Mazda MX-5

The world’s best selling roadster ever is very popular with tuners, and its brand-new iteration is no exception.

The fourth generation of the Mazda MX-5 has received Tra-Kyoto’s not-so-subtle (to say the least) treatment.

Sporting basically the same visual elements that put the small tuning shop on the world map, the ND MX-5 comes with widened fenders, front and rear bumper lips, side skirts, roll bar, humongous time-attack rear spoiler and deep-dish wheels to match.

As a true TRA-Kyoto street-racer, the project couldn’t miss the JDM tow hook and the symbolic lightening holes on the front fenders. Discreet, it is not, but its makers were always intending to make it look OTT and transform the fun, yet sensible, roadster into something of a track weapon.

No specs have been released yet, so we have no idea whatsoever about what’s going on under the hood. On the other hand, if it’s meant to be more than a looker, we expect power to have increased substantially so as to light those fat rear tires, something the stock engines definitely won’t do.
