Default Mazda Ryuga

Another concept from mazda launching at detroit next month (pic link, sketch):

Mazda's sending its latest concept to NAIAS, this one named Ryuga. The gullwinged sports car is meant to build on Mazda's recently introduced "flow" design language first seen on the Nagare in LA. Not coincidentally, Ryuga is Japanese for "gracious flow." "Ryuga is Zoom-Zoom defined," said Laurens van den Acker, Mazda's global design director in a Mazda press release. "It combines vibrance, confidence, fun and youth all in one ingenious package."

The Ryuga is scheduled for introduction on the morning of January 8, the second day of the show's media preview.

Mazda also says it will bring along the 2008 Tribute HEV hybrid. Combining gas and electric motors, the SUV produces 155hp, but still qualifies as a Super Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle and Advanced Technology Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle in California.

With the introduction of the Kabura earlier this year, the Nagare in L.A. and now the Ryuga in a few weeks, we understand that Mazda is in the process of revealing a production vehicle mimicking the design cues used in these concepts. Hopefully Mazda will give us something we can drive by this time next year.

Swoopy show cars are a dime a dozen. How about advancing styling now? Futurethink is all well and fine, but a more tangible link to the present would be appreciated.

First the Senku, then the Kabura, Nagare and now the Ryuga. They all look alike and even though the Ryuga is just near-perfection, I want to see Mazda approach their concepts in a different way.

When Nagare was released, Mazda stated that their three concepts this year will all be an evolution of each other, each one hinting closer to a model destined for production.

Quote »
Franz von Holzhausen: "It's important to start with the vision first: Nagare is sculpture on wheels, our vision of what Mazda automobiles could look like in 2020. The concept we'll present in Detroit is practical enough to produce in the next decade, while the model under development for Geneva will embody design ideas we expect to implement in the very near future."

I believe they did the same thing with the RX-8 (RX-01, Rx-Evolv then RX-8)

I was disappointed in the Nagare but one thing I knew was that it would look better in red. The Ryuga thus remedies the problems of the Nagare in more ways than one; from what we can see it looks both more sporty/muscular, and at the same time a little less oddball. It looks like yet another stunning Mazda concept, and I'm holding my breath in anticipation.
