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.
