The core changes are in the engine, which has been built up with hand-selected parts. Components including the flywheel, connecting rods and pistons have been specially chosen from the standard production batches.

The claim is that these 2.0-litre units will “rev even more freely, delivering extraordinary response and acceleration”. The special model gets 165bhp, while the six-speed auto version gets 156bhp
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. The car comes in one colour, Soul Red metallic, with contrasting black A-pillars.
