Two new Mazda MX-5 tuning packages launched by BBR

The BBR kits are available for Mazda’s latest 2.0-litre Skyactiv-G engine, with the most aggressive offering a maximum of 221bhp

BBR Mazda MX-5

Following the success of its 2016 MX-5 tuning kits, the British tuning company BBR has launched a pair of new performance packages for the 2019 Mazda MX-5. Called the Super 200 and the Super 220, the kits include a range of mechanical and software upgrades capable of extracting up to 221bhp from the car’s 2.0-litre four-cylinder Skyactiv-G engine.

BBR’s Super 200 package includes a four-into-one stainless steel exhaust manifold, a cold air intake system, a K&N high flow air filter and an engine management system remap. It provides the Mazda MX-5 with 202bhp and 224Nm of torque, or 18bhp and 14Nm more than the engine’s standard tune.

The Super 200 package is available as a “drive-in, drive-out” conversion (which includes a dyno test for verification) at the BBR’s Brackley headquarters. Prices for the service start from £1,445 excluding VAT, although a discount is available for customers wishing to install it themselves bringing the cost down to £1,245.

BBR also offers a more potent tuning kit, called the Super 220. It adds to the Super 200 package, with a set of re-profiled camshafts and uprated valve springs and retainers. It provides an extra 36bhp and 15Nm over the MX-5’s standard tune, with figures of 221bhp and 225Nm of torque.

Like the firm’s lesser-powered tune, the Super 220 package can be installed in a day and comes with a dyno test for validation. It’s priced at £2,895 to have the package fitted by the BBR team, while a self-install package is also available for £2,235. Both prices exclude VAT.

The tuning firm also offers a range of brake and chassis upgrades for the new Mazda MX-5, including a set of own-brand high-performance springs and dampers (£695), a set of Ohlins adjustable coilovers (£1,695), six-piston calipers (£895) and a pair of Eibach anti roll bars (£312.25). All prices exclude VAT and fitting costs.
