Mazda has launched a new marketing video that promotes their MX-5 Miata convertible.
In recent days, the video has gone viral and exploded all around the internet.
The premise of the video, is that Mazda’s MX-5 Miata convertible is the fastest convertible in the world – an impressive feat if you consider that the video features the MX-5 Miata competing in a drag race against world renowned, prestigious convertibles: The Lamborghini Gallardo, Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, a Ford Mustang V6 and a Porsche 911 Carrera.
There is a little twist to this tale, however – and that makes this a great marketing video.
Check out the video below to find out exactly how the Mazda MX-5 Miata beats it’s stiff competition:

The Porsche 911 made it’s debut 50 years ago at the 1963 Frankfurt Auto show under the 901 name. The 901 was a prototype sports car designed by the grandson of Porsche’s founder, to act as a replacement for the automaker’s 356 model.
This famous sports car was eventually renamed the 911 and went on to produce seven separate generations – all of which are still undeniably linked by design and spirit to the very first, original 901 prototype. (more…)
Eight months ago, a client came into Studio Vilner and brought along his first generation Bentley Continental GT. Vilner’s client’s Bentley had a classic, Racing Green exterior colour and the standard production interior in a Saffron colour with brown, wooden accents.
Their client wanted to achieve a distinct individualization for his automobile: this meant that his favourite vehicle should express his own style of luxury, comfort and individuality, while still respecting the beautiful, classic design of the Continental GT.
Peugeot is planning to show off their latest concept car, the Onyx, at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England this July.
The Onyx was first unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in September of 2012, but it’s appearance at the Goodwood festival will be it’s very first public demonstration.
The Onyx is a diesel-hybrid car, with a carbon fibre shell and wings and doors that are made from pure copper. The copper wings and doors attribute to the futuristic look of this concept car.
The idea is that the copper is polished to a mirror finish and then left unprotected. This means that the copper will change in colour as it begins to oxidize.
Vilner Studios has worked its skill on the interior of a Mercedes Benz SL model resulting in a car more exceptional then before.
Vilner reveals that this is one of their bravest projects having worked with five different, carefully chosen materials that come together in a seamless and cohesive design.
Vilner used Nappa leather with an antique effect, crocodile leather and brown Alcantara.
All wooden applications, some of the plastic elements and the gearshift lever have been hand-painted to provide a patinated steel appearance.
