Default 2007 Mazda MX-5 CC

Quote »
Mazda is tipped to unveil a folding tin-top version of its brilliant new MX-5 at this summer's British Motor Show in London.

This computer-generated image gives an idea of what the car could look like, but you'll have to wait until July for official shots of the new Mazda.

There's no more official information on the secret Mazda just yet, but we'd expect it to go on sale later this year with a price tag of around 17.000GBP to 17.500GBP - about 1.500GBP to 2.000GBP more than the soft-top.

This summer's event should be the best British Motor Show in decades, because along with the Mazda it will feature world debuts of the next-generation Land Rover Freelander and Vauxhall Corsa.

I wont have a problem with this as long as they keep a soft-top a light option..you can be sure a retractable hardtop will ruin this cars weight, distribution & handling

Don't mess with the Miata!!! If Mazda does a CC, I'd like to seat a true 2-seat rotary... a two-door hardtop convertible RX-8. Would that not be gorgeous!?!

Hmm... very cool addition if they offer it as an option, not instead of the good ol rag top with a separate cabin...


Geary did a chop of this car for Sydney Morning Herald a few months back. When he gets back in a few days, he might post it...

If they do that to the MX-5, I'll sell my soul to have one. Very SLK, but damn it's gorgeous!

With the size of new gen Miata's trunk still being horrendously small, going CC basically use up that meager trunk space. Hmm...

I wish Mazda would upset the "balance" (aka insufficiently torquey 4 cylinder) and throw in a V6 along with the foldable hardtop.

Okay now that I could deal with.

I agree with everyone. Keep the soft top option, please. I think a V6 will just be nose heavy, so perhaps a rotary engine would be the way to go.

Honestly, though, Mazda might just go straight for the CC since it's the only way to get most small cabrios in Europe - 206, 307, Micra, blah blah blah. And it's even becoming that way in the US - SLK, SL, SC430, Volvo S40, Volkswagen Eos, Pontiac G6, next Mustang...

Would be nice ey? But to be honest it doesn't really need it, and the V6 would make the price rise and become an S2000 competitor and then the MX5 would stop making sense as an affordable fun car to drive.

A Miata with a rotary? It's so crazy it just might WORK~!
