300-unit special edition is based on Sport Nav trim and gets a red soft-top roof and contrasting interior upholstery

A new UK-only special-edition Mazda MX-5, the Z-Sport, has been revealed.

On the outside, the Z-Sport gets a red soft-top roof, while inside, its seats are finished in beige leather. 

BBS wheels are also added, as with previous MX-5 special editions. The Z-Sport is finished in Machine Grey paint, which was until now exclusive to the hard-top MX-5 RF.

Inside, a numbered plaque on the dashboard commemorates the car’s limited number, and there are also bespoke floor mats. The car follows from the previous-generation Z-Sport, which was also limited edition.

The Z-Sport is limited to 300 units. It's based on Sport Nav trim and costs £25,595, £1230 more than the Sport Nav. Deliveries start in March 2018.

Under the bonnet, the MX-5's 2.0-litre, 158bhp petrol engine remains unchanged, although being based on the Sport Nav model means the Z-Sport gets Bilstein dampers, a strut brace and a limited slip differential. 

Mazda confirmed that this is the first time a different-coloured roof will be available for the latest MX-5, but it couldn’t detail when the next opportunity will be.
