Sold Mazda MX5 1990

Mazda MX5 1990



Throughout the MX5's lifetime, the automotive world has had a tough time finding enough unhackneyed ways to praise its supreme balance, handling, and accommodating driving experience.

When the MX5 was introduced in 1990, the world's most written-about and, arguably, most desirable affordable car was here at last. In fact, I'd reckon its fair to say that this is the two-seat roadster that car enthusiasts had been screaming for since the demise of the old Lotus Elan.


  • The MX-5's front-mounted 114bhp engine has two ingredients essential in any sports car powerplant: instant throttle response and an invigorating exhaust note, making for an aural as well as tactile pleasure.
  • Legendary handling and ride.
  • Cambelts just done.
  • New Limited Slip Diff.
  • Very tidy interior – in fact, sit in the driver's seat and apart from the non-adjustable steering wheel being a shade too low, every control is just where you need it. Very accomodating interior – even with the hood up there is no shortage of room. Deep footwells keep cramp out of your feet and even drivers well over six foot should have no problems with headroom.
  • The whole driveline encourages you to drive as precisely as it operates. This car will reward you with a rare degree of driver satisfaction.
  • It takes just one blast down a favourite country road to make you realise the MX-5 has a chassis that performs beyond all reasonable expectation.
  • Through flat-out sweeping bends the MX-5's balance is breathtaking. Once you have settled in the corner it will fly round, glued unerringly to your chosen line.
  • The build quality of this car is beyond reproach, combining gleaming red paintwork with tight fitting panels and a leak-free, brand spanking new soft top.

Mazda's single-minded determination to provide fun has produced a car of the rarest quality. Above all else it is its ability to involve the driver intimately in its every reaction and response that makes this sports car a joy to drive. Few others, at any price, can offer so much. Car will be sold WOF'd and Registered, if sold in New Zealand. TRANSPORT / WORLDWIDE SHIPPING CAN BE ORGANISED ON THIS VEHICLE ON BUYER'S BEHALF AT BUYERS COST. Viewing is STRICTLY BY PRIOR APPOINTMENT only.
