Long Term Report: We say goodbye to our beloved Mazda MX-5 RF

Ryan Hirons

After 12 months and enough miles to drive it from our Gosport HQ to its Hiroshima factory and back, then back to Japan again, it was at last time to say goodbye to our Mazda MX-5 RF long-termer.

It's hard to become too attached to cars in this job. Most come and go within a week, and those that spend a little more time with us still don't quite leave a long-lasting effect. VN66 ZHZ – for me at least – broke that trend.
