Mazda has released a teaser image showing two MX-5 Miata adaptations headed to Las Vegas for SEMA.
Both are said to be “significantly lighter” than the standard MX-5 roadster. The production car already focuses on reduced heft with its 2,332-pound curb weight, however Mazda designers wanted to take the idea “to the extreme.”
The MX-5 Spyder is presented as a vintage roadster, reimagined with a modern design. It features a customized leather interior, a Mercury Silver paint scheme and a new brown top.
The MX-5 Speedster eschews from a top altogether, taking inspiration from “minimalist roadsters” of the 1950s. The open-air design is said to be even lighter than the Spyder.
“The Blue Ether-painted MX-5 Speedster is uncompromised in its approach to wind-in-the-hair driving, going so far as to eschew a traditional windshield for a lighter deflector,” the company says.
Additional details will likely be announced ahead of the show, scheduled for November 3-6.
