Among other things, the Mazda MX-5 Miata Roadster received four-wheel drive from a Subaru WRX sedan. The car still cannot move on its own, but we must admit that already at this stage, the resulting car looks very cool.

The Japanese roadster Mazda MX-5 Miata is a truly legendary sports car, which has repeatedly proved its excellence in many races around the world.

This particular version of the car, obviously, was not created in order to drive at high speeds on perfectly smooth roads – the destiny of this roadster is to overcome off-road conditions. In fact, we saw this particular car before, although then it had a matte body shade of pale green. He also had a supercharged Mazda engine that only transmitted power to the rear wheels. This time everything is a little different, everything is very different.

As part of this project, the Mazda MX-5 Miata roadster was “crossed” with a powerful Subaru WRX sedan. The resulting car can be called Mazdaru or Subariata, or, possibly, WRMX-5.

This video shows us the assembly of the main components of the car, starting with the elements under the hood, the brake system, wheels, body panels and even lamps. The interior is still completely “empty” and is 100 full of wires. It is inaudible that the car should be wound up – presumably, the new “heart” is still “not beating”. But there is no denying how cool this build now looks.

It is worth noting that the effort required to install a completely different engine in the Miata engine compartment is monumental, not to mention the complete transformation of the all-wheel drive system. We can’t wait to see how the resulting car drives off-road.
