2002 Silver Mazda MX-5 Mk2

North Lanarkshire, United Kingdom


Mk2.5 240bhp Race Car Road Legal

I have been developing and racing this car for the past three years in the Super Lap Scotland series at Knockhill. Over that time the car has proven reliable and quick ( although needs a better driver to unlock full potential). The car is 2002 MK2.5 and is MOT'd till August 2021. It has a Garret 260 Turbo, recently fully refurbished by AET and was professionally installed by RA Motorsport in Perth now called RRS. This also included installing intercooler, oil cooler, a Kraken manifold, flyin miata 2.5inch down pipe, custom built 2.5inch exhaust, with stage 8 fasteners. It has a ME221 ECU, with dual map facility, delivering a safe 240bhp with 3 way port valve controlling boost. The car is fully stripped and has a full safety device bolt in roll cage, supplied and installed by Paul Sheard, it also has one of Paul Sheard's ultra light bespoke roofs and plexi glass rear window, along with plexi glass side windows. All of this specifically designed around having both a hard top and full roll cage. However pleased be advised these are functional and for racing, it is not a factory tight fit and they are intended to make it viable for wet races etc as opposed to road driving. It comes with a new fully plumbed in zero 360 fire suppressant system. It also has a GCfab vented hood. The suspension is 3 year old BC coilover, 10 kg Front and 6kg Rear, 8kg springs are also included. Wheels are Ultralite F1 15x8 et 35 and Toyo r888 tyres. The underside is solid enough and has been well protected but it really all needs done again, it is not concourse by anyway but neither is holed or of any serious concern. The front chassis rails were done 3 years ago to a good standard and the previous owner had the rear wings and sills done. The arches have been rolled slightly and there is some paint cracking as a result. No serious rust showing, there has been some welding done on the front right floor its not the best but functional. This is an out and out race/track car as is exemplified by the aero package, not ideal for street use but immensely effective on track. The front splitter is a strong DIY package and is 9mm plywood, it provides a great flat surface with the functional air dam and the wing works well and is fully adjustable. It could be easily put back to a fast road car with a new bootlid and front bumper. It has a 6 speed box and 3.6 torsen diff, stage 3 competition clutch which is about two years old. The car will also come with a spare forged bottom end, just put together with maxpeeding rods and other engine parts will be included e.g. Cylinder head, tapped sump. The car has done 126k miles and the engine is still extremely strong, so this was a just in case investment and would allow for more power if installed. A set of 15inch dezent with Rainsport Tyres are also included along with flyin miata chassis rails. As is always the case with a race car lots of money has been spent and there are some excellent parts with this car, the car is not being sold as a concourse perfect example, its a very quick race car and it is a mk2.5 MX5 so you will need to keep on top of it and this is why it has been priced accordingly. Thanks for looking and reading this, please pm me for any further information and it can be viewed/inspected on hydraulic lift if there is a real interest
