Mazda Ibuki Concept 

  • 2003
 
With Mazda Ibuki, our primary theme was to minimize the car’s yaw inertia moment, and to take Mazda’s own sports car values to the absolute extreme.

The overall shape is clean and simple, reminiscent of the original Mazda MX-5 Miata, with a wide and stable stance, pronounced fenders and the elegant use of oval shapes throughout the design.

Mazda Ibuki Concept

Thanks to the super front-midship layout, yaw inertia moment has been greatly reduced, enhancing further the level of pure, fun drivability-oneness between car and driver-that has been central to the Roadster's ongoing success.
Compared with the layout in the current Mazda Roadster/MX-5, the engine is positioned approximately 400mm further to the rear, while the air conditioner unit is located behind the seats.

This decrease in the yaw inertia moment can be felt in the natural and linear handling, and superior control at the limit of tire grip.

The engine is positioned almost 15 inches farther back in the chassis, placing all the heavy running gear between the axles for an ideal weight distribution and a reduced polar moment of inertia (that helps it turn more easily).
