Mazda’s entry for the 2010 LA Design Challenge is the MX-0 (Zero) Concept, a two-seater futuristic sportscar focused on extreme weight savings, achieved through the use of new materials and fewer integrated parts.


Conceived by Mazda Design Americas as a virtual successor of the MX-5 Miata, the MX-0 is a futuristic evolution of the roadster which brings to the extremes the “lightweight” design approach.
