“Both MX-5 Spyder and MX-5 Speedster are uncompromising designs that highlight the core strengths of MX-5,” said Ken Saward, design manager, Mazda North American Operations. “The all-new 2016 MX-5 served as a blank canvas for our design team to create some truly one-of-a-kind cars, yet our SEMA concepts remain true to more than 25 years of MX-5 heritage.”

The MX-5 Spyder is inspired by vintage roadsters with its bikini top, Mercury Silver paint color, carbon fiber aero kit and its Prima natural leather seats. The MX-5 Speedster will give you the ultimate “wind-in-the-hair” driving experience, since it does away with a windshield.
