It’s plenty of fun even with just 100-hp, but Mazda isn’t called the Zoom Zoom brand for nothing. Revealed today at the 2011 SEMA Show is a tuner car concept dubbed the Mazda2 Turbo. Rather than some bolt-on turbocharger this sub-compact gets a complete swap from its big-brother, the Mazdaspeed3.

Borrowing that 2.3-liter direct-injection 4-cylinder, power more than doubles to 263-hp with almost triple the amount of torque at 280 lb-ft.

Other upgrades include a custom aero kit, 17-inch OZ racing wheels and a Brembo big brake upgrade.
