this Subaru-powered MX-5 is a real all-terrain vehicle

Completely frosty American mechanics converted a Mazda MX5 into an off-roader equipped with Subaru Impreza WRX STI mechanics.

Launched in 1989, the first Mazda MX-5 of the name rekindled the flame of small roadsters. Models initiated by English manufacturers after World War II. Fun to drive, easy to maintain and affordable, they experienced the decline at the beginning of the 80s. From the launch of its convertible, the Mazda MX-5 was an incredible success, which did not last. still not out of breath today.


Widely collected today, the first Mazda MX-5s are often restored to their former glory. But not the one we are going to talk about today! Recovered in spare parts by American enthusiasts, keen on mechanics, it has been converted into an all-terrain vehicle! No more very low ground clearance, room for a machine able to trudge everywhere



The most astonishing thing is that the original Mazda mechanics are no more. Instead, our two friends have grafted the entrails of a Subaru Impreza WRX STI to their all-terrain MX-5. Now equipped with a turbocharged 4-cylinder boxer engine and all-wheel drive, the “MX-5” is transfigured. Become an ultra-fun and very powerful machine, the little Japanese completely changed philosophy. We can only salute the quality of thehuge work which was made … Whether we like it or not.
