Mazda MX-5 Speedster

Mazda MX-5 Speedster

The Mazda MX-5 Speedster was one of two MX-5 based concept cars unveiled by the company at the 2015 SEMA show in Las Vegas. The concept is also extremely similar in vein to the MX-5 Superlight concept from 2009 which was based on the previous generation car.

The MX-5 Speedster was partially inspired by vintage roadsters. Stripped back and lightweight, the concept features carbon fibre doors and seats, as well as custom 16-inch RAYS 57 Extreme Gram Lights wheels. The MX-5 Speedster tips the scales at only 2080 lbs (943kg), and is also 30mm lower than the standard MX-5 thanks to an adjustable K&W coilover suspension system.

The concept also features a Racing Beat center-mount exhaust, Brembo brake calipers and vented discs, an interior retrimmed in Alcantara and carbon fiber Mu-Len Delta seats. However the most radical alteration is the removal of the regular windscreen and the fitting of a small wind deflector.

Powering the Mazda MX-5 Speedster is a Skyactive-G 2.0 litre 4-cylinder engine mated to a manual transmission.

The concept is based on the all-new MX-5 debuted earlier in 2015. Commenting on the concept Ken Saward, design manager at Mazda North America said, "The all-new 2016 MX-5 served as a blank canvas for our design team to create some truly one-of-a-kind cars, yet our SEMA concepts remain true to more than 25 years of MX-5 heritage."
