    Mazda Roadster Coupe

    Mazda Motor Corporation has released two-seat "Roadster Coupe."
    The much-anticipated sports coupe is available by customer order from Mazda and Mazda Anfini dealerships across Japan.


    Mazda Roadster Coupe Type A

    The Roadster Coupe is a two-seat sports coupe based on Mazda's popular Roadster. With its responsive handling and exhilarating performance, the Roadster truly embodies Mazda's brand personality. The Roadster Coupe further builds on the fun to drive characteristics of the original Roadster and is designed to appeal to customers who value impressive styling and driving performance. Production of this vehicle was achieved with technologies developed by Mazda Engineering and Technology Co. Ltd. The 100% Mazda-owned subsidiary specializes in technologies for the development of limited production models.

    Major Features
    -
    Refined Coupe Style
    The stylish Roadster Coupe further advances on the design of its base model the Roadster. Hand modeling and the latest CAD technology were employed in the process to create a semi-classic feel that combines sporty and dynamic features with functional styling. The Roadster Coupe is the only domestically produced rear drive coupe with an engine size less than two liters.

    -
    High rigidity body structure
    During development of the vehicle's closed body, engineers revised the body structure in order to enhance body rigidity. This was achieved with a total weight increase of only ten kilograms. These improvements further advance on the fun to drive qualities of the original Roadster.

    -
    Choice of 4 grades with 3 package types
    Aimed at customers who value uniqueness and refined styling, the Roadster Coupe comes in four grades with a choice of three package types. Production of Type A and Type E vehicles is limited to 200 units and 150 units, respectively. 1) Roadster Coupe/Type S: Basic front design same as the Roadster
    2) Type A: Authentic design reminiscent of traditional racing cars
    3) Type E: Refined and elegant design

    Mazda does a lot of photos like that with everything cut out of the background. I think it makes the photos boring.

    In the April 2005 issue of Top Gear magazine, they showed the new MX-5 and said that it could either be had with a conventional soft-top or a folding metal roof...and with either the 'rifle-bolt' manual transmission or a semi-auto

    Mine would be a manual with a folding metal roof... in yellow or red

    In Japan the model was simply known as the Mazda Roadster.
    If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.
