Mazda gives green light to MX-5 GT

October 17, 2013
Mazda has reportedly given the production nod to the MX-5 GT concept that debuted earlier this year at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Following the blueprint of the MX-5 GT concept, the road-going version of the hopped-up roadster will be tuned by UK-based JOTA, Mazda’s racing partner. The MX-5 GT will retain its standard 2.0L naturally-aspirated four-cylinder, but a number of tweaks – including a new exhaust system, hotter cam and ECU flash – will bump power from 157 horsepower to 203 ponies.

The MX-5 GT will be a post-tile tune to get around homologation rules.

Pricing for the package has yet to be confirmed, but Auto Express says the total package will set buyers back £30,000, or $48,350. In the UK the standard MX-5 lists from £18,495 ($29,700).

Given its JOTA connection and high price tag, it’s possible Mazda could reserve the MX-5 GT for the British market.
