2007 Mazda MX5 Grand Touring
Manufactured at Mazda's Hiroshima plant, the MX-5 debuted in 1989 at the Chicago Auto Show and was conceived and executed under a tightly focused design credo, Jinba ittai, meaning "oneness of horse and rider". Widely noted for its small, light, technologically modern, dynamically balanced, and minimally complex design, the MX-5 has frequently been called a spiritual successor to the 50s and 60s Italian & British roadster sports cars. Generations were internally designated with a two letter codes, beginning with the first generation, the NA.
A third generation, NC, roadster for consignment in excellent overall condition. This one is bathed in True Red and has black wrap on the roof and side mirrors. With low low miles, 11,833, and a few bolt-on upgrades to the suspension and exhaust this is the "must have it" MX5, interested parties, hold tight and read on!
True Red in near showroom condition drapes this British inspired sports car. This is the first year for the retractable hardtop and our consignor has chosen to wrap it and the side mirrors to set off the red, (all of which is easily removable). The front airdam sits below a pair of wrap-around headlights and between the foglights. This gives the front of the car a look as though it's almost smiling at us. The rear of the car mimics this same design with Euro style taillights and twin chrome exhaust tips that peek from below the front bumper.
Black leather heated bucket seats flank a long smooth black console. These buckets, like the exterior, are in near showroom condition with only the driver's outer bolster showing very minor wear. The long swooping console holds power window switches, a small storage compartment, the emergency brake handle and the gear shifter. A black leather wrapped steering wheel holds controls for the radio and cruise control. This fronts a sporty dash that contains various gauges to monitor engine functions. In the center of the dash is the Bose premium stereo that is equipped with AM/FM/CD/Satellite capabilities. Below this are the dials for climate control as well as the heated seat switches, all part of the Grand Touring package. Black carpet floods the cockpit and is protected by a pair of black MX-5 floor mats.
Under the hood lies the heart of this tourer, a 2.0 Inline 4-cylinder powerplant that makes 168hp and is fed via EFI. A 6-speed manual transmission backs this engine up and sends power back to a limited slip 4.10 geared rear axle. All nearly showroom new here.
As if the upside was not enough, now this side can bring stars to your eyes... Nary a hint of road dirt or corrosion this all appears almost factory new, with components in black, natural finish and aluminum. 4 wheel independent suspension is seen and each corner sports Tein Performance coil springs. Single exhaust snakes its way rearward and exits through a performance stainless steel muffler system. Power disc brakes are noted on all 4 corners with the calipers being covered with Brembo dress up kit. Power steering makes the drive a relative ease for any back road or canyon you wish to carve. Note that the original coil springs and exhaust is included with the purchase.
This little sports car fired right up and ran like a champ on the test track with all functions working just great. The power retractable hardtop made things a breeze to go from air-conditioned comfort to open air enjoyment. The suspension and exhaust upgrades make the car handle like it's on rails and it has a noticeable but not too loud performance growl.
The ad slogan went ZOOM! ZOOM! and this car does. I'll leave you with words by automotive critic Jeremy Clarkson. "The fact is that if you want a sports car, the MX-5 is perfect. Nothing on the road will give you better value. Nothing will give you so much fun. The only reason I'm giving it five stars is because I can't give it fourteen!"
