Lot 279 - 1993 Mazda MX5
|Odometer reading||85,000 miles|
There is little doubt that the MX5 re-invigorated the sportscar market on a global scale. Spirited performance combined with good looks, reliability and price put this incredible package firmly on the map. This Mazda MX5 is a genuine UK supplied car and is the desirable 1.8 iS model which benefitted from the more powerful 1.8 litre 130bhp engine as well as a driver’s airbag, ABS, bracing bars to stiffen the body, electric door mirrors and a factory fitted immobiliser.
Originally registered in Japan and imported to the UK in 2002, this 1.8 litre Mk. I MX5 is presented in red with black trim. Supplied with limited slip diff, electric windows, and air conditioning, much has been spent on this little gem. Recent works include a major service which encompassed a new water pump, thermostat, and belts. Also boasting new shocks and springs from the original specification coupled to new battery, wheels, and tyres. Recently, the seats have been re-upholstered in Italian leather with classic headrests and the bodywork has recently been rustproofed and attended to by MX5 restorers. Described by the vendor as in near perfect condition, he has gone to great lengths to ensure that every detail has been attended to. An excellent driving car with an MOT test certificate valid until March 2023, this is a fabulous genuine example.
