Mazda sure knows how to impress as it prepares for the upcoming 2016 SEMA Auto Show two special versions of its famous roadster. The Mazda MX-5 Speedster Evolution is a lighter and faster version of the MX-5, which will cut about 160kg from the original while the Mazda MX-5 RF Kuro is a new interpretation of the new Mazda MX-5 with a retractable hardtop and will definitely wow audiences.

Mazda MX-5 Speedster Evolution
Two images of the Mazda Mx-5 Speedster Evolution has been provided by the car manufacturer. This is enough for any Mazda fans to be all excited as the model aims to go a step beyond last year's already awesome Speedster version. It is a sport in which Mazda has omitted anything that was not necessary to enjoy, including any roof or windshield and hood. The result is spectacular, a sports reminiscent of those sports racing cars of the past decades.
What is surprising is the fact that this Mazda MX-5 Speedster Evolution has gone so far in their weight loss therapy, relative to the Speedster introduced last year. On the scale, it weighs around 900 kilograms and the savings over a standard Mazda MX-5 is above 160 kilograms, according to TopGear.
Mazda MX-5 Kuro
The Mazda MX-5 Kuro has opted for a less radical solution, but no less interesting. This Mazda MX-5 RF has increased its visual appeal with matte paint finish with metallic reflections in tone coal or coal Kuro in Japanese. It has a set of 17-inch RAYS forged wheels and adjustable suspensions inherited from the Mazda MX-5 Cup. It is a sexy looking thing as it sits, and Cup suspension should make it handle even more like a go-kart, according to AutoBlog.
In the coming days, more details will be known of this two Mazda MX-5 versions to be presented at SEMA 2016, which will open its doors this week. So far neither of these preparations will be marketed. A real pity. So fans will just need to settle on watching the video below and drooling on them.
