Mazda has dropped a huge gallery of pics (find them after the jump) of the upcoming MX-5 (“Miata” for those of you living in the past) “Superlight” concept, a roof-and-windshield-less wonder reminiscent of the recent Veritas RS III and Lotus 2-Eleven. As with most of the other eyecandy that’s dropped in the next few days, it’ll be at Frankfurt next week. With the stock version of the most recent MX-5 is a bit porkier than past models, the severe diet that this superlight has been given, no matter how impractical to live with, is probably a blast to drive. That being said, the numbers are not all that impressive, as the engine is nearly unmodified and the tiny car sashays to 60 MPH in a leisurely 8.9 seconds. All we have to say is, get Mazdaspeed to turbocharge this motor within an inch of its life and we’ll perk up like we just licked a light socket. Click through for the huge gallery of high-res images.
