Mazda Design has decided to play with the versatility of the latest generation MX-5 Miata and will report to the SEMA Las Vegas show in November with the stylish MX-5 RF Kuro and performance enhanced Speedster Evolution.
The Speedster Evolution is a hardcore take on the model presented last year – with Mazda engineers stripping the roadster of all unneeded elements to get the weight down by over 100 pounds from last year’s 2,078-pound concept. The designers then chose a minimalist approach by painting the show car in White Ether with black accents. Of course, since we’re talking about a bonkers of a show car, don’t bet on the windshield-less Miata to arrive in a showroom near you.
On the other hand, we could see the Kuro arrive at dealerships maybe as a special edition model later on during the life cycle. That’s because instead of stripping the roadster down to its bare essentials, the MX-5 RF Kuro is looking to be fashionable. The word Kuro means “charcoal” in Japanese, so the concept has this dark gray color with a semi-matte metallic finish. Aside from the bespoke shade, Mazda also used a set of 17-inch Rays alloys in a matching shade and the engineers treated the car to an adjustable suspension taken from the Global MX-5 Cup cars.
