Mazda has revealed the MX-5 RF (retractable fastback) on the eve of the New York Motor Show. This latest version of the iconic convertible sports car features fastback styling with a roofline that slopes down to the rear. The MX-5 RF’s rear roof and retractable back window deliver a distinctive new convertible look.
The electrically powered roof can be operated at speeds of up to 10kmph. The roof itself stows away compactly and offers the same boot space as the soft-top model. Also, like the soft-top, the new version will be available in Europe with a choice of two revvy petrol engines – a 1.5 and a 2-litre, mated either to 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed automatic.
Now although Mazda hasn’t revealed how much this RF version weighs, we will get to know that and the rest of the details closer to the car’s launch.
