Mazda is bringing plenty of goodies to the 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon.
Although the Japanese automaker isn’t showcasing any official Mazdaspeed vehicles at this year’s show in Japan, it will bring three Racing concepts based on the existing MX-5 Miata, CX-3 and Mazda6 models. The MX-5 and CX-3 are finished in a jet black exterior paint with red accents and sportier wheels, an aero kit and Alcantara interior. The Mazda6 sedan is more conservative, shunning the red accents for a more all-black theme.
To contrast the black Mazda MX-5, the company will also showcase a spec racing model in white livery complete with roll cage and tow hooks. There will also be a rally-prepped Mazda2 that has had its interior stripped out and replaced with bucket seats, racing harnesses and a roll cage.
Rounding out Mazda’s display at the 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon will be a few familiar faces including the Global Cup roadster, RX-Vision concept and LM55 Vision Gran Turismo. Hopefully it’s a preview of things to come from the Zoom-Zoom brand, which is slowly falling behind its Japanese counterparts without a performance-minded sub-brand.
