Default Selling my MX250

Its time to sell my Tribute MX250 on for another project. The car itself is built from a Mk1 1.6 Imported 1992 Mazda MX5. The transformation of this build was all built by myself with the aid of a professional body painter to finish the car off in Reflex Silver and a professional tuner to remote tune the ECU. The car itself has been styled on the Ferrari 250 GTO 1963 tour de France winner.
Since building the car I’ve not covered very many miles, with the Turbo conversion and reconditioned brakes not even being used for more than 10 miles.
The build itself started in 2017 and has been documented in madabout kit cars forum. I’ve over 800 pictures of the build which I’m happy to give to the new owner with the numerous receipts and paperwork etc through the build and before ownership.
See below for the modifications that have been completed to this vehicle. Im sure I may have missed some of the smaller mods off but I have captured all the major changes.

Due to the complete change in appearance of this car from the original MX5 the car has been re-registered as a Tribute MX250 GTO.
Although the car has been fitted with a turbo and has been tuned to around 200 bhp the potential is a lot more, however this build has always been made with the intention of a show car rather than a racing car. I have most if not all the parts to put the engine back to standard if required.

The Car has a full MOT until Sept 2022

With the work caried out to this car im sure you’ll be the owner of a one off that definitely turns heads and gets lots of attention.
