MAZDA MX 5S
Mazda has taken the wraps off two new Miata MX-5 models at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Both models were designed with track-day performance in mind.
The Mazda MX-5 Super20 looks far more sinister than its production counterpart, thanks to wider wheel flares, 16-inch wheels with performance rubber and gray, black and orange paint scheme. The color pattern continues to the car’s interior, which has also been designed with racing in mind.
Underhood the MX-5 Super20 features a supercharged Cosworth engine, although no performance figures were released.
The Mazda MX-5 Cup is a track only car designed for the racing series bearing the name. The MX-5 Cup tips the scales at just under 2,600 pounds, with a 195 horsepower four-cylinder providing motivation. To conform to racing rules, the MX-5 is essentially stock, save for a cold air intake, upgraded suspension and, most notably, a full roll cage.
KIA SPORTAGE CUSTOM TOUCHES
Kia and Antenna Magazine teamed up at the annual SEMA aftermarket show in Las Vegas to unveil a pair of customized Sportage crossovers designed to stylishly fulfill the needs of urban and suburban drivers.
Covered in a glossy blue metallic paint shade, the Sportage Casual Business concept is designed to blend “style and technology to go from day to night, business to casual, staying connected at all points in between”.
An Autonet wireless communication system offers on-the-go connectivity, while an integrated closet system features more clothing storage space than some urban apartments. Inside, every surface was wrapped in tan saddle leather with diamond stitching and a Memphis audio system cranks out tunes.
Designed as the ultimate weekend companion, the Antenna Serious Fun Sportage is the antithesis of the Casual Business. The Serious Fun delivers on its nameplate, offering fun-loving drivers a slide out rear barbecue, a locker for sporting goods, a Mac Mini computer and a flip-down LCD screen for live TV or streaming videos from Netflix and iTunes.
