Mazda to Debut New MX-5 GT Concept at Goodwood, Mulling Production Model

Mazda will have a special treat for visitors at next weekend's Goodwood Festival Speed as the Japanese car maker will debut its road legal 205hp MX-5 GT Concept that will not only go on display at its stand, but will also take part in the hill climb in the ‘First Glance’ category. Inspired by the MX-5 GT race car, the concept has a black and orange exterior with a carbon fibre front splitter, a rear diffuser and a center-mounted dual exhaust system.

Interior pictures were not released, but Mazda says the cabin has been equipped with Recaro sport seats, a roll cage and a "number of carbon enhancements that help reduce weight." Power comes from a naturally-aspirated 2.0-liter petrol engine that develops 205 hp (153 kW / 208 PS). Performance specifications haven't been announced, but the car also features a sport-tuned suspension and "road slicks."
