as recently as a few months ago we were testing the Mazda MX-5 ND (fourth generation). Shortly after we were covering the presentation of the MX-5 RF, the hard top version. This generation of the best selling roadster of all time is offered with two mechanical: a 1.5 of 131 HP and a 2.0 160. Both mechanical have enough power to enjoy the open sky of this lightweight roadster.
The Mazda MX-5 is not the car that batirás records in circuits, but yes one of the most fun to enjoy for your port mountain favorite and, in addition, at an affordable price. As with virtually all cars, there is always someone that “falls short”. If you think that your Mazda MX-5 needs more horses under the hood you should be attentive to this preparation of BBR.
is Not the first time that the trainer releases a set of “sweets” for the small roadster, having enough experience with the japanese model. On this occasion invites us to install a kit of empowerment on the 2-liter 160 HP. The result is a increase of 90 HP and 120 Nm, so that the total output on the power bank recorded a performance of 251 HP and 320 Nm of torque. Now the hard part will be not to destroy the tires to the minimum stomp.
The maximum speed is, after passing through the preparer, 250 km/h and it is limited electronically. Meanwhile, their ability to perform the 0 to 96 km/h (0 to 60 miles per hour) is reduced to 5 seconds, while the series model, it takes more 7.
Logically, in this preparation there is something more than a simple reprogramming of the ecu. In addition to resetting the ECU has been installed, a compressor twin-scroll, custom downpipe, intercooler, aluminum and high-flow, improvement of hoses and pipes, and a long etcetera. Does your price?, a € 5,250 per.
