A Japanese tuner has transformed a Mazda MX-5 into an amazing sports car with lines reminiscent of the Corvette Stingray.
As we know, the Mazda MX-5 has been a great success with enthusiasts around the world, and has remained the best-selling convertible for more than thirty years now. But in addition to seducing driving enthusiasts with its line and its very nice behavior, the little Japanese roadster also appeals to preparers of all kinds, who do not hesitate to tackle it to give it a new look or improved performance. rise. We remember in particular Hurtan, who had used a base of Miata to design an elegant car in the British style, which had not failed to make people talk about it. But the car in the spotlight today is a bit different.
The creation we are talking about is the work of the Japanese preparer Mitsuoka, specialized in the transformation of standard cars into original cars. We think in particular of the Newt, a Nissan Micra rebodied to look like a Jaguar MkII or even the Buddy, which is none other than a Toyota RAV4 also redesigned to have a more retro style. For its part, the Mazda MX-5 has been transformed into a Rock Star, a model with a design strongly inspired by the Corvette Stingray from 1969. If connoisseurs will recognize the lines of the Mazda, the tuner has radically transformed the front to make it unique.
If the exterior has undergone many transformations, the mechanics have not been modified, the roadster therefore retaining its 1.5 liters atmospheric of 132 horsepower. If the car has been on the market for some time, the preparer has just created a unique model with a left-hand drive that can be won via a lottery.
