Mazda MX-5 Miata V8 Up Against Corvette In Purchasing Dilemma
Anyone who has in the region of $80,000 to spend on the purchase of a new supercar might be in the dilemma of choosing between the Chevrolet Corvette or the V8 Mazda MX-5. Both of the vehicles are in a similar price bracket and both offered superb performance.
The Mazda MX-5 Miata with the V8 engine does command a great deal of attention as it wasn’t actually made to utilize the V8 engine. However tuners at Flying Mazda managed to come up with a great conversion for the V8 for the vehicle and it is going to revolve around the V8 LS3 6.2 litre engine sourced from GM.
Together with the lightweight body of the Mazda MX-5 Miata the V8 engine is going to offer up performance that should be great. There is a downside though and this is that Flying Mazda does charge a high price for the conversion.
They said that only those who truly desire the Mazda MX-5 Miata should go for the V8 package. The cost of the conversion comes in at around $80,000, this is without the cost of the vehicle itself.
For this amount of money you might want to forget about the the Mazda MX-5 Miata, you could pick up a V8 Chevrolet Corvette.
