One Of The First 2016 MX-5s In America Has Already Been Wrecked

This is why we can't have nice things.

This is exactly why we can’t have nice things. A guy in Jacksonville, Florida, managed to secure one of the Launch Edition MX-5s, aka the first one thousand 2016 Miatas available in the US. As he was driving off the lot a guy in an F-150 rear-ended him, causing the roadster to lurch forward and ram into another car. The driver of the F-150 was not a roadster-hater. Unsurprisingly he was under the influence of drugs. Anyway, both the front and rear were smashed and as an added bonus the airbags deployed.

The good news is that no one was injured. The even better news is that Mazda is giving the guy a replacement car! Now the guy can say he owned two Launch Edition MX-5s, a rare feat for sure.
