Mazda MX-5 Miata Spyder and Super 20 Concepts land in Las Vegas

Mazda
has given SEMA goers something to get excited about with a pair of MX-5 Miata concepts. The MX-5 Miata Spyder Concept has done away with the standard car's folding soft top or retractable hard top mechanism in favor of a lightweight grenadine-red canvas covering &agrave; la Porsche's Boxster Spyder. The look lends the already lithe roadster an even more svelte appearance, and the Spyder's 17-inch Advan alloys and Mazdaspeed coilovers ensure that the driver should have plenty of fun when the road turns twisty. Mazda has also rolled in quite a few excellent details, including etched brushed stainless Spyder badging on the front fenders and a clean MX-5 Spyder logo on the passenger-side dash.



While the 2.0-liter MZR four-cylinder underhood looks familiar, Mazda says the MX-5 Spyder runs on isobutanol, the same biofuel that powers in Mazda's/Dyson Racing ALMS car. To further the company's "Sustainable Zoom-Zoom" effort, the Spyder also has a lightweight lithium ion battery, among other changes.



Does the Spyder have a chance at production? Well, probably not the isobutanol powertrain, but a lighter model with a similar top configuration might have a shot. As Mazda's design director, Derek Jenkins, notes "...because the stock models are extraordinarily versatile, who's to say some elements of these SEMA concepts can't be ready for public consumption?" Sign us up.



The MX-5 Super 20 - which debuted last year - brings more of a motorsports flavor to the convertible. A fixed hardtop has replaced the standard folding mechanism and the interior has been stripped bare in favor of a full roll cage. Additional power comes courtesy of a DPTUNE ECU reflash, a 304-stainless steel header and exhaust. Racing Beat hollow front and rear sway bars, Mazdaspeed coilovers and a Mazdaspeed shock tower brace help lend sharper handling, too.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2011/11/01/mazda-mx-5-miata-spyder-and-super-20-concepts-land-in-las-vegas/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading Mazda MX-5 Miata Spyder and Super 20 Concepts land in Las Vegas[/url]</p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;">Mazda MX-5 Miata Spyder and Super 20 Concepts land in Las Vegas originally appeared on Autoblog on Tue, 01 Nov 2011 15:29:00 EST.  Please see our terms for use of feeds.</p><h6 style="clear: both; padding: 8px 0 0 0; height: 2px; font-size: 1px; border: 0; margin: 0; padding: 0;"></h6><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2011/11/01/mazda-mx-5-miata-spyder-and-super-20-concepts-land-in-las-vegas/" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent link to this entry">Permalink[/url]&nbsp;|&nbsp;<a href="http://www.autoblog.com/forward/20095831/" title="Send this entry to a friend via email">Email this[/url]&nbsp;|&nbsp;<a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2011/11/01/mazda-mx-5-miata-spyder-and-super-20-concepts-land-in-las-vegas/#comments" title="View reader comments on this entry">Comments[/url]
