2008 Mazda Miata MX5

2008 Mazda Miata MX5

The original MX-5 was launched at a time when small roadsters had almost disappeared from the market, with the Alfa Romeo Spider being one of the few comparable models still in production at the time. However, even the Spider was not a direct competitor of the MX-5 due to its significantly higher price tag. That left the Mazda as the spiritual successor to a host of discontinued sports cars such as the MG B, Triumph TR7, Triumph Spitfire, and Fiat Spider. The MX-5 was officially introduced in February 1989 at the Chicago Auto Show. The first generation MX-5 would go on to be the most popular of the four MX-5 generations by a wide margin. 

The lightweight, unibody MX-5 boasts sharp, responsive handling and a curb weight of under 2,500 pounds. Notably, the MX-5 incorporates a longitudinal truss, that provides a rigid connection between the engine and differential to minimize flex and improve balance. Some MX-5 models feature limited slip differentials, traction control, and an anti-lock braking system. With an approximate 50:50 weight balance, the car has nearly neutral handling. Inducing oversteer is easy and very controllable, thus making the MX-5 a popular choice for amateur and stock racing, autocross, and club racing


This striking MX5 roadster is a two owner car that is immaculate condition. The rare and attractive color combination makes it a real attention getter. The low mileage is highly desirable as many Miatas have over 100k miles. Clean CARFAX!
