The Mazda MX-5 is the iconic model that managed to pass the test of time and still providing the thrill of driving in any circumstance. It is fun, it is comfy and most of all, it delivers that sense of liberty while cruising the roads with the sky above your head.
But sometimes, even iconic models can receive some new goodies from aftermarket shops, which will make them complete from every point of view.
Take for instance this gorgeous red Mazda MX-5 which has received the new alloy wheels or the updated lowering springs from BBR Tuning, which reduces its ride height by 30mm and makes it more stable on the road.
But the real goodies are found under the hood, where each engine from the lineup can be had with some extra horses. For instance, the 1.5-liter can be packed with the BBR Super 160 package and a remapped ECU. That adds up 21 horsepower and 15 lb-ft of torque to the overall power. This package, along with the Super 175+ can be had at 495 GBP.
On the other hand, the 2.0-liter engine can receive the BBR Super 175+ package, with the same remapped ECU, raising its power by 17 horsepwoer and 10 lb-ft of torque.
Finally, there is also the BBR Super 190 package, available at 1995 GBP, fitted on the same 2.0-liter engine and consisting of a cold air intake, custom exhaust system manifold, or stainless steel sports exhaust system. The increase is quite significant: 30 horsepower and 24 lb-ft of torque, for a total of 190 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque.
