Mazda certainly knows how to knock up a concept; witness the lightly terrifying Mazda Furai racer, a car so angry it makes Batman look like a Telly Tubby. That car was the final masterclass in the ‘Nagare’ design series, which focused on the natural world.
With Kodo, Mazda is looking at the poised grace of animals and humans at the start of movement. Says Mazda, “the sudden release of pent-up energy and the interplay of beautiful, supple movements are given full expression”. Quite.
