Mazda are celebrating the MX-5’s quarter-century with a 2.0litre 25th Anniversary Limited Edition.
On sale from August 1, just 750 examples will be available to UK customers, featuring bespoke interior and exterior design and numbered external badging.
It will be unveiled at next week’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The vehicle is based on the MX-5 Roadster Coupe 2.0litre Sport Tech Nav, but adds several unique features.
These include a Soul Red Metallic paint finish, Brilliant Black door mirrors, 17inch Dark Gunmetal alloy wheels, a rear diffuser and chrome exhaust trim.
Inside, the edition boasts heated, Light Stone leather-trimmed upholstery which incorporates contrasting red stitching to the seats, steering wheel, gearshift and handbrake lever, and 25th Anniversary logo-embossed headrests.
A bespoke, hand-painted Dark Red dashboard decoration panel, Brilliant Black roll-over bar covers, alloy pedal set and 25th Anniversary stainless steel scuff plates are also included.
Also specific to the UK 25th Anniversary Limited Edition MX-5 is a 6.1inch touchscreen Mazda Navigation System.
Exclusively engineered for Mazda by Alpine, the fully-integrated, high-resolution system features 46 European country maps, 29 different languages, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, and an integrated CD, radio and DVD player with a 50:50 split screen.
Jeremy Thomson, Managing Director of Mazda UK, said: “To date, three generations of Mazda MX-5 have witnessed the release of over 43 Special Edition models in the UK since 1990.
“None, however, could be more significant to us than this 25th Anniversary Limited Edition, which marks such an important milestone for a car that single-handedly reintroduced the world to the pleasures of exhilarating and affordable open-topped motoring.”Manufacturer Profile Latest Car News
