The Japanese-based Mazda carmaker has to be very proud of the MX-5`s success on the United States market and as a tribute, the company decided to release a special version, called the MX-5 RF Launch Edition, built in a limited 1,000 vehicles.
Robert Davis, CEO at MNAO, US Operations has big words to describe this standout version of the already famous Mazda MX-5.
“MX-5 has enjoyed 27 years of being the world’s best-selling roadster, being named 2016 World Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year and receiving hundreds, if not thousands, of other accolades.
Rarely does any automaker have a vehicle that garners the sort of loyalty and enthusiasm MX-5 generates—something we don’t take lightly. MX-5 RF is the next chapter of this storied model line, and we can’t think of a better way to give back than to first offer this bespoke Launch Edition to those who have stuck with us, believing in our mission to deliver the best-driving vehicles on the road,” Davis also concluded.
To get this exclusive ride, you should be part of an exclusive group of customers who already have a background concerning Mazda products. But you won`t be dissapointed, as you will get a special design both outside as well as inside.
The car`s main highlights will be at the interior, the cabin boasting with Auburn Nappa leather and badging, while the exterior is all wrapped in Machine Gray Metallic paintjob, with a blacked-put roof. The details concerning the powertrain under the hood are not released at the moment, but what we do know is that the special version will be offered with a SKYACTIV-MT six-speed manual or an optional six-speed automatic transmission.
