The most famous roadster in the world will attend the largest tuning event on the planet tomorrow in the form of two concepts.

First, the Mazda MX-5 Spyder will hit the SEMA Show capturing the character of a vintage roadster and translating it into a modern-day design, including bespoke leather interior details that were painstakingly crafted, and featuring a new Mercury Silver concept paint colour.

Right next to it will be the Mazda MX-5 Speester, an homage to minimalist roadsters of the 1950s. It eschew a traditional windshield for a lighter deflector.

Both models come with a host of conceptual and aftermarket pieces and fabrication from partners including Haartz Corporation, Racing Beat, Franks Fab Shop, and many more. They are lighter than the stock 2016 Mazda MX-5, ensuring higher performance. No word about engine modifications, though.
