1996 MK1 Mazda MX-5 1.8i. British Racing Green. Only 64k. 4 Owners. FSH. Ready to go.


We are very pleased to offer an absolute time warp example of a 1996 Mazda MX-5 MK1. First registered in August 96 by the supplying Mazda dealership, Freeways in Brighton and finished in the ever popular colour of British Racing green with black cloth trim. Demand for low mileage MX-5’s continues to rise and its no surprise as these are fantastic cars to own and drive. This is a 1.8 Twin Cam and it offers brisk performance sublime handling and offers a real grin factor.

Our MX-5 has lived a charmed life and has covered only 64k in 23 years with only 4 previous owners and is accompanied with a comprehensive service history. This Mazda has been serviced regardless of cost and has a fully stamped up service book as well as every single MOT certificate and maintenance invoice. It has recently benefitted from a cambelt and water pump, new catalytic convertor, exhaust, 4 x new Dunlop Sport tyres and front discs, pads and calipers

On the road it is very easy to feel why these cars have a global following. The engine is very sweet and fires instantly and is mated to a smooth five speed transmission, it just feels as if its ready to be driven anywhere. Performance is strong right through the rev range. It has also been fitted with a Pipercross air filter and sports exhaust which add to the soundtrack especially when the roof is down. Its not loud in any way, it has a nice Sports Car sound which matches the experience.

The interior is also a true timewarp. The seats still look new and the same can be said about the switch gear. The only non original componenet is the Sports steering wheel, the rest is beautifully preserved. The soft top is also in fantastic condition and is accompanied with a Tonneau cover. The paintwork gleams and it belies its 23 year vintage with only minor age related marks that do not detract from its appearence. It is solid in all the correct MX-5 places and is presented as a well cared for low mileage example, serviced and ready for the road. As you can see from the pics, the engine bay is very nicely detailed and inside boot is also well preserved a sign of an easy life.

Vieiwng is essential to appreciate how well this MX-5 has been cared for. These cars offer a fantastic and very affordable step into Classic open top motoring and have a huge club following and spares availablity and in MK1 guise getting quite rare especially with such a good provenance and history.
