I unearthed this road test of an MX5 the other day.
It’s hosted by a younger-looking James May.
The model is the same as mine – 1800cc motor and six speed gearbox. It was promoted in the UK as a special edition, and never sold here. The specifications are the same as the version sold in Australia as the NB.
What he says is right. It is reliable, doesn’t leak, and is fun to drive.
For me, the best feature is its gearbox. My kids can’t drive manuals.
