Video: Mazda MX-5 turbo vs Ford Focus ST

Can the BBR-tuned Mazda MX-5 Turbo overhaul the mighty Ford Focus ST? Mark Tisshaw takes to Cadwell Park to find out.

The Mazda MX-5 is one of our favourite affordable sports cars, but compared with the current crop of high-performance cars, it is beginning to feel a little outgunned. With that in mind, Northampton-based BBR has developed a turbo kit boosting power to 285bhp – slightly more than the Ford Focus ST. Mark Tisshaw takes the BBR-tuned MX-5 and the Ford Focus ST to Cadwell Park to see if the Mazda’s extra grunt can overhaul the brawny Ford.
