Dustin Says I wanted a car that was great looking, not over-the-top and still usable every day. I love that no one knows what my car really is, then I drop the clutch and it rockets off, leaving them in my dust with their jaws dropped. The Mazdaspeed 6 is a great handling car and is very fun to play with. This car is my weekend toy and is babied to the extreme, and I plan on having it for quite a long time. There are still some things I want to do to it in the future: upgrade to a twins-scroll turbo, a bigger brake setup with drilled and slotted rotors, a carbon-fiber hood/trunk lid, and even a widebody kit.
We Say Sleepers are great, and we can imagine this Speed 6 leaves plenty of bewildered people in the rearview mirror. Dustin’s plans to continue to upgrade the performance of his sedan are right up our alley, too — hopefully, we don’t see him at any stoplights anytime soon.
