    Why are cars so cheap in Europe, in America I can’t find anything this cheap, maybe i just don’t know how to look.

    How do you have MX-5’s like that for that cheap over there? here in the states, you’d pay 2-3 grand for that exact car.

    I've watched this over and over and don't get it, it's a race I.e. Which is faster.
    First bloke does 43.09
    Other bloke does 43.23 and apparently he's the winner.
    Would someone please explain how he's the winner by not beating the first bloke's time??? 🤔

    But surely, in the interest of fairness of weight, someone should have been in the passenger seat of the MX-5?

    They're shot engines for wankers.

    Be nice to see you guys do something with honda s2000 similar to mx5 but stock much faster

  • John Hosking

    As hyundai coupe club member... MX5 was right choice. The coupe is slow even the V6. The older 2.0L RD models are slightly faster than the V6 as the V6 is heavier.

    So very satisfying seeing an old MX5 do so well against a new car with twice the power !
