Mazda Mazda6 Racer concept, 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon
Mazda’s new Mazda6 sedan and wagon
will be the highlight of the automaker’s stands at the upcoming 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon, with three separate concept versions already confirmed for the show.
In addition to the Mazda6 concepts, Mazda will also present two concept versions of its CX-5 as well as its latest 2013 MX-5 Miata
and LMP2 race car
The Mazda6, known in Japan as the Atenza, will feature as the Mazda6 Racer concept, Mazda6 GT Sound Special concept and Mazda6 Wagon Grand Touring concept.
Each features a range of accessories including body kits, alloy wheels, suspension upgrades and, in the case of the GT Sound Special, a premium sound system.
The CX-5s, meanwhile, come in Grand Touring and Active Driver flavors. Like the Mazda6 range, these two concepts get subtle body kits, new wheels, and custom interiors.
The CX-5 Grand Touring features Mazda’s 2.2-liter SkyActiv turbodiesel engine, while the CX-5 Active Driver concept gets a matte white paint finish, carbon fiber hood and several other performance upgrades.
Finally, the LMP2 race car on Mazda’s stands will be one of the prototypes that featured Mazda’s 2.2-liter diesel engine and was fielded by Dempsey Racing during the 2012 motorsport season.
