These detail images were shot at a special Mazda show for members of the press in the summer of 2005. The show also included displays of other Mazda products, but focused on the MX-5 (Miata).
Several cutaway cars, chassis, and engines were available for photography.
Take special note of all the weight-savings measures designed into this car. Mazda went to extraordinary lengths to keep the weight down, while increasing strength and keeping costs in line. This is even more amazing when you consider that the MX-5 doesn’t share chassis parts with any other product.
