beschrijving / flaptekst:
Translated from Japanese, here is the extraordinary account of how the world’s most popular sportscar came into being.

This is the story of how a team of dedicated engineers and designers boldly conceived the idea of a totally new lightweight sportscar at a time when the traditional open roadster seemed doomed to extinction. Despite considerable opposition, the group tenaciously defended its concept of a car which would offer the driver the same unity as that found between a horse and its rider.

Despite the odds, the team succeeded brilliantly.

Here is the fascinating, and very often surprising, inside story of the MX-5 Miata’s conception, design and production as told by the individual members of the team.
