It definitely is lol. Almost identical mechanical components as a 1.5L NC Miata MX-5 but 300lbs heavier. Still quick though. Although not sure if I wanna go too quick in this car…
That was what I thought about the rear too! It looks so much like the Scuderia.
And you’re right about the Zonda-esque front too I guess, I was thinking that it looks similar to a car I know but couldn’t lay a finger on one.
But the NC is already so heavy, we call it the boat lol
Wasn’t the NC 2005 only around 1.15 tons?
I mean in hindsight it doesn’t seem like much, but for a puny cabriolet, that’s road barge weight right there lol
It’s the heaviest MX5, and it’s such a small car But I’m sure it’s cool to drive anyway!
Agreed man. It’s cool to drive and with some moderate mods and effort, you can really lighten it up, bump up the acceleration and still have a lot of stock functionalities.
still lighter than an 86
BUT NOT FASTER AND IT SOUNDS NUTS WITH A SUPERCHARGER
My eyes cannot compute that front end
Now we know where Lister got the idea for their Storm.
The Lada 110/111/112 came out in 1995, but looks dated from the front - an inevitable consequence of its design commencing in 1987 but not being completed until well after the fall of the Soviet Union.
