2009 Mazda MX-5 Superlight Concept

The Mazda MX-5 has become one of the best selling convertibles of all time thanks to its simple, unchanging formula of low weight and fun dynamics - a formula that has served it well for the two decades that it has been in production now.

To celebrate the carís 20th anniversary, however, Mazda is changing up this formula with a special speedster-style concept dubbed the MX-5 Superlight. The concept, which is set to be revealed at next monthís Frankfurt Motor Show, reveals a strange looking MX-5 with the front windscreen dispensed with and futuristic-looking, streamlined roll bars at the rear.
