The Chevrolet Corvette and the Mazda MX-5 Miata are both great choices if you have $80,000 to spend on a new vehicle. Both of the vehicles offer the same performance and both come with a price tag that is about the same.
The Mazda MX-5 Miata offers the V8 engine and this is surprising when you take into account that they didn’t really develop the vehicle to run on the V8 engine. It was Flying Mazda that offered the V8 conversion for the vehicle and it is the 6.2 litre LS3 engine.
The V8 engine alongside the lightweight body of the Mazda MX-5 offers performance that is insane. There is a downside to all this and that is that the company charge a huge fee for the privilege of having the V8 engine.
If you want to add on the V8 engine package to the Mazda MX-5 Miata you are going to have to hand over $80,000. This is without the cost of the vehicle factored in of course.
For that amount of cash you might want to think about getting the V8 Chevrolet Corvette. So would you choose it or would you stick with the Mazda MX-5 Miata and the addition of the V8 engine?
