Mazda MX-5 GT Racer does 0-60mph in 3.0 seconds | Still Girly?

Mazda MX-5 GT Racer

Never thought Mazda had the muscle to compete with the likes of BMW, Aston Martin, Porsche, or Lotus on the race track? Well think again, because with the new Mazda MX-5 GT this little roadster has all the tools necessary to take down the high horsepower competition it will face in the upcoming Britcar MSA British Endurance Championship.

The Mazda MX-5 GT, built in cooperation with Jota Sport, produces 275 horsepower (from the 2.0L I-4)and weighs only 1,873 pounds. The impressive 3.0 second 0-60mph time is aided by sequential paddle shift technology and tops out at 160mph.

The MX-5 is already renowned for its superb handling characteristics, now you couple that with blistering speed and you may very well have a world class racer on your hands. With that said it can’t be considered girly, can it?
