Mazda debuts online museum
New York, New York – Mazda Motor Corporation is offering consumers an inside look at its many automotive firsts through a new online museum. The museum brings the existing Mazda Museum in Hiroshima online, using a combination of flash and broadband video.
Visitors can learn about Mazda milestones, watch video clips of designers talking about how cars are developed, and view 30 of Mazda’s top cars up close. Since 1920, Mazda’s Hiroshima Factory has been known as one of the premier design centres in the automotive industry, and houses an existing on-site museum used as the blueprint for the online version.
Feature cars include the 1967 Cosmo Sport, MX-5 Miata, and the 1991 787B that was the only Japanese car to win at LeMans. The site’s Special Exhibition section will also house concept cars revealed during the 2007 auto show season. The museum can be found at MazdaMuseum.com.
