Jota has officially unveiled their Mazda MX-5 GT. It is inspired by the Mazda MX-5 GT concept which debuted at the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Jota has officially unveiled their Mazda MX-5 GT. Following a year of development and testing Mazda handed over the project in its entirety to the Le Mans specialist race team.

Drawing inspiration from the concept that debuted at the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed, the MX-5 GT is based on the MX-5 Roadster Coupe Sport Tech and features an upgraded 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 203 bhp (151 kW). This enables the model to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 6.4 seconds and hit a limited top speed of 140 mph (225 km/h).

The car has also been equipped with a brilliant black roof, a carbon fiber rear diffuser and anthracite alloy wheels.  There's also Bilstein dampers and leather Recaro seats. Options include a carbon fiber front splitter, a carbon fiber rear spoiler and an Öhlins suspension.

The MX-5 GT is hand-finished to order at Jota and available for sale exclusively from Lodge Garage Mazda in Aylesbury, UK. Pricing starts at £29,995 ($48,430 / €35,430).
