    Default Forbidden Fruit - Japan Spec Miata NR-A

    "The Mazda Roadster NR-A is a racing-prepped MX-5 Miata that’s been sold since 2001 in Japan. The latest version is being showed off—with a flashy graphics—at the 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon . . .
    Are we jealous? You bet."

    "The NR-A Racing Spec sports car is distinct from the Global MX-5 Cup factory race car Mazda has already revealed. The NR-A is sold as a semi-stripped-out MX-5 Miata equipped with height-adjustable Bilstein shocks, a strut-tower brace, and a limited-slip differential. Adding a roll bar and tow hooks, both available from Mazda in Japan, renders the NR-A eligible for the Roadster One Make racing series—also in Japan. Being shown at the Tokyo Auto Salon (which is Japan’s equivalent to the SEMA aftermarket show), the “Racing Spec” car is an NR-A kitted out with a roll bar (more of a cage, really), the aforementioned tow hooks, and a natty set of racing graphics. Tallying up the various bits, including the car, in yen on Mazda’s JDM website, we reached a grand total of Ą2,881,148. In American, that converts to $23,905. Damn."


    And for nice boulevard touches to the "Kodo" look, this Tokyo Auto Show unit also looks pretty great:

    And the front portions of the tastefully designed full cages are quite impressive:
