[NAIAS 2008] Mazda Furai Concept

Mazda Furai Concept (Image property of OhGizmo!)
By Andrew Liszewski

A lot of times when you look at a concept vehicle you have to wonder what the designers were thinking. This is not one of those times. The Mazda Furai (which means ‘sound of the wind’ in Japanese) is a result of the company’s Nagare design language which apparently describes the flow of water, air, people or things moving in one direction. And when you look at the car, it’s impressive how the design cues get the idea of ‘flow’ across, even when it’s not moving.

Under the hood (in a manner of speaking) you’ll find a 450 hp three-rotor rotary engine that actually runs on 100% ethanol produced in partnership with British Petroleum. (BP) If you plan on visiting the show when it’s open to the public next week you might want to stop by the Mazda exhibit early, as this one will surely attract a big crowd.

More pics are available after the jump.
