Mazda MX-5: Miata vs. Ferrari F1 Car

If you ever wanted a side-by-side comparison of a street car, like a Miata vs. an F1 car like this plastic replica of a Ferrari Formula One car from a few years ago… here you have it!

It’s not always you get an opportunity to compare the two, the replicas usually grace dealership floors or various office buildings like the Ferrari North American headquarters in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey… but living in NJ I’d probably never actually drive my car into the showroom for comparison purposes so using the excuse of a Ferrari Challenge event at Lime Rock Park, we got a perfect setting before the loaded the car back on it’s transport to wherever it was going next…

As you can clearly tell from these low budget old iPhone photos, the F1 car is clearly much bigger than the MX-5… like much bigger! I’m kind of impressed though with the outcome of this little photo shoot because my car was covered in an inch of dust here.

I think this was the highlight of the event for me, where I spent the rest of the time eating yesterday’s cold chinese noodles and sipping on Dr. Pepper with some exotic labeling scheme going on…
