Garage Italian Customs, the brand founded by Lapo Elkann, continues to churn out innovations with surprising rhythms: it is now the turn of MX-5 Levanto, unedited version of the Mazda MX-5 2016, updated version of the Japanese “open” car, the fourth generation and more than one million vehicles produced since launch.
The MX-5 Levanto is born from the creativity of Lapo Elkann and is inspired by the 1966 film “The Endless Summer,” directed by Bruce Brown and considered a masterpiece among the documentary film dedicated to surfing. The name of this car, however, comes from Italy: in fact, it is a Ligurian coast pearl, famous for its crystalline sea and considered the Italian birthplace of surfing.
Aesthetically, this car has a body that incorporates the colors of the long summer sunsets with a bright orange tone that fades in indigo height of the waistline. Beautiful are also the 17-inch “Design 66″ diamond cut alloy wheels, able to make the design of the car even more appealing. The interiors are characterized by fabric covers Japanese denim, combined with Alcantara blue water (a water-resistant material) for the seats with orange contrast stitching.
