If there’s a car that is always called “THE” Driver’s Car, it’s the Mazda MX-5. With he first generation NA1 MX-5s now 25 years old, they are a seriously cheap way to have a good time both on the street on on the track. We’re off to Washington State, USA to check out a unique example, complete with flat black paint, slammed on its guts with XXR 513s. It’s a value for money double match made in heaven, with the XXRs completing the look beautifully. we hope you enjoy this article, and we hope it inspires you as much as it has us. If you want a set of XXRs, Ozzy Tyres are the place to get them.
