EVENT: Tokyo Auto Salon 2016 Part 2 – Mazda’s

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??P1160552 P1160553
