Mazda’s all-new 2016 MX-5 Miata is still a few months away from hitting the showroom floor, but already we’re getting a glimpse of its personalization potential. Mazda displayed an accessorized example of its soon-to-arrive sports roadster at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show.
The 2016 Mazda MX-5 Accessories Concept is finished in “Ceramic Metallic” paint and fitted with an aero body kit that includes a front air dam, side sill extensions, a rear bumper skirt, and rear lip spoiler. The carbon-fiber luggage rack fitted to the trunk lid weighs a mere two pounds. The rolling stock is upgraded to forged black 17-inch BBS wheels with lightweight Brembo brakes and red-finished calipers.
P.S. If you’ve noticed—no, your eyes aren’t deceiving you… this concept Miata is a foreign-market right-hand-drive car.
The Mazda MX-5 Miata has traditionally been one of the most aftermarket-friendly cars around, so it’s no surprise that the all-new 2016 model will follow suit. Many Miata buyers are hardcore driving enthusiasts, and some of them are no doubt wringing their hands in anticipation of the new model’s launch. Seeing this car won’t make their wait any easier.
