'NB' Miata Is Big Power In A Small Package

Miata's are usually the butt of a lot of go-kart jokes. But this insanely and intricately modified 1999 Miata is closer to true sports roadster than it is a wimpy go-kart. The 1.8 liter engine has been amped up to 250 horsepower with a Rotrex C30-74 supercharger which pumps out nearly 200 foot-pounds of torque--a lot for a car under one-ton. Everything else, head-to-toe, on this car is different than when it rolled off the lot and that makes for one super-souped ride.
