Click above for high-res gallery of the Troy Lee Designs Mazda6

The redesigned Mazda6 is hitting dealers as we speak, and the Japanese automaker turned to the famous vanguards of style at Troy Lee Designs to tweak one for the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this year. TLD laid down the custom green paint job with help from L&G Enterprises and PPG for the paint itself, while Funktion USA added body mods like the carbon fiber splitter up front and rear wing. Lest you think this tuned Mazda6 is just a show stand prop, it's also been fitted with 18-inch black Momo Strike wheels, Hoosier tires (nice touch), a custom suspension by Eibach Springs and big brake kit by Wilwood with 6-piston clampers and cross-drilled rotors. There's no word on whether or not the TLD Mazda6 has any engine upgrades, but it's not like the stock 3.7L V6 is lacking Zoom-Zoom with its best-in-class 272 horsepower. Check out the official word from Mazda after the jump and our gallery of live, high-res shots from the show floor below.



PRESS RELEASE

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.

      There's nothing tuned about this. Looking the part and playing the part are completely different.

      Looks horrible as well.

      I'm kind of disappointed by that, you'd think Troy Lee could do more than paint a car in color changing paint and put numbers and logos on it.

        Troy Lee should stick to helmets... his cars graphics/ paint I just don't find distinctive.

      The Troy Lee MAZDA6 designs looks very interesting.

      Nice sports sedan. It reminds me of Ford’s World Touring Cars and European Touring Cars back in the early 1980’s, the turbocharged 2.6 V6 Sierra RS Cosworth-coupe and sports sedans.

      Hmmm…interesting! : )

        Touring cars don't have huge ass NASCAR sized numbers & Ford's touring cars were blue & white... NOT metallic 50's Bathroom Green flopping to Puke Yellow Gold. The Mazda 6 has nice forms, but Troy Lee did not design the car's sheet metal.

      Try again, try harder...

      looks like it was tuned by a bunch of 17 yrs old

      The rear wing is disputable at best, but overall it's a rather nice mod. The stock wing that's standard on a JDM Mazda6 liftback is much nicer.

      But of course, nothing beats these incredibly sculpted front fenders/wheelarches/whatever. Troy Lee did a good job letting them alone.

        I'm with you here. The wing does't match the shape of the rear, but otherwise, I don't mind the mods.

      eye on NASCAR, much?

      course the body would never fit the template so the fans would love it...
