The second generation Mazda MX-6 and its twin Ford
Probe are a relatively rare sight on the roadways in 2016. At first glance, this appears to be a well kept, stock looking MX-6 (which is a rare sight in and of itself). The special sauce in this car is found under the hood with the addition of the JDM KLZE engine. The ZE engine also displaces 2.5 liters, but has a higher 10:1 compression ratio and different intake set up that make the motor good for an additional 36 hp over the USA spec engine.
The MX-6 coupe has a trunk versus the fold down rear seats and hatchback found on the Probe.
The LS model of the MX-6 was the luxury model with optional leather seats.
Listen to the music put out by this sweet revving KLZE engine.
