter 4-cylinder baseline model as well as a 3.7 V6 striking out 272hp.
