In a press event streamed across the globe, Mazda pulled the wraps off it’s MX-5 RF ahead of the New York International Auto Show. The stunning new “fastback” variant of the already acclaimed MX5 “Miata” features a retractable roof that stows in seconds and offers about the same trunk space as the current soft top. When “top down”, the MX5 looks a lot like a fastback targa top.
Mazda also unveiled a new premium color available on the new model – “Machine Gray”.
The color features a mass production high quality finish similar to the hand painted finishes on show cars. Three coats are applied – a color, a special reflective aluminum flake, and a clear coat. The paint will be available on the MX-5 RF and will also appear on the new CX-9 crossover due this spring.
