Mazda MX-5 Spyder Concept Showcased at 2011 SEMA

Press Release : Mazda Showcases Grand Ideas in Small Cars at 2011 SEMA Show with “Green” Roadster and Tiny Turbo

The Mazda MX-5 Spyder is a concept of the roadster featuring a sweeping, single-panel grenadine-red soft-top made by Haartz Corporation.

The MX-5 Spyder’s design is a collaborative effort between MNAO Design and Magna Car Top Systems, offers an even lower slung stance of the MX-5 without sacrificing headroom.  The MX-5 Spyder has been painted Stratosphere White and features a Yokohama rubber-and-rims set of AO48 225/45R17 performance tires matched with 17-inch, 10-spoke ADVAN RS wheels in Gun Metal Metallic.

The cabin area is accentuated by tanned Saddle black-leather seats with Aqua leather accents and Coal Ash suede inserts.   Subtle Spider Silk Gray Metallic-colored trim pieces on the doors and dash panels tastefully adorn the mostly black interior, which is finished off with customized floor mats by Star West.   A MAZDASPEED short-throw shifter adds a tasty reminder to the MX-5’s motorsports pedigree.

The Mazda MX-5 Spyder is powered by Mazda’s MZR 2.0-liter engine which is fueled by BP’s isobutanol.  Although similar to how ethanol is produced from agricultural feedstock, isobutanol does not compromise vehicle performance for the sake of fuel economy and can be added to the current fuel distribution infrastructure without requiring modifications in blending facilities, storage tanks and retail station pumps.  Isobutanol’s compatibility with existing technology and infrastructures is a significant step toward meeting the demand in renewable fuels for transportation.

Another fuel-saving, engine-efficient feature of the MX-5 Spyder is a lightweight lithium-ion racing battery made by Braille Battery.  The lead-free advanced battery system is RoHS compliant and constructed of non-hazardous materials, has a high charge retention and offers a longer life cycle than comparable standard batteries.  A Racing Beat header, intake and exhaust muffler as well as a MAZDASPEED coil over kit and Brembo brakes complete the vehicle’s mechanics.
