The Tipo184 Starter Kit Will Turn A Mazda Miata Into A Classic F1 Racer

The Mazda Miata MX-5 has long been lauded as one of the most fun-to-drive cars around, but not everyone is a fan of the roadster’s modern basic styling. Enter the new Tipo184 Starter Kit, which converts a Miata donor car into an Alfa Romeo 158 homage.

The kit began life as a project by British automotive TV personality Ant Anstead and is now available for public purchase. Using an MX-5 Mk2 as a base, the kit converts the car into a replica of the legendary F1 racer that won the first-ever World Championship Grand Prix at Silverstone in 1950. The Tipo184 Starter Kit includes a bespoke chassis and body panels, exhaust system, driveshaft, and more. Priced just south of twelve grand, this collection is called a starter kit for a reason, as you’ll still need to purchase the seat, wheels, and several other parts. Tipo184 offers these parts piecemeal, or you can purchase everything together with the Starter Kit for around $20,500 before taxes and shipping. That’s not including the Miata, which you’ll need to supply on your own. But hey, it’s not like finding one of the world’s all-time best-selling sports cars is difficult.

Purchase: $11,680+
