New Photos of Mazda MX-5 20th Anniversary Limited Edition

Together with UK pricing, Mazda published a new set of photographs of its limited edition MX-5 that was created to celebrate the popular roadster's 20th birthday. Starting from £16,850 on-the-road, the commemorative model is based on the 1.8-liter SE version, and even though it features 10 additional items of equipment worth over £650, it's priced just £55 more than the standard SE.

Special features include the ten-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels with a unique silver finish, front fog lights, chrome trims around the grille, headlamps and fog lights, body-coloured roll bars and a supporting strut brace.

Inside, the limited run MX-5 get stainless steel scuff plate features a unique '20th Anniversary' logo and limited edition number, premium '20th Anniversary' branded floor mats, a body-coloured front dashboard, aluminium pedal set, and manual air-conditioning.

The commemorative model will be available in a choice of three colors - True Red and for the first time in the UK, Crystal White Pearlescent and Aurora Blue Mica, each priced at £395.

And if you're wondering, Mazda did not say if it will offer the stripes and stickers featured on the white MX-5 in the press photos.

In terms of performance, 126HP 1.8-liter engine that's hooked up to a five-speed manual gearbox propels the MX-5 from standstill 62mph (100km/h) in 9.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 121mph or 195 km/h, while returning a combined fuel economy of 40.4 mpg UK.
