Mazda wows with Taiki

Mazda's latest aerodynamic concept car has been unveiled and, blimey, it’s amazing.

The Taiki, shown in Yokohama, Japan ahead of the Tokyo Motor Show, it’s another one of Mazda’s concepts designed around some concept called "flow" which doesn’t mean much but sounds kinda clever. Taiki in Japanese means atmosphere, with the design inspired by the flowing robes of the legendary celestial maiden Hagoromo. Apparently.

The futuristic two-seater sports coupe features a next-generation rotary engine, in a front-engine, rear-wheel drive format. Mazda also launched it's latest hydrogen-powered car, the Premacy Hydrogen RE hybrid, which produces only water in exhaust.

Both vehicles are aimed at improving Mazda's environmental credentials, without sacrificing performance.
