MX-5 GT Sort of Gets the Green Light

Kit will be available to retrofit existing MX-5s

During the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2012 an interesting Mazda MX-5 GT was unveiled producing 203 hp from a naturally aspirated engine. Since it would take too long to get a factory built MX-5 GT ready for the road company called Jota will be offering a kit to turn standard MX-5 cars into the GT version.

The standard car produces 157 hp and Jota claims there kit will increase that to 203 hp with nothing but a computer reprogram and some exhaust changes. The power promises sound a bit far-fetched.

Buyers with more money will be able to buy a brand-new MX-5 with the special kit already installed. The car will have a three year warranty and is expected to sell for under £30,000.

It didn’t give us anything more than a look at the MX-5’s new body. That would have been fine for any other car, but this is the Miata we’re talking about here. The full details of the sports roadster are expected to be announced at the Paris Motor Show, but that didn’t stop the folks over at Mo ...

Filed under: Convertible, Performance, Mazda, Infotainment We've had few days to digest the all-new 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata since the roadster was first revealed on Wednesday evening when we offered you our first impressions.
