1996 Mazda MX-5 1.8 UK Car
British Racing Green
Genuine Original Car
Ready For The Sun
The MX-5 Roadster
In 1989, the Japanese motor industry came of age, and Mazda built a traditional
British sports car in the shape of the MX-5. It looked like a Lotus, sounded like a
Triumph, and went like an MGB. Except there was one important difference: it all
worked and it was reliable. In short, the MX-5 was the perfect roadster for those
who wanted the traditional British sports car experience without the associated
worries of unreliability and oil leaks.
With a powerful twin-cam engine that’s more exciting than it's 1.6 litres sibling, the
MX-5 offers sufficient performance, though not enough to trouble the fine handling
There are plenty of hatches that are more powerful and quicker in a straight-line,
but none is as entertaining or life-affirming as this little rear-drive roadster.
The MX-5 proves that the genuine roadster thrill still exists, even in this era of
oversized sports cars.
Getting the top down and enjoying a proper ride has never been so simplified.
With a classic look that turns heads, the Mazda MX-5 is built to hug the road and
deliver an authentic roadster feel. The aerodynamic design helps heighten the sporty
performance. It really is a car that's a joy to drive. Features a Z-folding vinyl soft-top
for simple, "throw-it-back" top-down fun. It can be closed, latched and opened with
minimum effort, and an easy-to-use single central lock - leaving you fully able to
concentrate on having some fun in the sun.
The rear-wheel drive chassis layout guarantees 50/50 weight distribution for
outstanding balance and agility.
Following the classic sports car formula, with the engine in the front, driving
the rear wheels, giving great balance. The gear change is light and precise, the
ride is still smooth though, the MX-5’s brilliant dynamics remain. The MX-5 is
such a polished performer that it’s hard to isolate one single area in which it excels.

The MK1 The Purest & Finest
All too often demand for new models compromises the purity of a design, and the
mark 1 cars are the best driving and best handling of them all, the steering is sweet,
and the gearchange is as precise as a rifle bolt. Few cars are as entertaining as
this little rear-drive roadster. There is a lightness to touch and manovuerablity to the
handling that is totally unique to this model. The Mk1 MX-5 is the original and genuine
Full Service History
Service booklet is present with 9 stamps. All the old MoT's and invoices are present.
The car is 100 % mechanically with no faults and it starts first time every time with a
strong battery, clutch, brakes, suspension, exhaust and drive all strong with no known
issues, all switchgear works perfect. The shocks springs have been replaced with
proper parts and it rides and handles superbly.
The twin cam 1.8 16v engine is free revving and raspy and is just as eager as it
should be. It's also dry underside and inside the wheel wells ans sills show no
corrosion. The engine bay is very clean and the whole nose and front end bumpers
etc is very tidy. The driver side rear arch has some very minor peppering on the
underside of the lip, otherwise this would be perfect, it's the only weak spot on
the whole car.
