Click above for a high-res gallery of the Kesselman Mazda CX-7.

From afar, our first reaction was: what's a Matrix doing at the Mazda booth? Upon closer inspection, the dumped wagon you see above revealed itself as a tuned Mazda CX-7. Unfortunately, our Russian is about as good as our Swahili, so we weren't able to get any definitive details on what exactly has been done to Mazda's mid-level CUV. But the upgraded intercooler, ultra-low stance, gaudy body kit, stripped interior and six-point roll cage is proof that Russia's Kesselman tuning excels at answering questions that no one asked.

      Hey! Good job, fellas, You've taken a CX-7 and turned into a Mazda 5 from Fast & Furious 4.

      [Speaking of the Mazda 5, did anybody hear C/D has commissioned a school's auto college to place a Mazdaspeed 3's motor into a Mazda 5? I've been waiting for this for a long time.]

        I don't know why I don't like it. Maybe it's the side mirrors that just jump out at me. lol

      I don't know... if they could tone the body kit down a bit... it wouldn't be that bad.

      Wasn't this some kind of soft offroad vehicle once? Looks like the Mazda 3 got a (what is the opposite of a top-chop?).
