Tom's Crystal White Pearl NC2

Tom's car is a 2013 Kuro special edition finished in Crystal White Pearl. Like the other mica colours in the range, Crystal White features a mineral flake effect that creates impressive multi-coloured reflections under different lighting conditions.

Tom bought the Kuro new as a replacement for his older '98 NB model which eventually succumbed to a long battle with overheating issues. The new car is the 5-speed 1.8 soft top version with the open differential and the usual Kuro enhancements over the equivalent standard model.

The exterior features race inspired vinyl graphics, rear diffuser styling trim, large exhaust tailpipe trim, exclusive Kuro badges, black contrasting door mirrors, and 17" alloy wheels with a dark gunmetal paint finish. Inside there are light stone coloured heated leather seats with red trim, and matching door panel trim.

Tom's car can be seen attending the big MX-5 Owners Club events each year, as well as regular meets with the local Hertfordshire 5s group.
