2009 Frankfurt: Along came a (Mazda) spyder
Heralding Mazda’s long-term strategy that performance gains (while not at the expense of fuel consumption) will come from lighter cars, the Superlight is the second lightweight concept we’ve seen from Mazda recently.
In this one, the engine is stock (1.8-litre, 126 hp four,) But a Mazdaspeed intake and exhaust, combined with the reduced-to 2,194-pound curb weight from a stripped-out interior, drops the 0-96 km/h run down to 8.9 seconds.
Will a Superlight ever be sold to the public? Probably not in its present form.
But do you wish it would?
