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."

Audi R8 5.2 FSI quattro by XXX-Performance

XXX-Performance has presented their own take on the Audi R8 V10 quattro. There is little doubt that this model will surely get you noticed on the road, but it may have gone a little too far with the exterior paint that is accurately identified as bilious green. The model has also been fitted with a set of 20-inch alloy wheels that are styled to match the body's color and are wrapped with Dunlop SP Sport Maxx tires.

The 5.2-liter V10 unit that resides in the engine bay has been boosted to 650PS (478kW/641hp) with an upgraded air flow system that includes a BMC carbon air-box as well as a high-end sports exhaust system. The tuner car also features an H&R coilover kit and G-Ride Airride system that lowers the models ride height. The interior has been treated to Alcantara and real leather upholstery as well as a set of Audi RS sports seats. Fortunately the XXX-Performance stylists have shied away from extending the extravagant exterior color to the cabin.
