1997 Mazda Mx5 Mk1 Eunos B2 Limited


Just 1000 of the Mazda MX5/Eunos B2-Limited were produced. This rare car is finished in Twilight Blue Mica with a blue soft top and chromed 14-inch seven-spoke alloys. The interior features unique moquette pattern seats with black trim, electric windows and air-conditioning.

The B2-Limited benefits from the Series II 1.8 engine with a power increase to 133bhp, an improved 16-bit ECU and a lightweight flywheel. The final drive ratio is 4.3:1 coupled with a Torsen limited-slip differential. Koni dampers and power steering complete the high specification.

This example is in excellent condition, with rust-free sills, a new hood with glass rear window, and a Thatcham alarm/immobiliser. It retains its original twin-head CD/tape head unit and boasts a lovely Nardi steering wheel, Toyo Proxes tyres, chrome roll-over bars and chrome vintage-style mirrors.

Mileage is just 68,000 and the cambelt was changed at 45,000. 

The MX5 Mk 1, or Eunos, is a regular in top 10 drivers’ cars of all time polls, usually coming in next to the Lotus Elan (on which it was based). And it’s not difficult to understand why; rear-wheel drive, agile handling, a high revving engine and 133bhp in such a featherweight and compact package was always going to be fun. 

With MX5 Mk1 prices on the rise and the supply of clean, low mileage example dwindling, this is a fantastic opportunity to invest in a fun modern classic.

The car will be sold with a fresh service, three-month warranty and 12 months MOT.
