chases the sun

Chasing the taste of freedom, the new MX-5 takes us to a never-ending summer.

Honoring both brands’ reverence for the aspirational power of culture in motion, Mazda and Garage Italia combine forces to create a one-off custom model and video tribute to the new MX-5 spider. Drawing parallels between the cult status of this fourth generation 4-wheel icon and a legendary film from ’66, the creative concept behind the Garage Italia custom car chases the sun down the coast-road to Levanto, searching for its own "Endless Summer”. Reflecting the colors of long summer sunsets, both the hand-painted bodywork and interior panels feature a bright orange tone that fades into indigo, completed by a full dashboard trim and door panels in Japanese denim, washable nautical blue Alcantara seats with orange contrast stitching, and glinting 17″ Diamond Cut wheel rims in the original Mazda Design 66.
