Based on the limited-production 2002 model year Mazda MP3, the 2003 model year Mazdaspeed Protege is a substantial step forward in the performance arena. Working in partnership with world-class automotive racecar engineers on chassis, drivetrain and Turbo development, Mazda has produced its highest performing, most responsive Protege to date. Available in the fourth quarter of 2002, and limited to only 2,000 units for the U.S. and Canada, the 2003 Mazdaspeed Protege boasts an aggressive appearance and enhanced performance package, including an inter-cooled Turbocharger, limited-slip differential, ultra low-profile tires, larger wheels, more powerful European-specification four-wheel disc brakes, and a 450-watt MP3 audio system by Kenwood.
Mazda selected Callaway Cars, Inc. to assist its engineers in taking the Mazda 2.0-liter DOHC I-4 engine to a much higher performance level. Pumping up the Mazdaspeed Protege's heart rate is a Garrett T25 Turbocharger system. The Turbocharger incorporates the latest in aerodynamic and ball-bearing technology. With Garrett technology on board, the vehicle gains increased acceleration without sacrificing overall efficiency.
