Under the bonnet, you can find a supercharged 2.0-litre four cylinder petrol engine, together with an intercooler, special Cosworth pistons and connecting rods. A custom exhaust system, reprogrammed software, fuel injectors, metal sport catalysts are connected to a transmission with a sports clutch.

All the above mentioned and rather overhauled powertrain has a maximum output of 237hp and peak torque of 274Nm maxing out at 240km/h. In the cabin, you find a suede-trimmed steering wheel and leather/alcantara finished Recaro sport seats.

To be honest we have no idea what is the motive of this prototype as Mazda hasnít announced plans to put it in production.
