Enhanced 1996 1.8 Mk1 Eunos VR Ltd.
The car is in Gloucestershire
An upgraded and very versatile 1996 MX5, used for sprints, shopping, classic car tours, track days, camping,…you name it. 155Bhp, Meister R coil-overs, Elise seats and much more. Burgundy Red with tan hood & interior.

Frequent class winner in Javelin Trackdays Sprint Series and its predecessor, the Japanese Sprint Series. Used for many classic car tours in the north of England but has also taken my wife and I camping. It’s done track days, an autosolo and we’ve pottered about in it. And it has never broken down. It’s been carefully developed and maintained to ensure peak performance and reliability. Very detailed record of use and work done in my ownership.
One of 400 made in this much sought after special edition; as standard it has a Torsen limited-slip differential, with 1:4.3 final drive ratio, front brace between the spring turrets, power steering, air conditioning (since removed), electric ariel, electric windows, lightweight Enkei alloy wheels, 15 x 50 x 195 tyres (currently with nearly new Rainsport 5s), and chrome kick-plates with the roadster logo. It also had thick leather seats with built-in speakers (removed but included in the package).
It was imported from Japan on 22/8/2006 by MX5 City and given the registration N305FKU by the DVLA
