2004 Mazda MX5 (MkII) S-VT Sport BBR Turbo
Not your usual MX-5 here-with a reputed 250bhp and full £7k BBR Turbo Sport 2.5 upgrade including clutch, LSD, suspension and brakes on this 4-owner 35,849 mile beasty!
Not your usual Mazda MX-5. Supplied new in December 2004 this late model MkII already boasted a high spec being the S-VT Sport version featuring full leather with heated seats, air conditioning, front spot lights, electric windows, white dials, aluminium affect trim etc and has had just three owners from new. The previous owner purchased the car in August 2015 after experiencing a Turbo version when living in New Zealand and simply had to have one.
EVO magazine had raved about the BBR Turbo version it road tested a few years ago, so our vendor signed up for the full ‘BBR 2.5 Sport’ pack, costing a whopping £7,000. For that, the car would receive the works, yet retain its stock look (until you look a little closer) including BBR’s excellent Garrett turbo conversion, uprated clutch, full stainless hi-flow exhaust, LSD, uprated turbo grooved disc brakes with uprated pads and beefier suspension to handle the claimed 250bhp now available.
This pocket-rocket-roadster has covered just 35,849 miles and was converted by BBR in 2015 when it had covered just 27,000 miles. With the arrival of small children our original vendor in 2020 (who had the work done) simply didn’t have sufficient opportunity to enjoy the car, hence just 4,000 miles covered during his ownership, and just 3,500 more have been covered with our current owner since purchase from us, with two new hips he is simply struggling to get in and out.
The history file includes the V5C, owners pack and service book showing 11 stamps plus three body inspections, six old MOTs plus VOSA print-out along with service invoicing including those covering the conversion. The current MOT runs until September 2023 recording just one minor advisory. Recent works include a £1,055 spend on a new washer pump and MOT repairs to the underside.
If it whets your appetite further, our consignor was treated to a short blast in the car, and to say it goes well was an understatement, MX5’s don’t usually go that well! Oh, and the plate pretty much says MX5, and almost BBR if you squint hard-enough! Given the high price paid for conversion, atop its purchase it represents something of an enticing, and very quick bargain if you ask us.
