Does the idea of a Mazda MX-5 Miata with 205 horsepower – a useful bump over the stocker’s 167 ponies – sound like a good idea? How about one with an upgraded suspension, carbon fiber front splitter, rear diffuser and spoiler?
Still not good enough for you? Fine. Throw in a free-flowing exhaust with single center-mounted tailpipe, body-color roll hoops, sticky tires and a pair of Recaro seats. If we’re describing the Miata of your dreams, we suggest you tell Mazda how you feel – this exact machine, dubbed the MX-5 Miata GT Concept, will be on display at the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed, where it will make a run up the hill.
Mazda says it’s “seeking customer reaction” to the hotted-up sports car, which it says is inspired by its MX-5 GT race car. Mazda: We speak for all when we say, “If you build it, we will come.” Also on display at Goodwood will be the Mazda Takeri Concept and the company’s new CX-5 crossover.
