10k Flash: 2006 Mazdaspeed 6

The Mazda 6 is a 4 door sedan from the Japanese manufacturer Mazda, best known for its wild rotary powered two door RX-7/8 and simple yet efficient corner carving MX-5 convertible.  Mazda built a version to compete with other sporty sedans and sold it as the Mazdaspeed 6 from 2005-2007.  This 2006 Mazdaspeed 6 is for sale on ebay for $10,900 obo, and located at a Dealer’s lot in Philadelphia, PA.

This single owner Mazdaspeed 6 is a nice 1970’s shade of poo-brown and is currently sitting lower than stock.

The Mazdaspeed 6 has a 2.3 liter direct injection turbocharged and intercooled
gasoline engine that puts 274 horsepower and 280 ft-lbs of torque into
an all wheel drive system.  This example has had a few aftermarket parts put on it and is probably good for a few more ponies~ 300-ish.  As a ‘plus’ the dealer says he “cleaned the turbo” – we aren’t sure what this means and hope he used the proper hypo-allergenic soaps that are designed for washing turbochargers.
Inside the Mazdaspeed 6 has a pair of sporty bucket seats and a basic economy sedan feel.  However, it does have nice steering feel and weight – something Mazda always does right.
This Mazda has been de-badged of its Mazdaspeed 6 emblems and front logo making it a bit more stealthy.

(editor’s note: This particular example with the carbon fiber front grill and debadged look should get a Nixon rating on the Richard scale – but a more stock example would be closer to the Lionheart or Hammond.)
