LAS VEGAS - Mazda takes its Zoom-Zoom philosophy to a whole new level with its sporty Club Sports Concepts at the 2013 Sema show in Las Vegas.

The automaker gave both the Mazda3 and Mazda6 "Club Sport" treatments which features a motorsport-inspired motif of gray, black and red tones in angular lines to portray the image of a speeding car.

READY TO LAUNCH

The Club Sport 6 Concept has a 14.0:1 low-compression SkyActiv-D 2.2-liter clean diesel engine. Although the model houses a European-spec  engine good for 129kW at 4500rpm and 420Nm at 2000rpm, the North American diesel will be available by the first half of 2014.

It has custom Club Sport graphics, a Mazda Design custom accessory aero kit with front, rear and side diffusers as well as a rear spoiler. It rides on Rays 57 Motorsport G07FXX 20” 10-spoke wheels wrapped in 245/35R20 tyres.

The Club Sport 3 Concept features many similarities with its Mazda6 sibling but sports a slate white paint job. It has metallic silver lines along the wheel arches, the base of the side skirts and the contours of the doors and C-pillars. It has wider black and gray patterns direction contrasted with vibrant red vinyl.

Under the bonnet is a 2.5-liter petrol engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission derived from Mazda's CX-5 compact SUV.
