As we claimed back in April, Mazda is marking its a centesimal anniversary in 2020 with the output of minimal-version variations of 7 of its models. These editions of the CX-3, CX-thirty, CX-5, CX-9, Mazda2 (Japan), Mazda3 and Mazda6 models will feature unique white exteriors with burgundy interiors, in homage to the R360 Coupe created in 1960.

Why the R360? Mainly because it was the to start with real passenger car or truck created by the firm, which had been in existence given that 1920. Originally the Hiroshima-based firm created cork, feel it or not, but Mazda founder Jujiro Matsuda formulated a vision of making a passenger automobile obtainable to all, one that would permit people today additional liberty to go where they needed and desired to go. At this time was born Mazda’s need to “under no circumstances-quit challenging”.

The R360 coupe introduced to the entire world in 1960 highlighted a four-cylinder engine with automatic transmission, with its exclusive form fashioned largely to minimize the car’s fat. To that stop, the product produced large use of mild alloy components for the powertrain, in excess of which went a monocoque system.
