Mazda is saying goodbye to its 16-year-old MX-5 with an aptly named special edition. The MX-5 Icon is available now in both 108bhp 1.6i and 144bhp 1.8i guises and, in typical run-out tradition, it’s been dressed up to impress.

Mazda has applied black leather to the Icon’s heated seats, steering wheel, gearknob and handbrake – stitched in orange – and has thrown in a wind deflector and a stereo upgrade. Front fog lamps and steel scuff plates also set the special roadster apart outwardly, but not as noticeably as the Chilli Orange mica paintwork unique to it. Black mica, Titanium Grey and Sunlight Silver metallic finishes are also available.

Prices for the MX-5 Icon range from £16,600 for the 1.6-litre model to £17,100 for the 1.8, and Mazda will also include £500-worth of accessories for free.
