The current fourth-generation Mazda MX-5 is a World Car of the Year winner and anyone who takes one for a spin will struggle to argue with that accolade.
Now, a new limited-edition version has emerged, sticking with the roadster’s long-standing tradition for short-run variants.
Priced from £25,695 and on sale from May 28th, the MX-5 RF Sport Black delivers exclusivity and stand-out looks by adding a black rear spoiler, piano black door mirrors and gunmetal alloy wheels.
These classy details contrast with the ‘eternal blue mica’ paint job, while the cabin is spruced up with unique floor mats, scuff plates and badging to distinguish this stand-out MX-5.
The limited-edition hard-top builds on the SE-L Nav grade by chucking in standard leather seats, rain-sensing front wipers, rear parking sensors and automatic headlights.
Under the bonnet is a two-litre 158bhp petrol engine, capable of hitting 62mph from rest in 7.3 seconds with a top speed of 133mph, and, coupled with the standard limited slip differential, the Sport Black has the dynamic ability to justify its looks.
The bad news is that only 300 of these special edition RF Sport Black models will ever be built so you know what to do if you fancy grabbing one.
Another special edition MX-5 – the Z-Sport – entered Mazda showrooms at the start of March, adding a deep cherry red fabric hood, 17-inch black BBS wheels and ‘machine grey’ metallic paint.
Therefore, the impending arrival of the RF Sport Black means that “anyone wanting to drive a distinctive and stylish roadster can find what they need with one of our special edition models,” said Peter Allibon, Mazda Motors UK’s sales director.
Stephen Hasley, brand manager at Petrol News, added: “The MX-5 looks stunning with the original cloth roof or as the RF hard-top and this special edition adds an extra special touch.”
