This vehicle, one of the limited in volume (1 of 300 for the UK) NC 'Launch Edition' models, comes with the rare Mazda Factory removeable Hardtop (with heated rear window element, cover & wall brackets) in matching Velocity Red and features a fully loaded specification and trim level arguably unmatched until the 25th Anniversary Edition of 2014. As a result, the finish and features of this car belie its age and put it into a different league for enjoyment and collectability, when compared with a std. trimmed 2.0Lt Sport.

This example has been in the care of an automotive OEM industry professional, sportscar and MX5 enthusiast who has spared no expense in maintaining and enhancing this particular vehicle. The primary upgrade that make this vehicle such a standout is the fitment of a NC Super 200 kit by renowned MX-5 tuner, BBR GTI of Northamptonshire, giving the car a similar if not better performance than the latest ND MK4 181 Bhp update.

The spec upgrades undertaken by the current owner incl.;
• BBR NC Super 200 Kit, Incl.
o High flow BBR panel air filter
o BBR stainless steel 4 into 1 exhaust manifold
o BBR high performance intake and exhaust camshafts
o BBR StarChip ECU remap
• Suspension; <30mm Eibach Pro Sports Spring Set (with std. Bilstein shock absorbers)
• Brake upgrades; Carbotech FT/EBC Yellowstuff RR Brake-pads, Castrol React Dot 4 Performance Fluid, upgraded metal brake lines
• 17” Alloy Wheel Refurbishment (diamond cut, Shadow-chrome refinish)
• X4 Avon ZV7 Tyres (fitted summer 2020)
• Mud Guards FR & RR – colour matched Velocity Red
• Corrosion repair; RR of Lower sills & tops of RR Wheel-arches
Note: at time of placing this advert, a std. 2.0 Lt Sport MK 3.5 soft-top with BBR Super 200 kit is on sale for £11k on the source companies’ website making this arguably something of a bargain.

Previous owners, incl. a retired car salesman (who’d owned an original NA6, from before the official launch) have fitted the following upgrades;
• Audiolinks Module – allows for Stereo Head Unit connection to iPod/Phone (see photo)
• Lockwood Grille, chrome wire mesh type (original grille still fitted underneath)

There is so much that could be said about how well this car drives and the notably superior performance to a standard NC 2.0Lt, but the proof will be in doing so by the seat of your pants. It would be disingenuous to say that this car is a show queen or in concourse condition but as the photos attest and any inspection will confirm, the car is very clean, straight and tidy. Would equally suit a collector or someone who wants a well spec’d and healthy NC package MX-5 to get out there and do some road trips, keep up with modern traffic and even the odd circuit day.

Available for viewing after business hrs or on weekends with prior notification.
Note: some additional mileage accumulation expected from that quoted.

Some history of the NC MX-5 Model;
After the first two generations of MX-5 (NA & NB) had literally reinvented the affordable roadster, Mazda went all out to develop a successor to compete with the multitude of upstart imitators that had been launched in the intervening years. The MK3 NC model was an all-new RWD platform with significant improvements in suspension design, power and torque (from a chain, not belt driven new generation EURO 4 compliant motor), crashworthiness, content and features. As a result, the car was awarded both the Car of the Year Japan Award as well as the prestigious Wheels Magazine Car of the Year (Australia) and was an instant international sales success
