Hot on the heels of its Yusho prototype's unveiling at the Leipzig Auto Show in Germany, Mazda has confirmed it will enter the new MX-5 GT 'concept' at this week's Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Based on the soon to be retired 'NC' MX-5, the GT is a road-legal car built on Mazda's racing program, developed to gain customer feedback "on a high-performance version" of the iconic roadster.

The MX-5 GT concept is the work of Mazda's UK-based racing partner Jota Sport, with power drawn from an enhanced version of existing 2.0 litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine.

Matched with the standard six-speed manual transmission, output for the MX-5 GT is listed at 152kW - a significant leap from the regular model's 118kW.

Styling and aero modifications include a new rear spoiler, front splitter and rear diffuser, each made from weight-saving carbon fibre.

Suspension is upgraded to a new adjustable system, with a focus on handling, and two centre-mouted chrome tips at the rear signal tweaks made to the car's exhaust system.

While an all-new Mazda MX-5 is on the way, Jota has confirmed that the MX-5 GT is available to its UK-based customers.

Watch for the MX-5 GT to perform in the hill-climb event at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend, where Mazda will also display its popular Takeri concept.

The Takeri is expected to become the next Mazda6, with a debut due for September's Paris Motor Show.
