Alfa Romeo Roadster to be Produced by Mazda

One of last week’s highlights, that is excluding the North American International Auto Show, was the announcement that Mazda would be producing the Alfa Romeo Roadster for Fiat.

The open-top two-seater sports car for Fiats Alfa Romeo brand will be produced at Mazda’s plant in Hiroshima, Japan, starting from 2015.

The new Alfa Romeo Roadster will be developed for the global market, and will be based on the architecture of the next generation Mazda MX-5. Not too bad considering the success of the Mazda MX-5 over the years.

The agreement foresees for both Mazda and Fiat to develop two differentiated, distinctly styled, and brand specific roadster featuring-rear wheel drive.

The Mazda MX-5 and the Alfa Romeo Roadster variants will each be powered by specific proprietary engines unique to each brand.
