So Let’s start the TAS ’16 Coverage with Mazda. In comparison to Honda, Toyota or Even Nissan, Mazda is a quite small Automaker in Japan. But it definitly ruled the Show this year at TAS. First of all they had the most Enthusiast-minded cars at their booth. Compared to others which had boring concept car of future transportation, Mazda had the real deal Sportscars there. LM55 Vision GT Real-life anyone?
Seriously, How can you not love this car??
Mazda also brought their latest hint on the roatry-future. Their RX-Vision…
But the real star of the Show was the lately released MX-5 Roadstar ND. Here by Damd:
Or Garage Vary:
They even had this very cool NC Roadster Bobby Car 🙂
The Greddy / Rocket-Bunny took home the “Best of Show” Award…
I Personally liked the simpler Blitz version:
But there were countless more, like Esqueleto:
Or Acre Brakes:
Then of Course there was RE-Amemiya. They had this Nice RX-7 at their booth:
And their latest reinterpretation of the FD RX-7:
But my personal Star of the show was this one. The Mazda Chantez is a 70ties City Car which has been fully restored, Modified to look like what reminds me of a Modern Berg-cup Racer and Powered by a NA 13B Rotary Engine!! Great Stuff 🙂
But Also the other Mazda’s in their lineup was well represented. The New CX-3 and Demio were everywere…
And last (and least) there was this. A really strange interpretion of the FD RX-7 and the RX-8…Tomorrow let’s look at Honda’s or Classics. Not sure yet 🙂
