Mazda MX-5 Levanto

Mazda MX-5 Levanto
The MX-5 Levanto was a one-off design concept created by Garage Italia Customs in collaboration with Mazda. The inspiration came from the 1966 Bruce Brown movie "The Endless Summer". The film follows the story of two surfers who travel the world chasing the summer season, effectively living an endless summer.

The film has similar themes and ideas to those of the MX-5, since the beginning the car has always been about a sense of fun and freedom. The link is further emphasised with the car's Levanto name. The Italian seaside town is famous for its clear waters and surfing history.

The eye-catching paintwork represents an endless sunset of bright orange seamlessly fading into an indigo blue hue all around the waistline of the car. The interior gets a unique full re-trim in Japanese denim with orange stitching and blue Alcantara contrast details. The trim work here is really impressive, even the gearknob has been covered in denim.

Completing the look are a set of MX-5 logo carpets and the 17" diamond finished, appropriately named, "Design 66" wheels from Mazda's accessory catalogue.
