I am in love with the car I just found. The Mazda MX5 gives wings to the mundane task of driving. This Mazda is a sport car with the soul of a race car.
A long time ago, before Gran Turismo was a gleam in Yamauchi's eye, before Initial D sanctified RWD, before I was out of shorts let alone behind the wheel, I read in Autocar & Motor about the latest in the nineties wave of science-fiction Japanese sports
Mazda 6 MPS â€“ The forgotten Super Saloon
Exactly a year ago I was woken by my alarm at 4am. Iâ€™m not a morning person, but then this was no ordinary day. I rolled out of the flat and into a taxi to Bristol airport. Most car purchases, especially for students, donâ€™t start with a flight!
After selling my Audi 1.8t Sport I was in the market for something different. There was nothing wrong with the Audi, it was just a bit dull and after running it for 13 months, (a lifetime in cars for me!) it was time for a change.
The Rex has been trying oh so hard to try and bankrupt me recently. Points for trying or will it be handed its P45?
I've owned my RX8 for 6 months now, but prior to the Mazda, I'd had 2 Focus STs in succession, so was used to a torque laden engine. The Mazda is obviously a bit different - have I clicked with it?
At first I thought it was the snow, maybe it had frozen me out of the car.
I've only racked up 3500ish miles since I got it but i've enjoyed every one I can remember! I'd loved to have had the time to do double that mileage and taken the car on circuits and roads where I could've really pushed it along.
Say hello to the â€˜Demi-Waveâ€™.
Itâ€™s camp and is driven by hairdressers.
