Roadster NC Kurenai Concept

The Kurenai (Japanese for Crimson) concept Roadster appeared alongside the M'Z Tune concept at the 2007 Tokyo Auto Salon as part of a 17 car range that Mazda were showing.  Featuring a unique interior and exterior, it seems it's purpose was purely to show off.  I think the exterior looks quite nice in the Radiant Ebony colour, but I just couldn't live with those wheels or that interior.  Some things should just remain a concept.  The official blurb said:
"The "exhilaration of the open-top" and the "practicality of a coupe" were the two fun aspects that were designed into the Roadster Power Retractable Hard Top. Chrome parts highlight the premium styling, while glass flakes blended into the purple body color accent the charming atmosphere. Inside, red Italian leather and Alcantara make up the mature color scheme. The KURENAI is a chic open-style customized model perfect for passionate people."
