The Mazda MX-5 GT first seen during the Goodwood Festival of Speed will be available for purchase.
Mazda’s roadster already commands a cult following of drivers who appreciate its low cost, high fun value proposition. The tuned version won’t be offered through Mazda, but rather as a kit to be fitted after production by Jota Sport. The company estimates that including the cost of the car, customers will spend about £30,000, which converts to roughly $48,000 in the U.S.
For that price, the car gets a revised suspension, sports exhaust and an ECU tweak that increase horsepower from the U.K. spec 2.0-liter four cylinder from 157 hp to 203.
It isn’t clear if the kit will be offered in the U.S. or what the cost would be, although there’s a good chance that it would be less expensive here than there.
