It was going to happen sooner or later, right? Welcome to the very first onikyan-style ND Mazda Roadster that Japan has created for us all to see, love, loathe or lust after.
It took me a while to actually find this car as it was parked up in the center of what was a huge turn out for StanceNation at its very first Odaiba show.
I must have walked passed it a few times, but I probably didn’t see for the simple reason that it’s so damn low! Built by T-Demand in Sakai City, Fukui, the car sits on the shop’s own Pro Damper coilovers and also runs T-Demand Pro Arms.The 15-inch RAYS Volk Racing TE37Vs are a very well chosen wheel for this sort of look, combining that timeless 6-spoke design with a deep dish.
The new-gen Roadster is a great looking car as it comes from the Mazda factory, so aside from the number plate being offset at the front, there were no other noticeable aesthetic additions.
A stance like this on a car designed for driving pleasure might warrant some detestation, but I wasn’t going to pass up sharing this with you guys.
I made sure to drop a Speedhunters Hunted sticker in the ND’s passenger seat, so hopefully the guys that built it can check back here and maybe answer some of your questions. Let’s discuss!
