The Mazda TAKERI Concept Saloon makes my head spin like socks in a washing machine.
The Mazda TAKERI Concept Saloon makes my head spin like socks in a washing machine. Could this really be a production-ready car in the near future? Could we possibly be that lucky? If so, then praise be. It would mean 'goodbye' to drearily styled Japanese mile-munchers – and 'hello' to what could be the most stunning car ever to grace the sector. Have you seen its sweeping bonnet lines? Look at the way they dance along the front doors too. And check-out the bulging rear quarters and the curvaceous roof. If the TAKERI makes it to production – and has super-sharp handling like today's Mazda6 – motorists will happily sell their kidneys to afford one. I will be first in the cue at the hospital.The Mazda TAKERI Concept Saloon has various fuel saving systems to complement its looks. These include regenerative braking technology. The system's purpose is to convert kinetic energy - produced during braking - to electricity. This is stored in capacitors then used to power electrical systems such as the radio. This reduces load on the engine and saves fuel. The TAKERI also has lightweight construction, a stop/start system, and super- slippery aerodynamics to minimise fuel consumption. It might be witchcraft, but with looks like that who cares? The new Mazda TAKERI can be seen at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show.
