Mazda is bringing two concept versions of the MX-5 Miata to the SEMA show in Las Vegas next week, the MX-5 Miata Speedster Evolution and MX-5 RF Kuro.
This isn’t the first time that we’re seeing a Speedster version of the MX-5 Miata, since Mazda first introduced the MX-5 Speedster to the world at the 2015 SEMA show. The newest Speedster Evolution is definitely an evolution of the original concept, since t’s now more than 100 lbs. lighter. At just under 2,000 lbs., MX-5 Speedster Evolution is approximately 350 lbs. lighter than a stock MX-5 soft top.

The MX-5 RF Kuro concept is based on the 2017 MX-5 Retractable Fastback. It is painted in a semi-matte metallic concept color developed in-house called “Kuro,” which means “charcoal” in Japanese. It rides on 17×7.5-inch RAYS forged wheels, 215/45R17 BFGoodrich Rival G-Force tires and the adjustable suspension from the Battery Tender Global Mazda MX-5 Cup presented by BFGoodrich Tires.
