After last month’s teaser, Mazda has introduced the MX-5 Spyder and MX-5 Speedster concepts at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas.

The main idea behind these two concepts is to highlight the Miata’s lightweight construction through additional derivatives of the model such as a Spyder and a Speedster which both draw their inspiration from vintage roadsters.

The Spyder weighs as little as 1,043 kg (2,299 lbs) and wears a Mercury Silver body combined with a bikini top and a carbon fiber aerodynamic kit. It sits on 17-inch ADVAN Racing RS II wheels wrapped around in Yokohama tires and has received Brembo four-piston front calipers with vented rotors along with adjustable coilovers while on the inside it gets a Spinneybeck PRIMA natural full-grain leather upholstery.

As for the Speedster, this one is even lighter as it tips the scales at 943 kg (2,078 lbs) possible by removing the conventional windscreen and replacing it with a deflector which according to Mazda enhances the ”old school wind-in-the-hair sports car experience.” More weight was shaved off by installing carbon fiber doors and seats along with a 16-inch set of RAYS 57 Extreme Gram Lights wheels with Kumho Ecsta tires. Painted in Blue Ether with a black Alcantara upholstery, the MX-5 Speedster concept sits 30mm lower than the regular Miata thanks to the K&W adjustable coilover suspension and just like the Spyder it has Brembo four-piston front calipers with vented rotors.

The two concepts will be on display at SEMA until Friday.
