Usually, when someone decides to apply a cartoon theme to their car, the result is not so great as it is difficult not to enter the kitsch area. Today, we are going to show you a Ninja Turtle edition (this is how the owner calls it) 1990 Mazda Miata, a vehicle featured on

However, when it comes to performance, this is no cartoon character, as it has been fitted with certain go-fast parts. We don't know if this is Rafael, Donatello, Michelangelo or Leonardo, but let's get to the point.

We’ll start with the driveline modifcaitions, which include a Magnaflow high-flow catalytic converter, a RB Elbow air intake, a Fidanza Flywheel, an Exedy Stage 1 clutch and a Steeda Short Shifter.

The owner of the vehicle wanted to build on the MX-5’s reputation of a great turn-tackler, so it decided to play with the suspension. The vehicle was more than happy when it found about that it could run free through the bends and immediately said “yes”. Thus, the car was fitted with handling goodies such as RB sway bars (these were installed on both axles), NB tophats, and FatCat Motorsports bumpstops.

A special attention was paid to the rims, as these influence both the handling (the driver car push the car through the corners with more confidence now) and the aspect (the design of the wheels really fits the overall package). The vehicle rides on 15x8-inch rims that come with a matte red finish with polished lips and are wrapped in 195/45 tires.
