Mazda unveil the MX-5 Spyder and MX-5 Speedster concepts
Mazda have unveiled two design concepts the MX-5 Spyder and MX-5 Speedster, based on the all-new Mazda MX-5 at the 2-15 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. By taking the lightweight fun-to-drive roadster MX-5 specification and then reducing it further both concepts are set to enhance the open-air driving experience.
The MX-5 Spyder features a bikini top, Mercury Silver exterior, carbon fibre aero kit, grille intake, lightweight 17-inch Yokohama ADVAN Racing RS II wheels and a Spinneybeck PRIMA natural full-grain leather interior. Whilst the MX-5 Speedster pares the roadster back to the bare essentials – it even has a deflector in place of the windscreen – for an old school wind-in-the-hair sports car experience.
“Both MX-5 Spyder and MX-5 Speedster are uncompromising designs that highlight the core strengths of MX-5,” said Ken Saward, design manager at Mazda North American Operations. He and his colleagues at Mazda collaborated with various aftermarket parts suppliers and performance shops to create the two concepts. “With the all-new 2016 MX-5, we have a clean sheet to show how the aftermarket can go wild on our flagship sports car while staying true to its mission.”
Both models are on display at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, running until the 6th November.
