A fleet of Mazda6 new SKYACTIV diesel cars were driven over a 24-hour-long eco-marathon, the Japanese sedan averaged 137.37 miles per hour (221 km/h), while the other two examples of the breed finished the run with average speeds within half a mile of the leading Mazda6. As such, the current FIA average speed record for diesel-powered production cars in the 2.0 – 2.5-liter category was surpassed by almost 7 mph (11 km/h).
