Mazda has released new pictures of its limited edition MX-5, commemorating 20 years of the iconic sports car.

The Mazda MX-5 20th Anniversary Limited Edition will only be available in Europe and will reach UK showrooms on 1 March. Production will be limited to just 2000 units and each example will be individually numbered on the stainless steel scuff plate. Around 600 units have been allocated to the UK.

The model is based on the 1.8-litre SE MX-5 and is available in either True Red, Crystal White Pearl or Aurora Blue.

Features unique to the model include new 17-inch alloys and 20th Anniversary badging. Chrome has been used on the front grille, door handles and headlight surrounds. Changes under the skin include the addition of a front suspension bracing bar.

The 20th Anniversary Limited Edition will be priced from £16,850 and will be on display at next month’s Geneva motor show, where it will be unveiled alongside a new Mazda 5 and a Mazda 6 facelift.

Our Verdict

Mazda MX-5

The Mazda MX-5 is still great fun, and more grown up in its third (NC) generation. For pure driving fun, little else gets close

my guess would be because they actually turned it into its worst nightmare.. a hairstylists car.. it's not pure anymore and that is why u don't see many of them.. let's hope Mazda can find its way again with the next generation that's supposed to be back to no nonsense lightweight underpowered rwd fun

This is quite pathetic compared to the JDM mx-5 20th anniversary with it's two-tone red leather & black alcantara recaros. Many people complain about the mx-5 getting too big and too heavy but it's still a blast to drive, especially the current model with its revised suspension settings and tuned engine. Fun factor is way off the scale, take a test drive if you haven't done so, best time I've ever had, way more fun than many more expensive cars (been there, done that) and all that within speed limits, well done Mazda!
