The second concept, Kuro, is a study about the MX-5 RF retractable hardtop. She got a similar sports treatment as cars entered in MX-5 Cup, while remaining registered for the road. The little roadster has the right to adjustable suspensions in an exhaust system OpenFlash Performance and a Brembo braking used in competition with dual piston calipers at the front.
The competition Sparco steering wheel enhances the sporty image, like the 215/45 tires BF Goodrich G-Force. And it owes its black color “semi-mat” to its name Kuro (く ろ) designating that color.
The MX-5 Speedster Evolution starred with the MX-5 Kuro Concept RF. The MX-5 also receives RF MX-5 Cup suspension, and Brembo front brakes used for said championship. His body mixes dark gray and black, metallic and matte, the term “Kuro” means “charcoal” in Japanese. It is based on forged black rims.
These two concept cars look set to be mass produced. Alas, there is little chance that this happens. Mazda has presented particular MX-5 Speedster (or Superlight) of several generations without that they are never produced. But there is always some hope!
