It's the Tokyo Motor Show in 1997 with all eyes on the Mazda stand as the much anticipated second generation of MX5 is set to be revealed. Will the new NB model live up to the perfected recipe of the NA that left the whole world grinning? .
If you go by the articles that flooded the magazines in the months following the answer was a big yes. Gone were the pop up headlights in favor of a more mature fixed unit, the sleeker looks didn’t stop there with the whole car being refined with minor tweaks such as a stronger lip along the bootline, new look rear lights, integrated door handles and a refined interior.
It wasn’t just the looks that had been refined, the little 1.8 had been tweaked to make the NB feel noticeably more nimble and spritely instantly becoming the choice for track days among many enthusiasts.
