As one of the most anticipated car of this year, the new Mazda MX-5 already has a long preorder list. The first cars have started to arrive in America with UK cars soon to follow. Many people have been eagerly awaiting their turn to pick up their new pride and joy, but disaster struck an American gentleman shortly after driving off of the forecourt.
We sadly report that the first crash involving a new fourth generation Mazda MX-5 has taken place. A recent sunny Florida day saw a “proud us punch” man collect his new car only to be ploughed into just down the road by a Ford F150 pickup truck. Imagine that for a moment… You have been waiting months for your new car to arrive, you even have one of the very first in the country, only to have it curly taken from you. It was 1 of just 1,000 launch edition cars. The F150 rear-ended this little MX-5 which then hit the car ahead causing serious damage. It turns out the the Ford driver was under the influence of illegal substances. Luckily nobody was seriously hurt.
There is a silver lining to this story. Mazda have decided that this poor man deserves to enjoy his MX-5 and so will deliver him a new one next month.
