Special-edition Mazda MX-5 is available in one body colour, metallic red
750 of the 1000 anniversary edition Maxda MX-5s will be sold in the UK
The UK will receive 750 of the 1000 individually numbered examples of the anniversary model, which is based around the top Sport Tech Nav trim level of the 2.0-litre roadster coupé. Car number one in the production run is currently on show at Goodwood, alongside a heritage display looking back on the MX-5, which was first introduced in 1989.
The new special edition boasts exterior and interior features unavailable on any other Mazda MX-5. Inside, the latest MX-5 has off-white leather seats – with a 25th Anniversary logo and stitching – and door trims, special stainless kickplates, aluminum pedals, 17-inch gunmetal grey alloy wheels and Bilstein dampers on the manual-transmission version. Specific to the UK 25th anniversary car is a 6.1-inch touchscreen navigation system.
The car comes in one colour, metallic red, with contrasting black A-pillars and door mirrors. Its 2.0-litre, 16-valve, 158bhp powerplant is married to a short-throw six-speed manual transmission. It can sprint from 0-62mph in 7.9sec and goes on to a top speed of 136mph.
The price of the anniversary edition is £22,995.
