Proof An MX-5 Miata Is As Fast As A Ferrari

Now of course that’s not a stock MX-5. I’ve driven the newest model and while it’s quick and a blast, there’s no way it would keep up with a 488 GTB out of the box. When modded however, look out for them at your local track day.

And here’s your proof. This Nurburgring video comes to us VIA YouTube and it’s pretty telling as to what you can accomplish with some ingenuity, turbocharging, and balls of steel. Light weight and track knowledge coupled with upgraded power is a recipe for awesome. This guy has it in spades.
