Brodie Brittain Racing, or only BBR has recently unveiled the MX-5 GT270, a car that is based on the 2013 MX-5 Sport Tech Roadster Coupe .
BBR mainly tried to boost GT270`s performance. Thus, a turbocharger, an intercooler, an upgraded exhaust manifold, and an ECU calibration was adjusted. So now, the engine produces powerful 268 horsepower at 7,350 rpm, and that is a 110-horsepower more than the standard 2.0-liter Sport Tech model.
Torque bumped as well to 200 pound-feet, which is an 88 pound-feet boost — from 3,000 rpm to 7,000 rpm. Now, the MX-5 can drive from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 150 mph.
There are three driving modes offered by in the ECU tune. In Mode One, there is quicker response from the throttle on the road; Mode Two has a launch-control system set at 3,800 rpm, full-throttle gearshifts and automatic throttle lip; Mode Three is an economy mode; and the additional Mode Four speeds the engine to 3,500 rpm.
An Exedy clutch has been added to update driveline.
There will be only 100 units produced from the BBR MX-5 GT270. Its starting price is £29,995 -- or around $48,500 at the current exchange rates.
