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 favour 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.
Here at the Classic Throttle Shop, we are large enthusiasts of thoroughbred sports cars and are proud to present as part of a large collection of Miatas, this impressive second-generation MX-5 roadster. With its 142 hp revvy 1.8 litre power plant nestled in a light-wight skeleton chassis inspired by the Lotus Elan, our Australian delivered roadster presents in exceptional condition.
With only 21,500 kms on the clock this 2-owner car is definitely one for the collector or an enthusiast who wants to add one of the greatest purebred driver’s sports cars to their line up. Delivered new to a Mr John Chapman from Brisbane in 2002, Queensland’s OLDMAC Mazda has continued to maintain and service the car from delivery up until the end of 2019.
Built in the dark metallic Titanium colour, all the ferocious lines and details are exposed showing the MX-5’s character and ability. The mix of rich Camel brown with black leather interior sets the tone for the focused driving experience. Inside the original Mazda wallet is the owner's manual with delivery slip, warranty card and service book which shows the frequent servicing by the Mazda dealer.
Owned and kept by a top MX-5 collector, the car has been very well looked after and maintained correctly. Ever becoming rarer are MX-5’s in original near new condition. One that you have to see to believe this little roadster is ready to take you for that perfect summer drive on your favorite twisty road.
