Courtesy of Torque News: A long time Miata fan and owner weighs on the debate over which is the better track car, the Miata or the 124 Spider. The reason for the win is the biggest surprise.
This past week, Torque News had the opportunity to run the 2018 Fiat 124 Spider Abarth and the Mazda Miata RF back to back on the track at the beautiful Monticello Motor Club in New York State. MMC is one of the finest road courses in the Eastern United States and perfect for a comparison between these fun and capable track-worthy roadsters. Both were stick shifts and they even had similar paint. It was a fair fight and we aren’t going to be wishy-washy about which was more fun to drive on that given day.
