Miata street drift – donuts, smoke and awesome sound!

miata street driftMiata street drift – donuts, smoke and awesome sound! Ok, there’s not so much street drifting in this video. It’s more showing off and searching for empty parking lots to drift in. 🙂 But this kid isn’t afraid to push this car to its limits, that’s for sure. That in the video is a nice 2006 Mazda Miata MX-5. You can tell that it has been tuned and modified momentarily thanks to the sound it makes.

Miata street drift – donuts, smoke and awesome sound!

The Mazda MX-5, released as the Mazda MX-5 Miata in North America and as the Eunos Roadster in Japan, is a lightweight two-seater roadster with a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout. Manufactured by Mazda in Hiroshima, Japan, the model debuted in 1989 at the Chicago Auto Show. The MX-5 was conceived as a small roadster – with light weight and minimal mechanical complexity limited only by legal and safety requirements, while being technologically modern and reliable.

This Miata in the video is the third generation model that was launched in 2005 (for the 2006 model year). It continues to be the best-selling two-seat convertible sports car in history and by April 2016, over one million MX-5s had been built and sold around the world. Production of the MX-5 had fallen by 2013 to below 14,000 units, due to the world finance crisis in 2008, and the pre-announcement in 2012 of the coming ND model.

Since the launch of the third generation, Mazda has consolidated worldwide marketing using the MX-5 name with the exception of the United States where it is marketed as the MX-5 Miata. It’s very popular in the drifting world. When I think about it, I want one too. I mean, it’s too bad that the price starts at $25.000!! Why couldn’t they make it more affordable? Oh, Miata, Miata!
