Mazda MX-5 GT Concept

Would you like to see a more powerful, sportier-looking, better-handling Mazda MX-5? Then sound off--Mazda wants to hear feedback on its MX-5 GT Concept it's showing at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year.

With 205 horsepower at the crank from its normally-aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder (a 33-horsepower upgrade from the production MX-5), an adjustable suspension, front splitter, a central dual tail pipe, rear diffuser, and rear spoiler, plus a sportier exhaust system, Recaro seats, and carbon fiber trim, the MX-5 GT Concept sounds like exactly what we've been waiting for.

The car will make its debut at the Festival of Speed on June 28, alongside the Takeri sedan and CX-5. Between stints on the show stand, however, the MX-5 GT Concept will take a run up Goodwood Hill to show it doesn't just look like its racing counterparts, but drives like them too.

Mazda claims the MX-5 GT is capable of 160 mph top speed and 0-60 mph in just three seconds--incredible figures for a 205-horsepower car, hinting that the MX-5 GT Concept is much, much lighter than you might expect.

So, does this sound like something you'd like to see reach production? If so, speak up. To see some of Mazda's most recent MX-5 special editions, concepts, and other news, check here.
