While most of our attention is focused on the upcoming 2013 Detroit Auto Show, people in Japan are preparing themselves for the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon — not as popular as Detroit, but still a pretty good chance to see some cool upgrade packages offered for current models.
Mazda, for example, announced an impressive lineup as six vehicles to be displayed in Tokyo, one of the most impressive one being the Atenza Racer (known as the Mazda6 in the U.S. market). According to the first details we have on this cool model, the new Atenza Racer has been designed as a "response to a request of the user who is running the circuit, and comfort."
The model features M’z CUSTOM (M’s custom) aero parts, Brembo brake calipers and engine upgrades. On the inside, Mazda installed sporty leather seats and a set of alloy pedals. No details on the final specifications have been provided just yet, but we expect to learn them pretty soon.
