Mazda’s booth at the 2018 Tokyo Auto Salon featured the all-new CX-8 as well as a couple of special edition Roadsters.
One of these special editions was the Mazda Roadster Red Top. The vehicle on display was elegantly decorated with snowflake white pearl mica body color and a dark cherry red top. Both the cabin and exterior featured LED lighting (manufacturer’s option). The Red Top provides an option for those who feel that the Roadster’s black top offers too much sportiness. Mazda will be accepting orders for the Red Top until the end of March.
The other special edition on display was the Roadster RF Custom Style 2018. What stands out for this model are its wheels and seating. The wheels are a set of RAYS featured on the Global MX-5 Cup racer. In the cabin are Recaro seats, which have been incorporated on the Roadster from its first-generation model. Compared with the seats featured on the Roadster RS, they wrap firmly around the body for improved stability. Visitors at the show were able to try out and experience the comfort of these Recaro seats first hand.
