Mazda MX-5 Yusho: a new special edition of 241 hp thanks to a compressor


After seeing the destruction of two Mazda MX-5 of the first generation with a replica of a Ferrari 250 GTO and a BMW Z3, turn left to suffer with a new edition of the Mazda MX-5 NC, MX-5 Yusho. A special issue that strikes me as one of the best we have seen the MX-5 NC, with permission of the MX-5 Spyder we could meet at the SEMA Show.

This special edition comes with an interesting addition to the mechanics of the Miata: a compressor. Giving so, officially, one of the most common is incorporated in the preparations of Mx-5 and also leaving us with new aesthetic details that do not feel anything wrong with this Miata.

Of course there is a but, is that unfortunately is limited to 100 units and only for the German market, but let’s stick with the good details that incorporates the MX-5 NC. At the next Leipzig Motor Show, Mazda has taken 100 NC units with 4-cylinder engine and 2-liter that delivers 160 horsepower and given them an extra dose of anabolic overfeeding the mixture through the work of a compressor.

A considerable increase in power also comes accompanied by a gearbox with shorter development to maximize the extra dose of horsepower and torque.

It also has a lowered suspension, larger stabilizer bars and new equipment is added to 17-inch wheels instead of the standard 16-inch (in the catalog of Mazda is up to 18 inches) with semi-slicks, the team sound or automatic climate control. We can not ignore either the new diffuser, which has nothing to do with the brand offered in the catalog of NC, with the twin exhaust centered.

Would not be bad to face them with the new compressor blowing more air into the mixture of MX-5, a punishment that does not come to Spain this special edition.
