Perhaps as a way of teasing its loyal fans, or more likely just to keep itself at the top of everyone’s news feeds Mazda unwrapped a special version of its new MX-5 Miata at the Chicago Auto Show.
Called the Accessories Design Concept this roadster is dressed to impress. It wears an aero kit that includes a new front air dam, side-sill extensions and a reworked rear. It’s basically the same stuff that was found on the MX-5 Global Cup car that debuted at SEMA.
Brembo brakes with bright-red calipers stand in stark contrast to the body’s metallic paint and undoubtedly give drivers fade-free stopping power, time after time after. Wispy-looking forged BBS wheels are slathered in black paint and wrapped in sticky 205/45R17 tires.
The car also features a luggage rack so you can carry more than just a bag of oranges or half a case of bottled water. This accessory is made from carbon fiber, weighs less than two pounds and features an integrated CHMSL, that’s shorthand for Center High Mount Stop Lamp.
The new MX-5 is shaping up to be an awesome little car and it’s interesting what Mazda has done with this particular concept because. You see, back in 1989 the first-generation Miata actually made its global debut right here in Chicago. The 2016 model is slated to go on sale this summer.
