Racing Features and Price

Mazda has taken the already sporty Mazda MX-5 Miata and made it even sportier by turning it into a bonafide race car. The 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Cup race car will be fitted with a safety cage, racing brakes and suspension, and it will be stripped of all unnecessary hardware. It also will be eligible for SCCA club races and NASA racing.

This ready-to-race turnkey vehicle — straight from the factory — will cost $53,000. For that price, drivers will also get full complement of track safety gear, an optimized suspension, tires and wheels, and a sealed engine, differential, transmission, and ECU. You’ll only need to provide your own racing seat with this fully outfitted race car.
