After we saw the 900,000th Mazda MX-5 Miata being produced, the Japanese manufacturer introduced today at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show the 2011 MX-5 Miata Special Edition, a limited-run model of only 750 units. This new edition comes with special interior touches such as gray door trim and heated leather seats with gray stitching, a black leather-wrapped parking brake and steering wheel with contrasting gray stitching.
Furthermore, the interior of the car features chrome treatments to the air vents and instrument cluster as well as aluminum pedals (6MT only). The bad news is that the 2011 MX-5 Miata Special Edition will be available only in two colors, Sparkling Black Mica or Dolphin Gray Mica.
The design of this special edition will be completed by the 17-inch Bright Finish aluminum alloy wheels. As expected, the 2011 MX-5 Miata Special Edition will be available in the fully-equipped Grand Touring trim level but only with the easy-to-use Power Retractable Hard Top (PRHT).
Furthermore, the Special Edition comes as standard with the Premium Package which includes features such as Bluetooth hands-free phone system, SIRIUS Satellite Radio with a six-month complimentary subscription, Xenon headlights, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) with a Traction Control System (TCS), an anti-theft alarm and the Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry and Start System.
Moreover, the Suspension Package is also offered as standard on the Special Edition and includes Bilstein shocks, a limited slip differential (LSD) and a sport-tuned suspension.
Under the hood, we find the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine capable to deliver 167-horsepower and140 lb-ft of torque with the six-speed manual transmission and 158 hp with the six-speed automatic transmission. The 2011 MX-5 Miata Special Edition starts at $30,925 for the manual transmission, and $31,525 when equipped with the six-speed Sport AT automatic.
