The Mazda RX-Vision is a stunning rotary-powered sports car concept. It came as no surprise that it captured the Most Beautiful Concept Car of the Year award at the 31st Festival Automobile International.
The RX-Vision was nominated this year alongside the Bentley Exp10 Speed 6, Peugeot Fractal, and Porsche Mission E. Mazda’s concept shared the podium with the latter. Unveiled at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show in November, the RX-Vision exemplifies Mazda’s challenger spirit. The company’s latest concept car is a truly striking rendition of its KODO – Soul of Motion design philosophy.
The smooth-flowing proportions scream performance while paying tribute to Mazda’s rich heritage of front engine, rear-wheel drive sports cars. Indeed, the rotary powertrain’s compactness makes characteristics like the low bonnet possible. Fans of the brand are certainly eager to see this creation go into production.
The Festival Automobile International’s Concept Car Award goes to the vehicle that best embodies pure design creativity and emerging trends. It is one of four grand prizes at the annual event, with the winners chosen by a jury of experts and enthusiasts from the world of motorsports, architecture, fashion, and design.
