Mazda Launches Limited Edition Mazda Roadster Turbo

Tokyo, Japan, Dec. 24, 2003 – (JCN Newswire) – Mazda Motor Corporation has added a new turbocharged engine model to its Mazda Roadster, the world’s best-selling lightweight sports car. The limited edition Mazda Roadster Turbo goes on sale from the beginning of February at Mazda Anfini and Mazda dealerships throughout Japan.

The new Roadster Turbo not only delivers more power, but also provides high torque from a low-speed range to ensure a linear response to acceleration, based on the concept of oneness between car and driver. Mazda has employed a turbocharged engine with an intercooler and tuned the chassis, achieving a high level of integrated balance in its powertrain under the concept.

The specially-tuned low-down suspension with Bilstein dampers and large diameter 17-inch tires provide strong support for the wide range flat torque and powerful acceleration produced by the turbo engine. Further, exclusive equipment including newly designed aero parts and metal tone interior parts further emphasize the car’s sports spirit. The new Roadster Turbo achieves a superb overall vehicle balance for enhanced driving pleasure creating a feeling of oneness between car and driver.

The new model offers a choice of four different interior packages and four body colors to meet the diverse needs of customers.

The new Roadster Turbo is marketed through regular dealer networks as well as via the Internet at Web Tune Factory.

Sales volume for this model is limited to 350 units.
