The 2012 Mazda MX-5 Miata Special Edition was unveiled today at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show and the Japanese manufacturer also announced the price for this sporty convertible. The bad news is that this model will be produced in a limited edition of just 450 units, but the good news is that you can own one for $31,225 for the manual transmission and $31,675 for the model equipped with the six-speed automatic transmission.
For those who don’t know, the special edition MX-5 comes with striking black accents, including an all-new black-only Power Retractable Hard Top (PRHT), and will be available in two exclusive colors, Velocity Red and Crystal White Pearl.
Moreover, the special edition MX-5 also features 17-inch Black Gunmetal aluminum alloy wheels. Under the hood, we will find the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine delivering 167-horsepower, 140 lb-ft of torque when equipped with the six-speed manual transmission and 158 horsepower with the 6AT. The 2012 MX-5 Miata Special Edition is equipped with both the Premium and Suspension packages as standard.
The Premium Package includes Bluetooth hands-free phone, SIRIUS Satellite Radio with a four-month complimentary subscription, xenon headlights, an anti-theft alarm and the Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry System. The Suspension Package comes with Bilstein shocks, a limited slip differential (LSD) and a sport-tuned suspension.
