The Most Expensive MX5 Ever.

There are only 82 examples of this lovely MX5 Jasper Conran LE in Platinum remaining. The car was based on a standard model 1.8iS MX5 and only 500 units were built,100 in Platinum Silver and 400 in Classic Black. The silver model, the most expensive MX5 ever made, would cost you an astonishing £24,000.00 to buy new in 2000,while the slightly cheaper black version was priced at £21,000.00.
The exterior boasted specially made 15″ BBS alloy wheels with a colour coded exhaust trim and exterior badges,whilst the interior was trimmed with soft Connolly hide leather as used in the Rolls Royce and Ferrari. The silver models had red upholstery with a matching leather hood cover and red Wilton carpets. The black model had black upholstery with matching leather hood cover and black Wilton carpets.

Further enhancements included an aluminium effect centre console, dial fascia and inner door handles complimented with a two-tone aluminium and leather steering wheel and aluminium effect gear knob and hand-brake lever. In-car entertainment was provided by a Sony single CD player with a Mini Disc Changer. To download the Jasper Conran LE brochure free, click on the badge:

How common or how rare is the car you drive? You can find out how many cars of any make and model are running on Britain’s roads at a new Web site cooked up by ex-BAE Systems software engineer Olly Smith with ingredients from the Department For Transport and the DVLA. The site is easy to use – ­ simply enter the make and model of the car you own to see detailed stats, including the number licensed every year from 1994 to the present day. Your vehicle could be rarer, and potentially more valuable, than you think. For instance, the owner offering his 2002 MG ZT V6 160 on gumtree.com at time of writing probably doesn’t know that it’s the last one of its kind still running in the UK.
