25th Anniversary Model Release Date

25th Anniversary Release

Mazda UK is delighted to announce the launch of the MX5 Roadster Coupe 2.0-litre 25th Anniversary Limited Edition, which goes on sale throughout the UK from 1 August. Just 1,000 individually numbered examples of the 25th Anniversary Limited Edition will be built. It is a testament to Britain’s enduring love affair with open-topped motoring that 750 of them will be made available to UK customers with number one being unveiled at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed on 26-29th June.

“To date, three generations of Mazda MX5 have witnessed the release of over 43 Special Edition models in the UK since 1990,” said Jeremy Thomson, Managing Director, Mazda UK. “None, however, could be more significant to us than this 25th Anniversary Limited Edition, which marks such an important milestone for a car that single-handedly reintroduced the world to the pleasures of exhilarating and affordable open-topped motoring.”

With a comprehensive equipment specification based on the Mazda MX5 Roadster Coupe 2.0 litre Sport Tech Nav, the 25th Anniversary Limited Edition boasts a wealth of additional exterior and interior features unavailable on any other Mazda MX-5. A model-unique, Soul Red Metallic paint finish is complemented by Brilliant Black door mirrors, A pillars and power-operated retractable hardtop roof. 17-inch Dark Gunmetal alloy wheels, a rear diffuser and chrome exhaust trim complete the bespoke exterior, with each example benefiting from unique, Limited Edition numbered external badging.

Anniversary Front

On board, the 25th Anniversary Limited Edition Mazda MX5 may be instantly identified by heated, Light Stone leather trimmed upholstery which incorporates contrasting red stitching to the seats, steering wheel, gearshift and handbrake lever, and 25th Anniversary logo-embossed headrests. This unique interior design is completed by a bespoke, hand-painted Dark Red dashboard decoration panel, Brilliant Black roll-over bar covers, alloy pedal set and 25th Anniversary stainless steel scuff plates.

Specific to the UK 25th Anniversary Limited Edition MX5 is a 6.1-inch touch screen Mazda Navigation System. Exclusively engineered for Mazda by Alpine, the fully integrated, high resolution system features 46 European country maps, 29 different languages, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, an integrated CD, radio and DVD player with a 50:50 split screen allowing for the simultaneous viewing of two input sources, and customisable user profile settings for each driver.

Anni Interior

Its 2.0-litre, 16v, 160ps powerplant allied to a slick, short-throw 6-speed manual transmission, the lightweight, compact, 25th Anniversary Limited Edition Mazda MX5 marries sub-8 second 0-62 mph acceleration and a 136mph top speed with perfect, 50:50 weight distribution and a low moment of inertia for outstanding agility and driving enjoyment.
