Mazda3 MPS Extreme

Mazda has unveiled its Mazda3 MPS Extreme at the Sydney Motor Show. Based on the popular Mazda3, the MPS has been tuned by Mazda's Australia Motorsport manager, Allan Horsley, to produce 281 horsepower and 313 lb-ft of torque from the car's 2.3-liter DISI turbo engine. Mazda didn't release any updated performance stats but did say that the upgrades should be good for about a 20% improvement in performance.

The Mazda3 MPS also includes a free-flowing two-inch exhaust system and a revised suspension that sits 25 mm lower than the standard model. Wheels are upgraded from 18 inch alloys to 19 inch BBS Motorsport wheels.

The exterior of the Mazda3 MPS is finished in red paint with black stripes along the hood and rear fenders, as well as a black roof.
