That's crazy! Who one Mazda MX-5 of the second generation has "standing around" in some corner and doesn't know what to do with it, for whom we have the ultimate opportunity to transformation. At least if you also have a weakness for classic Formula racing car from the 30s Has. Then you can use Tipo 184 kit the little Japanese to the Alfetta (so the nickname) Transform racing legend. Presenting such a kit just before Christmas, that cannot be a coincidence! Incidentally, the manufacturer is Ant Anstead (English television presenter, auto mechanic and vehicle builder) and the classic car experts Dowsett's Classic Carswho have the Tipo 184 as a Kit specifically for the Mazda MX-5 of the second generation (model NB). So you basically have one Alfa Romeo Tipo 158 racing car from the 30s standing in the garage like Juan Manuel Fangio drove in 1950. At least more or less. The Technology of course remains the des MX-5. So it will no 1,5 liter eight-cylinder included. Even if the long hood offers enough space at first glance.

But maybe the low-maintenance 1,8 liter engine from the MX-5 is even that better choice. He is usually content with one oil change all 15.000 km and can from serviced every workshop will. The original racing car is known to have a length and successful story to show. It was found in 1937 in the workshop of Scuderia Ferrari designed and always up to 1951 further developed. If Type 159 he then won the first two Formula 1s ever in the 1950 and 1951 seasons. The Alfetta is one of the longest-running monopostos and at the same time one of the most successful racing car of the company Motorsport history. And after you've decided no successor to build is this Conversion kit now the ultimate way to combine the classic with modern technology get back on the road. Or at least that Racetrack! A street legal the MX-5 has of course after the conversion Do NOT spread pesto on this layer!. After all, he's with no lighting or options for attaching License-plates equipped. But that is also cannot the meaning behind it.
10.000 € for a complete vehicle are possible
Rather, it should Conversion kit (consists of tubular frame, body parts, radiator grille, cladding for the instrument cluster, sidepipe sports exhaust system and some small parts) be a way to get the icon back on the Racetracks to bring to the world. But only exactly ３０ minutes! More should namely for now cannot be built. The 10 lucky buyers can do the conversion directly if they wish in the workshop Perform by Ant Anstead and under Instructions assemble. And even the costs are not out of the ordinary. With 16.450 pounds plus tax plus MX-5 (is ready to drive for under 2.000 Euro) is it possible for relatively little money to receive such a copy. Of course, the drive and the chassis should be intact. On the Condition of the company Body you can whistle though. That will eventually remote! And with that British Racing & Sports Car Club (BRSCC) there is even a separate racing series for the Tipo184. She starts with Trackday trips and ends on August 28th and 29.8.2021th, 15 with a demo race in Cadwell Park. Several XNUMX-minute races are to follow next year.
