THE BOOK OF THE MAZDA MX-5 MIATA
THE ‘MK2’ NB-SERIES 1997–2004
Author: Brian Long Publisher: Veloce Publishing Price: £30.00
Brian Long’s earlier book on the first three generations of MX-5 is regarded by many as the bible of the world’s favourite sports car: packed with technical information, insider insights, and even marketing material from the car’s various global markets, it has become your first port of call in understanding the MX-5’S intriguing back story.
Now Long and Veloce have split the mk2 free of the mk1 and mk3 and devoted 138 pages exclusively to the tale of one of the hardest follow-up acts in automotive history. The text is pretty much the same, but the design now has space to breathe and the pictures are used larger. If your focus is purely the mk2 and you want an in-depth reference to its birth and evolution, then it deserves a space on your bookshelf.
