LAS VEGAS, Nevada - The all-new 2014 Mazda3 and Mazda6 models were unveiled by the Mazda North American Operations' (MNAO)at the annual Specialty Equipment Market Association (Sema) show in November 2013. The four concept vehicles showcased design and styling elements to pay tribute to the brand's racing heritage.

The Vector 3 Concept brings a new dimension with dynamics shifting from fast to fashion. According to Mazda, if style is your thing, this model offers a different take on controlled assertiveness.


It has a ‘soul red’ paint job and gives off the same sultry flair as a little black dress that could leave you breathless but this red hue comes from a Mazda Design custom blend of deep crimson in varying shades of depth to “highlight the ‘fractured line’ treatment of the paint finish's vector pattern”, says the automaker.

And the paint is just not a seductive little number; it complements the way the reflections bounce off the car’s variable shapes. Mazda says even though the car’s pattern is inspired from fashion runways, the Vector 3’s character is driven by an active lifestyle and performance wear.

Highlights include a Rays Volk Racing Original G25 19” wheels wrapped in Yokohama S.drive 225/40R19 performance tyres. Other goodies include an H&R spring kit and Brembo two-piece custom four-piston drilled rotors.
