Early this morning, on my way to see the Easter parade at 5th Avenue, there was a lot of things running on my mind. Especially since the trains were running local, I had a lot of time to cerebrate. One of them was deciding whether to forgo the Easter parade for the Auto Show. Needless to say, I opted for the Auto Show, and it was great!
Here’s a quick clip of what this car is all about. Lifted from Wikipedia.
The Mazda Furai is a concept car revealed on 27 December, 2007 and manufactured by Mazda. A teaser image of the vehicle was released on 11 December, 2007. The Furai officially debuts at the 2008 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
The Furai, meaning Sound of the wind, is based on the Courage Compétition C65 Le Mans Prototype that Mazda last used to compete in the American Le Mans Series, two seasons previously and is designed to use E100 ethanol fuel. The car bears the #55 number that of its 1991 24 Hours of Le Mans winning ancestor, the 787B.
