Mazda’s Iconic SP Concept: A Mystery Between MX-5 and RX Revival
Chief Designer Hints at Concept's Versatility and Rotary-Electric Power
Since Mazda unveiled its captivating Iconic SP concept at the Japan Mobility Show, enthusiasts have been left wondering about its place in Mazda’s sports car lineup. Is it related to the beloved MX-5, or could it potentially signify a revival of the iconic RX series? The Iconic SP raises intriguing questions with its distinctive dimensions and layout.
The Iconic SP boasts substantial dimensions, measuring 164.6 inches in length and 82.8 inches in width. This size places it considerably larger than the nimble Miata, but still shorter than the RX-8, although notably wider. Complicating matters is the two-seat layout, which aligns more with the MX-5, as opposed to the RX-8, which featured rear seats.
