Set to be offered as an aftermarket conversion, the MX-5 GT will feature a sport-tuned suspension and revised styling that closely matches the concept. The car's 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine will also be outfitted with an optimized ECU and a sports exhaust system. Thanks to these modifications it will produce 203 bhp (151 kW).

Auto Express says the MX-5 GT will cost less than £30,000 ($48,440 / €35,450) and come with a three-year warranty.
