Self Build MX-5 based  Raptor Kits


Why Use a Mazda MX5 as a Donor Vehicle?

The MX5 was always a light and nimble affordible sports cars.   It's rear wheel drive configuration makes it ideal to use in our Raptor sports cars. 

The used car market for the MX5 and Miata (imported version) is flooded with various specs to suit any budget.   MOT failures or cars that are unwanted are now available to buy for less than £600 making them a genuinely affordable donor option.  

Which MX5 Parts can I use to build my SB5  Raptor Kit?

The Raptor has been designed in such a way that nearly 90% of the MX5 parts from the donor vehicle can be recycled and bolted straight on to the Raptor chassis.    These include the following:-


Engine and Engine management system

Engine loom


Steering assembly

Rear Differential and driveshafts

Front and rear suspension hub & Brakes

Fuel pump

handbrake assembly 

Switch gear 

Interior Fixings


Its a blank canvas.  Endless options available , be creative !
