ND Recaro

Mazda has added a new limited edition MX5 to its model line-up. Called the Sport Recaro, it tops the current MX5 range and mixes the technical setup of an MX5 Sport Nav with a higher-specced interior and bespoke body trim.

Top of the list of new additions is a sports aero kit. This comprises a new rear spoiler, front and rear lips and side skirts – all painted in black. The door mirrors are also finished in piano black, and two-tone 17-inch diamond cut alloy wheels have an engraved MX5 logo. The limited edition model is also available in just two exterior colours – Soul Red Metallic or Ceramic Metallic.

Inside, heated Recaro seats are clad in Alcantara, as are sections of the dashboard. Alloy pedals, bespoke floor mats and contrasting red stitching complete the Sport Recaro’s bespoke cabin.

Recaro Seats

The Sport Recaro builds on the specs list of the Sport Nav on which it is based, and so comes with a long list of features: LED headlights, a leather steering wheel, climate-control, a DAB radio with Bluetooth connectivity, sat-nav, rain sensing wipers, keyless enty, a top-spec Bose sound-system, cruise control and Mazda’s MZD-Connect infotainment system are all included.

The drivetrain, however, is completely unchanged from the Sport Nav, meaning it’s powered by Mazda’s 2-litre SkyActiv-G engine that produces 158bhp and 147lb ft of torque. The car is capable of accelerating from 0 to 62mph in 7.3 seconds, and its also sharper than the base model thanks to Bilstein dampers. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels through a limited slip diff and a strut tower bar is fitted as standard – just like the Sport Nav.

The price for all this? £24,295, which is exactly £1000 more than the 2-litre Sport Nav. And production numbers for the Sport Recaro are limited to just 600 units. To see the Sport Recaro brochure, click on the logo below:
