This MX-5 Miata is customized to thrill on and off the track.
The Mazda MX-5 Miata is known as a competent track car, but that generally doesn't stop owners from striving to make their roadster perform better than stock. This heavily modified NC-generation 2008 Miata in Mica Gray is a perfect example, promising an exciting blend of street and track performance.
This two-owner gem, with a mere 36,000 miles on the odometer and a clean Carfax history, stands out for the extensive list of aftermarket modifications that elevate its performance on the track and street.
The Miata NC's exterior upgrades include an APR GTC-200 PRHT wing, plus Bomex side skirts and front and rear bumpers for a racy look. It also has a Cyberbug-made Delrin air splitter, a custom rear diffuser, and custom fog lamps doubling as DRLs, combining style with functionality.
Interior highlights include Infinity Kappa 32.9cf door speakers, 3M Di-Noc carbon fiber accents, VAC Motorsports custom seat bases, and a Nardi Rally Deep Corn 330mm steering wheel. A Momo Prototipo is currently installed, however. Carbon/Kevlar seats, racing harness, shift lights, Smart Top module, A6 Leopard Black Pearl shift knob, and Ultimate aluminum pedals complete the cockpit.
Under the hood, this third-generation Miata has undergone a comprehensive overhaul to deliver a high-performance driving experience. The supercharged inline-four engine has a shorter Cosworth supercharger pulley, 550cc fuel injectors, an ACT ZM4-HDSS clutch, and an AEM water injection kit with a Devilsown water injection nozzle headline the modifications.
While a dyno sheet is unavailable, the power plant is said to produce up to 250 wheel horsepower.
The engine's air intake benefits from a Cosworth air filter, while Moto-East tuned the 2.0-liter Cosworth supercharger with RaceRom. The DashDAQ facilitates monitoring and control with custom mounts and additional gauges.
The drivetrain sees custom enhancements with a differential FGR to 3.63, an FM lightweight flywheel, and a Fumoto Oil Drain plug. The exhaust system received custom mid-pipe and center exhaust enhancements. The chassis and suspension were upgraded with AutoExe adjustable end links and Ohlins DFV Custom valved race suspension.
This Miata's wheels, tires, and brakes are equally impressive, featuring Volk CE28N Titanium Gun Metal wheels, Racing Brake Front BBK, Racing Brake Rear RX-8 BBK, and R888R tires.
This 2008 Mazda Miata MC is currently up for grabs on The Group B website. It has a price tag of $23,900 - not bad considering its extensive upgrades.
