Japan:Mazda releases 'Roadster Coupe'


Mazda Motor Corp. has issued the following press release:

Mazda Motor Corporation has released two-seat "Roadster Coupe." The much-anticipated sports coupe is available by customer order from Mazda and Mazda Anfini dealerships across Japan.

The Roadster Coupe is a two-seat sports coupe based on Mazda's popular Roadster. With its responsive handling and exhilarating performance, the Roadster truly embodies Mazda's brand personality. The Roadster Coupe further builds on the fun to drive characteristics of the original Roadster and is designed to appeal to customers who value impressive styling and driving performance. Production of this vehicle was achieved with technologies developed by Mazda Engineering and Technology Co. Ltd. The 100% Mazda-owned subsidiary specializes in technologies for the development of limited production models.

Major Features
- Refined Coupe Style
The stylish Roadster Coupe further advances on the design of its base model the Roadster. Hand modeling and the latest CAD technology were employed in the process to create a semi-classic feel that combines sporty and dynamic features with functional styling. The Roadster Coupe is the only domestically produced rear drive coupe with an engine size less than two liters.

- High rigidity body structure
During development of the vehicle's closed body, engineers revised the body structure in order to enhance body rigidity. This was achieved with a total weight increase of only ten kilograms. These improvements further advance on the fun to drive qualities of the original Roadster.

Major Exclusive Equipment
[Common Equipment]
Original coupe body rear quarter window and rear window (with defroster).
[Type A Exclusive Equipment]
Front grill, front fog lamps, front bumper face/fender arch molding/rear spoiler (made of fiberglass-reinforced plastic), front under spoiler/side skirt/rear under skirt (made of carbon fiberglass-reinforced plastic), headlamp bezels, and rear combination lamp bezels.
[Type E Exclusive Equipment]
Front grill, front fog lamps, front bumper face (fiberglass-reinforced plastic), and rear combination lamp bezels.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
