The Japanese company is preparing a surprise for the Goodwood Festival Speed, an event which is just around the corner.
The new MX-5 GT Concept goes as a road legal model and packs a revised 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit offering 205 horsepower. The unit is coupled to a standard manual transmission, all the modifications being made by Jota Sport specialists.
On the other hand, the Japanese roadster gets an orange finish with a carbon fiber front splitter, boot spoiler and rear diffuser, new alloy wheels in a black finish and also a black hard top.
Inside, there are numerous carbon fiber components and also a pair of Recaro seats. Mazda will race the new MX-5 GT Concept at the hill climb competition but in the First Glance category.
“Drivers for the Goodwood Festival of Speed are regular Mazda racers Mark Ticehurst and Owen Mildenhall and kart racer Jade Paveley, who at just 19 years-old, is one of the youngest drivers at the festival,” says Mazda.
