The Mazda MX-5 Superlight is a stripped down show car which was first revealed at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. The vehicle was designed at Mazda’s studio in Oberursel, Germany.

The Superlight is a vehicle designed to capture the essence of the MX-5. Essentially lightweight, no frills and impeccable handling. The weight reduction has also been designed to improve fuel economy and reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

Powering the Mazda MX-5 Superlight is a 1.8 litre, 4 cylinder engine which puts out 126 horsepower @ 6,500 rpm, and 167 Nm of torque @ 4,500 rpm. Mated to a five speed manual gearbox this gives the car a 0-60 mph time of 8.9 seconds.

The exterior design of the Mazda MX-5 Superlight is basically the same as the standard MX-5 but the windscreen, side windows and roof have been deleted, and behind the seats are a pair of integrated roll bars. The suspension settings have also been altered to offer a sportier drive.

The interior of the MX-5 Superlight is where most of the weight saving comes from. Racing spec lightweight carbon fibre seats replace the standard units, and the dashboard has been replaced with a single piece carbon fibre dash which also helps cover the space left when the windscreen was removed.
