Sneek Peek- Mazda's New Sport Coupe - (RX9 or 2012 Mazda6?) www.msmazda.com
Mazda Shinari Concept debuts new face of the brand in style!
Looking at the exterior, it's easy to tell that the Shinari shares little
in common with Mazda's recent designs, although like almost every sedan
built today, it has similarities to vehicles from other brands. It's almost
as if the Aston Martin Rapide and a Mazda RX-8 cued up some Barry White,
enjoyed a romantic evening and the Shinari came out nine months later.
That's obviously a compliment, as the Rapide is a stunningly beautiful car
and the RX-8 -- even this far into its lifecycle -- is still a looker.
However, the Shinari has a much more complicated design, with more
intersecting lines and a surface area that's constantly moving and changing
depending on the lighting.
While the exterior is certainly a departure from previous designs, the
interior is perhaps the most surprising aspect of the Shinari. Easily the
most attractive and stylish interior we've seen in a Mazda (concept or
not), it's swathed in authentic aluminum trim, leather-covered surfaces and
double stitching at nearly every turn and twist. We're again drawn to the
Aston Martin Rapide comparison, especially with the design of the deep rear
bucket seats. The gauges, modeled after popular watch designs, up the class
quotient and the massive glass roof helps make the interior feel open and
But more than the tech and the attention to detail, it's the Shinari's
overall cohesion that impresses the most. Unlike other pie-in-the-sky
concepts, the Sinari is a smart, well executed styling exercise that should
be a solid design platform for future models. The muscular lines should
translate well into a production car, and customers will always appreciate
a more sophisticated interior.
We sure like the sound of a Mazda RX-9!

more grip with some Direzza Z1s (2 seconds faster around Tsukuba), Step 2: coilovers
(not a huge improvement as now the car is too grippy but not enough power),

quick for a car with no power. faster than a stock DC5R or FD2R.
