Las Vegas, Nevada, October 31, 2006.
Arachnophobia is known as an abnormal fear of spiders, and the Troy Lee Designs Mazda CX-7 is soon to be known as the cure. For the 2006 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, the Mazda CX-7 will turn "spider haters" into "spider lovers" with one quick glimpse.
The Troy Lee Designs "Phobia" CX-7 takes the all-new 2007 CX-7 to the extreme by creating a piece of art that uses the CX-7 as the artist's canvas. The exterior features custom paint by Troy Lee Designs, with paint prep and detailing by L&G Enterprises, paint material by PPG and body modifications by South End Kustoms, to create an exterior design that is truly distinctive. To give the CX-7 a high-performance look and feel, 20" Volk Wheels, 255/45-20 Yokohama Tires and window tinting by A-1 Tinting were added.
Performance inspiration is derived from Touring GT racing and rally racing. Suspension modification by Eibach Springs, cross-drilled big brake kit by Wilwood Engineering and custom brake fabrication by JD Performance builds upon the CX-7's already superior handling performance. Other performance components include an off-center hood scoop, bigger turbo with more boost and larger intercooler, wider in-bumper intakes and larger front grille.
Inside, custom leather seats by Katzkin and custom floor mats by Intro-Tech Automotive take the CX-7 to new levels of creativity. And if you didn't get enough Phobia from the outside, there's plenty more inside. In addition, an Azentek 2DIN radio replacement PC that includes navigation, rear-seat DVD entertainment system, voice-activated Internet and e-mail capability and an AM/FM radio completes the package.
2007 Mazda CX-7.
Launched in May, 2006, the 2007 CX-7 is a highly styled crossover SUV with a decided soul of a sportscar. Produced entirely on Mazda-derived platform architecture, the five-passenger CX-7 embodies an astute blend of sports car verve and SUV practicality, resulting in a fun-to-drive SUV that represents everything a Mazda SUV should be.
Prominent front fenders, A-pillars rooted at the body's leading edge, a sharply raked windshield and Mazda's signature five-pointed grille clearly register this new model as a Mazda. CX-7 is fitted with a turbocharged and intercooled 2.3-liter four-cylinder direct-injection gasoline engine similar to that fitted to the MAZDASPEED3, but producing 244 horsepower in this application. Mazda CX-7 delivers an estimated 23 mpg in combined driving.
Inside, the CX-7 is sporty with a high degree of craftsmanship. To draw drivers inside, there's a three-dial instrument cluster, a console supporting the shifter within close reach, three-spoke steering wheel and firmly contoured front bucket seats, all provided with a high quality feel.
