This Mazda Eunos Roadster is a pristine example of a first generation Japanese-market MX-5, with incredibly low mileage and a gorgeous specification. It has a 1.6-litre inline-four engine that produces 114bhp, coupled to a slick and involving five-speed manual gearbox. The odometer indicates 7,214 kilometres.

First registered in January 1993 in Japan, it was brought over to the UK just a few years later, where it was re-registered in May 1996. It was then kept by the same owner for the next 23 years. Cared for meticulously and regularly serviced, this MX-5 represents a rare opportunity to experience a 27-year-old car that is in virtually as-new condition.

The exterior paintwork is original and in excellent order. It comes with both a hard top in the same handsome dark green and a manually operated soft top in black. The pop-up headlights that slot into the bonnet are fully operational, and there is an original fixed rear wing on the boot lid. The seven spoke 14-inch wheels are also in great condition, with the original Eunos centre caps as seen on the first generation MX-5 models in Japan.

The tan leather interior of the two-seater Roadster is in great condition with only slight wear on the driver’s seat bolster, and the matching tan carpet also remains in good condition. It is believed that this is a ‘V-Special’ edition, which came with the Nardi wood-rimmed steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake handle, and stainless steel kick plates.

This Eunos Roadster also has simple luxuries like a radio cassette player with CD changer, the ‘Sensory Sound System’ speakers in the headrests, and air-conditioning. Renowned for being both fun to drive and reliable this Roadster has remained true to form with no electrical faults or warning lights reported by the owner.

Cleaver Cars Ltd performed the most recent service at 7,174 kilometres in June 2018, when the vehicle received a routine oil change. Prior to that it was serviced in May 2017 where the oil, air and fuel filters were changed, and new spark plugs were fitted.

The most recent MOT test was on 19 June 2018 at 7,193 kilometres, which resulted in a clean pass. It is current in secure storage under a valid Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN) certificate, and will need a fresh MOT before taking to the road again. The tyres are reported to remain in very good condition.

This Eunos Roadster comes with original documents from Japan, plus a replacement stamped service book with UK history per the summary below, and numerous other invoices and receipts. The original spare wheel is also located in the boot, along with the tool roll, and CD changer.

The best-selling two-seater sports car ever; the success of the Mazda MX-5 / Eunos Roadster model all started with this first generation car. Lightweight, affordable, fun and reliable, it was a well-engineered convertible that captured the affections of enthusiasts around the world. This particular Eunos Roadster represents a rare opportunity to own a box-fresh example that is in genuine ‘time warp’ condition, which would be a superb addition to any collection of pristine modern classics.
