The Mazda MX-5 R-Sport Special Edition arrives as a limited run MX-5 with 16″ RAYS wheels, Piano Black mirrors and grey fabric hood.
We haven’t had a Mazda MX-5 ‘Special Edition’ yet this year, but Covid-19 problems or not Mazda has now put that right with the arrival of the Mazda MX-5 R-Sport Special Edition in the UK, a run of just 150 cars to keep virtual showrooms interesting until they actually get unlocked.
Now in to its fourth decade on sale, the MX-5 is still an appealing little sports car, still faithful to its roots and still selling. And, as with all MX-5 specials, the MX-5 R-Sport Special Edition offers a range of appealing upgrades to get punters to open their wallets.
Based on the 1.5 litre sports, the R-Sport Special Edition gets its standard equipment – including Nav, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Cruise, Heated Seats and Climate – but adds in some specific Special Edition goodies.
They include Polymetal Grey metallic paint and a grey soft-top hood. gunmetal 16″ RAYS alloys, Piano Black Mirrors, grey fabric hood and burgundy Nappa leather seats with silver stitching.
