g0oqx's review of Mazda MX-5 Eunos Roadster

★★★★★

“A great car in all departments”

Written on: 24/07/2016 by g0oqx (3 reviews written)

I bought a Mk1 1.6 Eunos off eBay about a year ago, rust free and in immaculate condition for the ridiculously low price of £800. I'll never sell it.

All the reviews are true - fantastic handling and great gearbox, nothing can touch it on a winding road. As for out and out performance, I've owned three Lotus Elans back in the 1970's and the Mazda feels just as good. Back then, when other cars typically had 0-60 acceleration times of 10-15 seconds, the Elans 7-8 seconds felt quick. Today with 0-60 times of most sporty saloons around 7-9 seconds, the Mazda's 8.5 seconds is less impressive, but you can hardly blame the Mazda for the rest of the world catching up.

If you want a classic sports car for pocket money prices with modern reliability there's nothing else to touch the Mazda.
