Mazda MX-5 Coupé

The mkI (NA) MX-5 is one of the greatest cars ever built, and that's solid gold fact. The mkII (NB) is something I've never been as keen on - it dilutes the purity of the lines with flabbiness, squidginess and dullard headlights that replace the original's perfect pop-ups. I've always been very much of the mindset that there's no point buying an NB, when an NA is basically the same but looks better.
However, there is one NB that I'm very keen on, and this is it: the Coupé. Following a motor show prototype, 200 of these were built, solely available on the Japanese domestic market. Various companies have developed lookalike roof kits that can be grafted onto any old MX-5, but these ultra-rare 200 are the real deal. This particular one is located in Hiroshima, priced at around £16,000, and is wearing one of the coolest JDM aftermarket wheel options of all: Hayashi Streets. What are you waiting for? This is a bona fide collector's item...
