Production Begins for Intense Mazda MX-5 Miata RS Model

Mazda3 hot hatch to be released under new Mazda Spirit Racing label.

Mazda created quite a stir at the 2024 Tokyo Auto Salon as it dropped subtle hints about the revival of their rotary sports car. Along with this exciting news, the company also showcased two impressive concept cars under the Mazda Spirit Racing brand. Although the event is filled with countless custom vehicles – much like Japan’s own SEMA – there’s an intriguing twist to the tale.

The Mazda Spirit Racing RS and Spirit Racing 3 are set to be manufactured. The first model is inspired by the locally sold Roadster, also known as the MX-5 Miata, while the second is based on the Mazda3 hatchback. While complete specifications have yet to be revealed, these exciting additions are currently in progress and will be available under the Mazda Spirit Racing label.

The main goal is to introduce track-oriented vehicles featuring improved suspension and aerodynamics, drawing from the knowledge gained in the Super Taikyu Series. Along with this, both the Miata and 3 have received some minor updates to their interior design, but there is no mention of any potential increase in power for either model. Shigeki Saito, the MX-5 Program Manager, had previously revealed that “very cool special editions” are in development for the beloved roadster, although this does not necessarily indicate that more powerful engines will be included.

In the meanwhile, these two concepts both display the emblem of Mazda Spirit Racing and run on Rays wheels equipped with Bridgestone Potenza tires. Utilizing the newly launched ND3 model as its base, the Miata boasts a duo of Recaro bucket seats complete with a racing harness, as well as an Alcantara-covered steering wheel complete with a striking red marking at the 12 o’clock position. Additionally, it showcases a sleek body kit adorned with decals, along with a larger exhaust tip (instead of two smaller ones), high-performance Brembo brakes, and darkened badges.

The Mazda3 boasts a uniquely large front splitter, expanded side skirts, and a carbon fiber rear spoiler. It also features larger exhaust tips and darker badges, along with Brembo brakes and an apparent stiffer suspension indicated by its lowered ride height. Inside, the cabin is enhanced by Recaro seats that hug the body, accented with red stitching and Alcantara detailing.

It seems that Mazda Spirit Racing is transforming into a subtle rebirth of Mazdaspeed. Our hopes are high that the Iconic SP concept’s preview of a rotary sports car will claim the top spot in the lineup.
