There’s no chance you can wipe the smile off of the Mazda 2Turbo’s face because quite frankly, this is the most awesome Mazda 2 we’ve ever seen.

Details behind the car’s specs have yet to be revealed - we actually found the photos on Mazda’s Flickr page - although the caption it came with pretty much sums up what this car is all about: “One of our most powerful turbocharged engines in our lightest platform. ’Nuff said!”

The name seems to suggest that the race-spec hatch will come with a turbocharged engine that could potentially be akin to something a lot more powerful than the car’s existing 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 100 horsepower.

Exactly what kind of powertrain lies under that hood? At this point, it’s anybody’s guess. But if we were to take a little stab at it, we’re guessing that it could be somewhere along the lines of a 2.3-liter unit that pumps out 244 horsepower. It seems a little outrageous given the car’s current capabilities, but then again, that’s what the SEMA Auto Show is all about.

Whatever the case may be, we’re itching to find out what the Japanese automaker has in store for us with this gnarly little beast that’s already looking like it’s armed and ready to tear up race tracks from here to Timbuktu.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

This is the most amazing Mazda car I’ve ever seen. The exterior design caught my attention. I love the interior of this Mazda Turbo 2 with Katzkin leather in black and yellow color.

It looks like laughing. In the perspective of the animated cars in the movie “Cars”. The bumper seems happy. Well, who would not feel extreme happiness if this Mazda Turbo is yours? I love the art that they attached on the exterior.

I have to agree that this is the most awesome Mazda 2 vehicles today! It looks cool on that especially on its graphics. However, I’m still disappointed on its weak engine.

Mazda Turbo is absolutely looks so cool and cute on its platform styling and most especially on its simple graphic design, and the fact that it is on a turbo engine. I am hoping that it could have a great speed performance.

It is so much for a good look! I am hoping that this time they already boost the engine of their cars, most especially on this one, for the fact that it is a race car.

I hope that they also include some pictures of its interior features, I’m just only hoping that it is impressive as well as on its exterior appearance.

Well, the aesthetic design of this Mazda Turbo 2 is absolutely looking great on that. I’m just quite curious if what will be the interior of this one will look like.

The Mazda Turbo 2 is very cute on its platform and other exterior detailing! smiley I just only hope that it also had a striking and comfortable interior, anyway, if I’m not mistaken this one is a race car, right?
