Rocket Bunny 4th-Gen. MX-5 Revealed

TRA Kyoto’s latest is for Mazda’s lovable roadster and headed to the 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon.

Jan 4, 2016

If you happen to be keeping track, we think this is probably the fourth version of the now nearly ubiquitous Rocket Bunny wide-body aero kit by TRA Kyoto. Pictures of the body setup on a fourth generation Mazda MX-5 (ND chassis) roadster appeared on Facebook Christmas Eve, and since then we’ve seen one other rendering posted to MiataGang’s Instagram account with the car in kit and rocking a custom livery.

The Rocket Bunny kit, in all of its versions, includes a front lip, rear diffuser, side skirts, and front and rear fenders, and from there the different iterations feature either a rear GT wing or duck-tail spoiler (Version 2 also comes with a front bumper; official US distributor Greddy has the complete kit specs on its website). In Boss form, the conversion adds a different front bumper, hood, front grill, headlights and headlight mounts – turning your run-of-the-mill S14 into a '70s-era Plymouth Barracuda/Dodge Challenger clone.

This newest iteration takes the LED holes from V2’s front bumper and moves around to the front fenders. The pics additionally show a rear wing coming off the trunk lid, and the Miata also rocks a roll cage, which we figure probably isn’t part of the kit but you never know.

As far as we can tell the kit isn’t yet available for American consumers, but you can bet everyone headed to cover this year’s Tokyo Auto Salon will have oodles of pics of the Rocket Bunny-ed Mazda – including your friends at Super Street! 2016 TAS is set for January 15 to 17 at the Makuhari Messe, Chiba City, Japan; make sure to come on back each day for a full report from the show!

Superstreet: If there’s one thing you guys hate with all of your soul, it’s the idea of OEM vehicle manufacturers teaming up with one another on new vehicle offerings, the way that GM and Honda/Acura have agreed upon.

Unlike most builds that are a product of some grand scheme of daydreaming and sometimes documenting plans for picking up a specific car and applying a headful of parts and changes to it, this turbocharged 1995 Mazda Miata is the exact opposite. Its owners and builders, brothers Alex and David Wong, had no intentions of

One of the most unexpected things to emerge from an unusual 2020 was just how hot the Japanese tuner car collector market is.
