For the 2013 SEMA Show , Mazda prepared "Club Sport" treatments for both the Mazda3 and Mazda6 that completely transform the look of the models. The Club Sport 6 concept features a menacing Mazda Design-exclusive Composite Grey finish and a Brilliant Black rooftop, combined with motorsport-inspired badging in neutral gray, black and red.
The special Club Sport graphics featured on this concept car have a varying line frequency and width, giving them a sense of movement.
This is the first Mazda6 production model shown to the North American market with a SKYACTIV-D 2.2-liter, clean-diesel engine. This engine will be offered on the production version Mazda6 starting the spring of 2014, and it will pump out 172 horsepower and 309 pound-feet of torque.
The SKYACTIV-D 2.2-liter engine did see some use in the Mazda6 during the GRAND-AM Rolex GX Series.

Gallery Mazda Club Sport 6 Concept
Both a Mazda3 and Mazda6 were given "Club Sport" treatments, a motorsports-inspired motif of neutral grays, blacks and reds represented in not-so-subtle angular lines reminiscent of a car speeding past your line of sight. Featuring a Mazda Design-exclusive Composite Grey finish and Brilliant Black rooftop, the Club Sport 6 Concept is outfitted with a 14.0:1 low-compression SKYACTIV-D 2.2-liter clean diesel engine. Although this vehicle features a European-specification engine with an output of 129 kW at 4,500 rpm and 420 nM of torque at 2,000 rpm, the North American clean diesel will be available in late spring of next year. The SKYACTIV-D 2.2L engine was most recently seen on U.S. shores during the final season of the GRAND-AM Rolex GX Series, where the rookie Mazda6 took the checkered flag nine straight times and finished the year with manufacturers and rookie-of-the-year driver’s championship honors.
The exterior surface is painted with custom Club Sport graphics, featuring varying line frequency and width to create a sense of movement. A Mazda Design custom accessory aero kit was installed, which features front, rear and side diffusers as well as a rear spoiler – all in a contrasting Brilliant Black gloss. The Club Sport 6 sits on Rays 57 Motorsport G07FXX 20-inch Black and Machining-colored 10-spoke wheels wrapped in sticky Yokohama S.drive® 245/35R20 tires. Suspension is courtesy of an H&R spring kit while custom Brembo two-piece, six-piston 380x32 drilled brake rotors and a Racing Beat exhaust add the final sporty touches.
