This is your chance to find out why the Mazda MX5 is the world’s best selling sports car. Its also a brilliant way to explore the fabulous roads and countryside of Northumberland, Scotland and the Scottish Borders. The roads up here are very much quieter than those further south and with unlimited mileage on all of our cars, you can make the most of your rental.
Based in Berwick upon Tweed, each car rental includes full comprehensive insurance, unlimited mileage, breakdown cover, Sat Nav. We run our own workshop and have 15+ years of experience with MX5s so every car is maintained to the highest standard ensuring it performs safely and reliably. Drivers need to be a minimum of 25 years old.
Our cars are Mazda MX5 Eunos Mk1s, generally acknowledged to be the one of the best sports cars ever produced. Even the car magazines of today still praise the handling abilities and sheer fun to be had in a good MX5 Mk1. I have two Mazda MX5s available both finished in Neo Green with tan leather seats, Nardi wood-rimmed steering wheel and these look as good as they drive. The 1.6 engine is incredibly responsive and the five speed gearbox has a beautiful feel. Mazda based the MX5’s design heavily on the Lotus Elan and MGB, improving on both cars in every area, particularly reliability. Think of it as the great British sports car, only built properly by the Japanese!
