The Japanese people from Mazda decided to create a special edition of the current MX-5 Roadster Coupe. The new limited edition is called Karai and is specially designed for the German customers. According to the first details, Mazda plans to market 165 units of the new MX-5 Roadster Coupe Karai for Germany at a starting price of €30,000.
The new Karai edition, which is the Japanese for “sharp”, is designed by Mazda’s European Design department and features the exclusive Metal Green Metallic body paint. Other aesthetic features include a new set of 17-inch alloy wheels with low profile tires, side mirrors and fog lamps housing in glossy black finish but also some interior styling improvements.
Inside, Mazda fitted the MX-5 Roadster Coupe Karai edition with aluminum pedals, a new leather steering wheel with white stitching, glossy black interior trim and new Recaro sport seats with white stitching but also black leather and Alcantara. Opting for an optional sport package you will get iPod and USB connectivity but also a new set of floor mats in addition to the standard offering. Of course, being based on the MX-5 Roadster Coupe, the Japanese model comes with a retractable hardtop which also suffers some styling modifications.
Under the bonnet, power comes from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine able to produce 160 horsepower while a new exhaust and a revised suspension system are available at an extra cost. The new Mazda MX-5 Karai that is limited at 165 units will be available for order starting next month, as mentioned, only in Germany. According to the Japanese manufacturer, buying the new MX-5 Karai special edition will bring you a Sinn watch matching the car’s colors for no extra cost.
