    Well it's a classic barchetta. Those two cars fit in the category.

    I think you're missing the point...

    Five speed manual because it's the gearbox mated to the 1.8 litre engine in the regular MX-5.

    Lightweight cars are good, but that's what the regular soft-top MX-5 should weight.

    OK, the point is publicity, but what Mazda shoes is a 1000 kg car differs from the production version in that it doesn't have a windscreen and that they have stripped the carpets on the interior (not the dash etc).

    If it was 600 kg it would be interesting. But it the actual fact is that it is heavier than an MR2, and the MR2 was introduced 5-10 years ago.

    They can do better than that....

    995 kg? That's disgusting for something that calls itself lightweight. Surely they could have cut it down to (at most) 750 kg if they really tried.
    Buying a car and not driving it is like buying a meal and not eating it.
