We have some good news for Mazda MX-5 Miata owners in the United Kingdom. The automaker recently announced an upgrade for the model which they call the Z-Sport model. Sales will begin on March 1 next year, but Mazda will limit production to only 300 units.
What’s included in the Z-Sport Edition, you ask? Well, it will give your good old Miata a beautiful Deep Cherry fabric roof, 17-inch black finished BBS wheels, and a Machine Grey Metallic body. The cabin will then be dressed in Sand coloured leather upholstery, and of course, the Z Sport logo will be present on the floor mats and door sills. To represent that the car is one of 300 examples only, it comes with a numbered plaque on the dashboard that displays its production number.
The Deep Cherry Red roof makes a beautiful contrast to the rest of the body’s darker paint and black wheels. The interior is a mix of two tone light beige and black that makes it look sexy. Lucky for UK customers, they get to own this stylish edition.
To make the Z-Sport edition even cooler, Mazda decided to pair it exclusively with the Sports Nav trim, with a 2.0 liter four-cylinder giving out 158 horsepower (118 kilowatts). These cars also get a limited slip differential, Bilstein supplied dampers, and a front strut brace. What do you have to say about the updated style of the Miata? Well, we totally love the Cherry Red roof accent.
Customers can get their hands on this Mazda MX-5 Z-Sport for 25,595 pounds (around $34,242). There isn’t actually that much of a difference compared to the standard 158 horsepower Sport Nav trim in terms of price. You can get the regular model in the UK for 24,195 pounds (or $32,371). That is quite a steal, isn’t it?
As mentioned earlier, the special edition Miata will exclusively be sold in the United Kingdom, so US fans will not be able to get their hands on one of these. However, this is not the only model that is not accessible in the U.S., other special models have been largely from their market too. On the other hand, Taiwanese buyers were able to get the roadster with some special stripes as part of the Gran Turismo Sport Super Bundle.
The bundle not only comes with a car, but also arrives with a brand new PS4 Pro, Playstation VR Goggles, 65-inch Sony Bravia 4K OLED television, Thrustmaster T-GT steering gaming wheel setup, and Apiga AP1 sim racing kit, for a truly realistic gaming experience. How cool is that? That is one hell of a package!
