The original MX-5 BBR turbo was launched in 1990, when PH was but a twinkle in Petrol Ted's eye. The new 20th anniversary edition fits both Mk1 and Mk2 variants in both 1.6 and 1.8 litre capacities, and in the words of BBR 'transforms the much loved Mazda MX-5 into a serious driving machine, elevating its performance from sedate to electrifying'.
That original 1990 turbo kit offered 150bhp but, as you might expect, time has matured the product - it now offers a dyno-proven 220bhp from just 1.6-litres.
If you're one of those folk who like it all done for you, BBR is offering completely renovated MK1 MX-5s with the turbo kit fitted, a tweaked chassis, leather seats and your choice of paint colour for a reasonable sounding £7,500. Visit the company website for more info.
Oh, and happy birthday folks!
