Walkaround Video: 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata / Roadster (ND5RC)

June 10, 2015

Guys, I'll get back to the real "Wasabi Cars" shortly, but I had my first sighting of the as yet unreleased Mazda MX-5, and felt the need to share. Its driver had made the trip from Hiroshima to Northern Kyushu, presumably to see what was up at the 7th Neo-classic Car Festival being held at the time.

This MX5 Convertible was built in 2016. It has a 1,496cc inline 4 engine.

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
