Mazda pulled out a jaw-dropper this week at the New York Auto Show, revealing their new MX-5 RF. The new addition to the family is not only a reveal of the long-awaited hardtop with a look similar to that of the sporty Nissan 370Z coupe, but it comes fitted with a folding mechanism you would expect to see on the BMW 4 Series. It's a fully automated system that doesn't sacrifice any more of the already-limited trunk space, able to fold back at speeds below 10mph with just the push of a button. The Mazda MX-5 RF will be releasing globally with a 1.5-liter engine with an optional 6-speed automatic transmission.
