Yup, Mazda has always been full of surprises

While Mazda Furai strikes an incredibly strong presence, the real beauty of the project – and it’s most valuable asset as a real-world test-bed.

Some cool info:-

- The body surface provides ample opportunity to feature core design elements such as aggressive headlamps and Mazda’s trademark five-point grille.
- The headlamp trim pieces function as guide frames to help cancel aerodynamic lift.
- High-pressure zones just above the front wheels are relieved to serve the same end.
- The air flow package takes air moving under the front of the car and guides it inside the body to the engine-cooling radiators.
- Nagare textures incorporated in the side surfaces feed air to the rear brakes, the oil cooler and the transmission cooler.
- An under-car diffuser that begins rising aft of the cockpit helps draw the volume of air flowing through the heat exchangers and engine bay out the rear.

Not your average concept car, this.
