Top Gear Miata MX-5 vs a Greyhound Dog

Hammond of Top Gear races the new MX-5 Miata and Greyhound Dog on the Dog's track.

Can a Greyhound beat a car? The car in this instance being the new Mazda MX5 and the greyhound being a £25,000 animal called 'Mamma Tina'. The dog has a top speed of some 45 miles an hour and can get there in just six strides, which is simply remarkable. The MX5, is also remarkable, offering great value for money, fantastic handling and brilliant fun.

No matter how good the MX5 is though, it couldn't beat the dog which had fire in its belly and far better grip on the corners. That's not to say the MX5 isn't superb though. Because it is. And let's face it, you can't ride a greyhound to work in the mornings.
