2011 Mazda MX-5 Special Edition

2011 Mazda MX-5 Special Edition

Mazda's MX-5 Miata recently got some (rare) bad press from EVO's Chris Harris, but that's not nearly enough to put a crimp in the 900,000-unit model run's style. To celebrate the milestone delivery reached earlier this month, a new Special Edition of the car is on show in Chicago this week.

Only 750 of the 2011 MX-5 Miata Special Edition cars will be built. Each features exclusive interior accents, including gray door trim and heated leather seats with gray stitching, a black leather-wrapped parking brake and steering wheel (both with more contrasting grey stitching), chrome accents on the vents and instruments, and aluminum pedals on six-speed manual models. The exterior gets a choice of two colors new to the MX-5: Sparkling Black Mica or Dolphin Gray Mica, plus 17-inch bright-finish alloy wheels.

Beyond the aesthetics, the MX-5 Special Edition is all standard MX-5: 167-horsepower, 140-pound-feet of torque, even weight distribution, and balanced handling. It looks like the Special Edition will also be available as either a soft-top or PRHT (power retractable hard top).

Pricing for the MX-5 Special Edition starts at $30,925 for the manual and $31,525 for the automatic. Mazda didn't announce a for-sale or on-order date, so it's presumably available now, if you've got the motivation and the cash on hand.
