You have to feel this car to believe it. If you need an abundance of straight-line acceleration, a Detroit V-8 may be a better choice, but when the road starts to twist, this car shines. No other vehicle has steering with as much feedback as a Miata. The gearshift feels like using a bolt-action rifle. The top is weathertight, reliability is excellent.
Nardi steering wheel, pedal placement, ergonomics, and the feel of drivetrain and chassis balance.
I'm drawing a blank. This car has corrected all of the foibles which plagued European sports cars for years.
