Can you believe the legendary Mazda MX-5 has graced our roads for thirty years now? To celebrate its unprecedented success, Mazda has released a special edition 30th anniversary MX-5 model.
First introduced in 1989 at the Chicago motor show, it was fitting Mazda chose the same location to reveal their celebratory special edition MX-5 model.
The original MX-5 was a lightweight two-seater sports car with near-perfect 50:50 weight distribution, agile handling and a specially tuned engine. It was the perfect car for motoring enthusiasts who craved a modern-era roadster which evoked the traditional wind-in-the-hair driving of the classic British sports car.
The MX-5 has continued to deliver this class-leading performance ever since and is the go-to fun-to-drive roadster.
Distinctively different the special edition Mazda MX-5 is sure to be a hit with driving enthusiasts.
The exclusive Racing Orange colour, inspired by the 1989 MX-5 Club racer, has instant appeal. While marking the occasion, the front wing features a 30th-anniversary badge displaying the model’s serial number on the driver’s side.
The striking 17” ten-spoke aluminium Rays alloy wheels ensure a more dynamic stance. Plus in a first for any Mazda sold in the UK, the special edition model features 15” Brembo front brakes and smart body-coloured callipers. While to further increase its iconic handling it rides on sporty Bilstein dampers.
Under the bonnet is Mazda’s rapid 181bhp 2.0-litre Skyactiv-G petrol unit which is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox.
Inside the bespoke ambience continues with orange accents on the seats, door trim, dashboard, steering wheel, air vents and gear lever. While switching the standard dash trim for an Alcantara finish and the standard seats for sportier Recaro ones adds exclusivity to this special edition MX-5.
Equipment is extensive too, with a seven-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone monitoring as standard, as well as a premium Bose sound system.
Only 3,000 special edition 30th Anniversary Mazda MX-5 cars will be released, with the UK set to get just 550 of these - 370 soft-top and 180 RF hardtop models.
So you'll need to hurry and contact your nearest Stoneacre Mazda dealership to get your hands on one of the 550 available.
