i have just bought my first MX-5 2001 Sport
i was told by the seller that it is a limited edition Nardi Torino. It does have a NT steering wheel but I cant find any reference to Mazda releasing a limited edition car with that name! Can anybody enlighten me? Cheers
There was no Nardi Torino limited edition. It could be another limited edition or a normal Sport model. Any other details on the car or photos may bring something To light.
it seems to be a normal mkii sport but has Nardi Torino lable on the steering wheel. Is that a normal wheel for the model?
Nardi Torino was just the model of steering wheel fitted by Mazda to these cars. I think its often the case that garages embellish the identities of cars to make the sale.
I thought the Nardi branding was replaced with a Mazda wings logo on 2001 models assuming that your car is a facelift model. It could be a late registered pre-facelift though.
The Nardi logo was retained, just moved, I’ll correct myself “Torino” is just where Nardi is based, not the model of wheel.
Oh I see
thanks for all your help
what do you mean by ’ a face lift model’ though?
mine is registered late as you say in October 2001 it’s a 51 plate
Which steering wheel do you have? The top or bottom one?
I have the bottom one!
Yours is a facelift model then, referred to by many as a Mk2.5
