For 20 years, Mazda always had the recipe for their MX-5 Miata convertible the same. Light-weight, small-engine, and rear-wheel-drive. Plus, it's always the cheapest two-seater convertible out there. Now, for this September's 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, Mazda decided to add more to the MX-5's recipe, as this MX-5 Superlight Concept.Design:
So what had Mazda done in this MX-5 Superlight Concept? Well, the stripped out, lightweight MX-5 comes with no windshield and a sportier chassis setup, while we also noticed the absence of visible door handles and the bucket sport seats in the interior.
Mazda says that the MX5 Superlight Concept features lightweight technology that improves performance, handling, fuel economy and reduces CO2 emissions. Although Mazda didn't reveal any information about the Superlight Concept, but guess to carry-over the stadard 1.8L and 2.0L out of the production MX-5. However, Mazda claims that the vehicle is just a show car, but expect Mazda to produce the Superlight in a limited run in the very near future.
So when Frankfurt Motor Show starts, we'll be getting the full picture on the Superlight Concept. Stay tuned.
