2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata Gets ‘Baby NSX’

2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata Gets ‘Baby NSX’

The big question mark, however, comes with a long-rumored variant of the NSX that has been going about way before the revival of the current supercar.

Called the ‘baby NSX’, its rumors have resurfaced and the word now is that it is going to be a lightweight Mazda MX-5 Miata challenger derived from the NSX that succeeds the Honda S2000.

The EV Concept won’t be the only NSX making the 12.4-mile climb into the clouds. Two brothers who work in the Honda engineering department—James and Nick Robinson—will race a pair of lightly modified NSX production cars in the hill-climb’s two Time Attack classes (photo below). Last year, Acura brought a pre-production NSX that paced the race, but didn’t compete.

A mad mechanic in Australia has created a V-12 engine using a pair of LS1 V-8s. The V-12 delivers over 700 horsepower and is destined for a Camaro here in the States.
