Mazda has launched its 2Evil Special concept car at the LA motor show.
The standard Mazda 2 was making its North American debut at LA and the firm showed off a 2-based concept car at the show to commemorate its arrival.
The Mazda 2Evil Special has been given a makeover by the firm's in-house tuning company, Mazdaspeed, and is described as being "a weekend track car that can function equally well as an urban commuter".
The 2Evil Special has a much more aggressive stance than the standard 2, sitting lower and featuring a new front spoiler and wider side skirts. A rear diffuser has been added, while the rear spoiler, so Mazda says, has been added to increase downforce and give it a race appearance.
The concept has been painted in Ceramic Grey and features lime green detailing on the wheels and door mirrors. Mazdaspeed and '55' transfers appear on the car - 55 being a tribute to the firm's 1991 Le Mans-winning 787B racer.
The changes are not just cosmetic, however. Mazda has fitted the 2Evil Special with 17-inch wheels equipped with 215/45 Yokohama Advan tyres, a new coilover suspension system and a Magna performance exhaust system.
