A Genre-Redefining Marque
The Mazda Roadster (known as the MX-5 outside of Japan) has been a genre-redefining car since the release of the first generation in 1989. Fast forward to 2015 and the world was once again wowed by the latest release, the 4th Generation - a lightweight roadster embodying the Japanese company's design concept of "kodo": soul of motion. It features a svelte silhouette combined with punchy 1.5-liter engine (Japan spec) and extensive use of aluminum and ultra-high tensile strength plate; safety is a top priority with a full range of modern systems. Now, this masterpiece appears in beautifully detailed 1/24 scale.
