I finally have a Miata, which I picked up on Saturday. Despite the package being in terrible shape, all this Johnny Lightning needed was a quick wipe-down.
I believe this casting is based on the 2000 Special Edition version in Mahogany Mica.
All of the exterior details are quite nice. It even has the badges in the front and back (which are hard to see).
The color may be a bit brighter than the actual car, however. It is very metallic though.
The interior is very detailed, too.
The Special Edition had a wood Nardi steering wheel, shift knob, and hand brake handle. This casting does not.
Overall, it’s a very nice casting.
