Set to brilliant for Mazda at abutting week’s Frankfurt Motor Show, the abstraction has been developed as article of a altogether present to itself, adulatory 20 years for the accepted MX-5 sports car. The MX-5’s folding roof stand, aperture handles and avant-garde windscreen accept been replaced by a revised rear accouter with automated rollbars, bland door-skins and a dash-top that melds seamlessly with the bodywork. The MX-5 Superlight – as its name suggests – has been congenital as a abstraction for avant-garde failing architecture techniques.

Bilstein suspension, Eibach springs and a 30mm lower ride acme should ensure a drive as activating as the car’s administration suggests. Motivated by the aforementioned 93 kW 1,8-litre petrol agent and five-speed manual of the road-going MX-5, a claimed 8.9 additional dart to 100km/h shaves a additional off the approved model’s time.

Now you would apprehend that the guys at Mazda would bandy article absolutely appropriate beneath the awning of the Superlight, afterwards all this is declared to be a analgesic abstraction car for Frankfurt and an ceremony special. But abominably for all of us, they didn't. They saddled this abundant little car with a Euro-spec 1.8 liter 4 butt that produces 126 hp. I know... sad. With all the advance of a summer's breeze, performance... well, it suffers. 0 to 60 mph comes in a mini-van-esque 8.9 seconds
