Datasystem's Roadster ND Demo Car

The Datasystem Roadster demo car features some unique aero and electronic parts that set it apart from others. The car's exterior is finished in Mazda's light grey Ceramic paint and features the R-Spec half front spoiler. This part attaches to the standard MX-5 front bumper and gives the car a much more aggressive appearance thanks to large vent cut-outs and a lower lip spoiler.

To complement the enhanced front end, a smart rear spoiler is available with an integrated 3rd brakelight. This wing is designed to follow the curve of the bootlid and looks quite neat. It is also available with a small rear facing camera that can be used as a parking aid.

The standard Mazda wheels have been swapped for a set of 18" Work Emotion D9R in 7.5J ET38 fitment. This 9-spoke design wheel is finished in gloss white and fitted with contrasting blue wheel nuts. New wheels means new tyres and here Datasystem have fitted Yokohama S-Drive AS01 in size 215/35/18. Braking performance is upgraded thanks to Project-μ B-Spec brake pads, and handling improvements are courtesy of Tein Flex-Z suspension lowering the car 40mm front and 35mm rear.

The door mirrors and windscreen surround are fitted with carbon trim from Hasepro. The mirrors also feature handy side view cameras, presumably to help avoid kerbing those wheels. Inside we find a pair of Bride Stradia II Reims sports seats with faux suede trim and blue contrast stitching.

The demo car's interior is kitted out with a full set of Datasystem's Ultrasuede trim in blue. These trims are available in a variety of colours including red and yellow if you wanted. I prefer the grey colour as it complements with standard interior well and gives a similiar appearance to that of the factory Alcantara parts since they are essentially the same material.
