A rebodied Mazda MX-5 – named the Grand Albaycin – has been officially unveiled by Spanish coachbuilder Hurtan.

The Spanish roadster shares its Japanese cousin's standard 1.5- and 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engines, producing 97kW/152Nm and 135kW/205Nm respectively.

Hurtan – which already offers rebodied variants of the Chrysler PT Cruiser and Jeep Wrangler – says it received Mazda’s blessing for the 1930s-inspired project.

Inside the Grand Albaycin, custom cross-stitched tan leather lines the seats, door cards, dashboard panel, handbrake, gear lever knob, and steering wheel, all of which have been borrowed from the MX-5.

The Mazda's plastic fittings have also been substituted with a wooden veneer.

Externally, the manual soft-top and mirrors appear to be the only carry-over components from the Mazda.

The roadster will be assembled at the company's factory in Granada, and is slated for a production run of just 30 units in 2021.

Buyers will be required to put down a €5000 (AU$7800) deposit, however overall pricing is yet to be confirmed – reports out of Europe suggest the base model will start from €59,000 (AU$92,600) plus on road costs.

A hard-top variant – based on the MX-5 RF – is expected to arrive later this year.

CarAdvice has contacted Hurtan for comment on the likelihood of (and costing for) potential Australian deliveries. This story will be updated with its response.
