Mazda Reveals MX-5 GT Concept ahead of Goodwood

Mazda’s model range isn’t exactly filled with tens of hot new cars like BMW’s M division, so for this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, the Japanese automaker had to make something different.

What they chose to do is to create a racing MX-5 for the road, which will assault the hillclimb circuit at Goodwood with its powerful engine and stiff setup.

The MX-5 GT is a production-intent concept built by Jota Sport on the hardtop version of the car. It features carbon fiber aerodynamic enhancements, like a front chin spoiler, a rear diffuser, boot lip spoiler, as well as wheelarch extensions. Inside, Jota fitted Recaro seats as well as a number of carbon fiber accents.

Under the bonnet is a 2.0-liter normally aspirated engine that has been boosted from 161 PS to a very inspiring 208 PS.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
