It is fair to say that Mazda MX-5 Spyder is going to be one of the most interesting concept cars to be on display at the 2011 SEMA. The main reason for that is obviously that diminutive canvas it calls a ‘roof’, which somewhat confirms early reports stating that Mazda MX-5’s next generation will be super light.
The MX-5 Spyder boasts a really aggressive-looking style, lowered ride height and Advan RS 17″ wheels with Yokohama performance tyres, while its signature grenadine-red soft-top is the result of the cooperation between Mazda North America and Magna Car Top Systems. The car is powered by a tuned-up version of the MX-5’s standard 160 hp 2.0-liter engine, which has also been modified in order to run on isobutanol, a biofuel used by the Mazda/Dyson Racing team in the American Le Mans Series. Other remarkable features of this concept car include Brembo braking system as well as upgraded air-intake and exhaust systems, while the interiors make large use of leather and suede coupled with Silk Gray Metallic-colored trim.
