Mazda has revealed two special edition Mazda MX-5 Kuro models, which go on sale at the beginning of July priced from £18,495.
The MX-5 Kuro models (meaning black), are available in 124bhp 1.8-litre soft-top and 158bhp 2.0-litre roadster coupe guise.
Based on MX-5 SE and Sport Tech models (the current MX-5 range), additional kit comprises a large sports exhaust, rear diffuser and black accents to the car’s front grille surround and fog light housings. ‘Kuro Edition’ badging is another feature.
Each car is finished with a black roof, black door mirrors and the choice of three body colours, including Velocity Red Mica, Crystal White Pearlescent and Brilliant Black.
In each model’s cabin, the heated seats are finished in black and stone-coloured leather, with stone leather used for the door inserts. Contrasting red stitching is used in both cases.
The entry-level MX-5 Kuro in 1.8-litre flavour is limited to 200 units in the UK, with 400 units made available for the roadster coupe. Above standard-spec cars customers pay a premium of £500 for each Kuro variant.
This weekend, Mazda will showcase its new MX-5 GT concept at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Powered by a highly tuned version of Mazda’s 2.0-litre unit, the concept produces 205bhp. It will be driven up Goodwood's infamous hill circuit to demonstrate its performance potential.
