Odometer Reading: 79000
MOT Expiry: 30/04/2020

Very bright, lovingly restored and unmodified example of this 1990s sportscar sensation.
Finished in classic red with black interior, with a new hood fitted by the previous owner, CD-player and bright alloy wheels, plus, of course the desirable pop-up headlights.
This MX5 was UK-registered when new and has since covered 79,000 miles with just 3 owners. Recently serviced and MOT'd until April 2020, with new battery and comprehensive history.
Recently completed work includes refurbishment of the sills and rear arches, reinstating the underbody protection and extensive restoration of the paintwork.
A reliable daily driver and fantastic fun for top-down road trips, this modern classic can surely only appreciate in value.

There has been much renovation work to this UK-market MX-5 and it comes with comprehensive history, making it a highly-tempting modern classic offering.
