This stylish new Mazda MX-5 Z-Sport Edition with a cherry fabric top is only available in the UK

Article by Christian A., on December 11, 2017

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!

Press Release

New limited edition Mazda MX-5 Z-Sport on sale from 1st March 2018

Mazda will bring a burst of colour to the MX-5 range next spring with the launch of the new Z-Sport special edition. On sale from the 1st March, this exclusive model will stand-out thanks to its deep cherry red fabric hood, 17-inch black BBS wheels, and free-of-charge Machine Grey Metallic paint.

Inside, the stand-out feel continues with Sand Leather seats, plus Z-Sport floor mats and scuff plates. While to further highlight its uniqueness, each car comes with an individually numbered Z-Sport plaque on the dash. Exclusive to the UK and limited to just 300 cars, thanks to being based on the 2.0-litre 160ps Sport Nav, the £25,595 Z-Sport features a limited slip differential, Bilstein dampers and a strut brace to ensure it has the dynamic excellence to match its sporty exterior looks.

With the distinctive look you’d expect of an MX-5 special model, the Z-Sport continues the trend of offering sports car customers a striking and exclusive car at an affordable price. The second MX-5 to wear the Z-Sport badge, the latest car revisits a name last used on the third-generation MX-5 in 2007. A 2.0-litre model with 17-inch BBS wheels, Stone Leather seats and Radiant Ebony Mica paint, the last Z-Sport’s cabin featured brushed aluminium dash inserts, alloy pedals and coordinated stitching on the steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake. With just 400 examples sold, the 2007 Z-Sport shared the exclusivity of next year’s new Z-Sport MX-5.

Representing the first chance to buy a current-generation MX-5 convertible with an alternatively coloured fabric roof, the Z-Sport provides customers with exterior differentiation through its unique colour hood. Commenting on the launch of the new MX-5 Z-Sport, Jeremy Thomson, Managing Director Mazda Motors UK said, “the MX-5’s new cherry coloured roof was shown for the first time in public at the recent Tokyo Motor Show where it received a very positive reception. I’m delighted that we can bring it to UK MX-5 buyers as part of the exciting Z-Sport limited edition model.”

Adding, “We’ve had a long tradition of producing distinctive limited edition MX-5s that allow customers to drive a sports car with stand-out looks and enhanced equipment, and the new Z-Sport is one of the best yet. The stunning combination of the cherry red roof and Machine Grey Metallic paint make this one of the most exclusive looking MX-5s we’ve ever offered and I’m sure it will be a very popular choice when it arrives in dealerships next March.”
