Mazda MX-5 Superlight Concept to debut at IAA
Mazda MX-5 is a superb roadster not because of what it has, but because of what it hasn’t! It is plain simple with no unnecessary electronic stuffs or luxury goods. and that makes it very brilliant to drive and yet quit affordable. Now Mazda apparently got a bit carried away as it reveals a stripped-out version of the car called Superlight concept, which comes with… nothing!
Superlight, as its name suggests focuses even more on simplicity. It has no roof, no door handles, it doesn’t even come with a windscreen! But, it has rollbars like those of classic race cars, and it has sport seats, rear diffuser and bigger wheels. Hopefully Mazda gives it a powerful engine to perfect the recipe!
However it’s still a concept which is set for debut at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, and it is still unknown whether Mazda will put it into production. Recently they unveiled a 20th anniversary special edition for Japan, now this Superlight which is designed in Germany can be the European equivalent!
