So let’s take a look at one Limited Edition MX5 which is particularly sought after, the MX5 Niseko, which was released in January 2008 and named after Japan’s most prestigious Skiing resort.

Both the entry-level 1.8i Niseko soft-top (126bhp, five-speed) and the 2.0i roadster coupe (160bhp, six-speed) were available in a new bespoke colour “Icy Blue” metallic, as well as “Sunlight Silver” metallic at no additional charge. The Niseko offered up to £2,000 worth of additional and exclusive extras over and above the standard models.
Special exterior features of the Mazda MX-5 Niseko included unique design 17-inch alloy wheels, unique body colour finish for the style bar trim, front fog lamps, Chrome Pack (door handles and headlamp bezels, and surrounds for the side-repeaters, front grille and fog lamps) and special edition ‘Niseko’ badging on each front wing, plus a unique dark
brown premium cloth for the fabric roof.

Inside, both Niseko models featured unique dark brown heated leather seats with co-ordinated door trim and icy blue stitching, plus dark brown leather steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake. They were also equipped with a dark-silver dash panel, stainless-steel scuff plates and Niseko-branded luxury interior mats, with a chrome suspension strut tower bracing bar beneath the bonnet.
Just 240 examples of the Mazda MX5 1.8i Niseko soft-top and 560 units of the MX5 2.0i Niseko roadster coupe were made available in the UK. Today the cars are very hard to find so keep an eye out for one!
