Mazda MX-5 Spyder Concept gives roadster some performance, efficiency upgrades

Mazda MX-5 Miata fans are being spoiled today at the 2011 SEMA Show with two concepts of the world’s best-selling two-seat roadster.

The first is the Mazda MX-5 Miata Spyder, which features a single-panel grenadine-red soft-top made by Haartz Corporation. Its design, a collaborative effort between MNAO Design and Magna Car Top Systems, offers an even lower slung stance of the MX-5 without sacrificing headroom – or whatever little there was in the first place.

The exterior of the Mazda MX-5 Spyder is painted Stratosphere White with 17-inch wheels wrapped in Yokohama AO48 225/45R17 performance tires.

Power for the Mazda MX-5 Spyder comes from the same 2.0 liter 4-cylinder turbo engine. The concept is fueled by BP’s isobutanol – a biofuel that offers top notch performance with little impact on the environment. The concept also features a lightweight lithium-ion racing battery made by Braille Battery.  It also features a Racing Beat header, intake and exhaust muffler as well as a MazdaSpeed coil over kit and Brembo brakes.
