Continuing Mazda’s long tradition of special edition MX-5s, the all-new Mazda MX-5 Sport Recaro is the first Limited Edition version of the all-new fourth-generation MX-5 offered in the UK. Its exclusivity of 600 is marked out by an individually numbered badge. The Limited Edition Mazda MX-5 Sport Recaro is a UK only car based on the 2.0-litre Sport Nav.
The lightest MX-5 since the iconic original, the all-new Mazda MX-5 is shorter, lower and wider than the outgoing car, with the smallest overhangs and lowest center of gravity yet. These dynamic proportions combined with Mazda’s KODO: Soul of Motion design philosophy ensures that the all-new Mazda MX-5’s styling reflects its focus on driving pleasure.
The Sport Recaro builds on these looks with a Brilliant Black Sports Aero kit that includes a rear spoiler and skirts all around the car. Piano Black door mirrors and 17-inch Diamond Cut alloy wheels with an engraved MX-5 logo complete the exterior appearance.
Inside, the MX-5 cabin gains an Alcantara dashboard panel, alloy pedals and unique floor mats. The standard Recaro seats feature Alcantara upholstery on the seat cushion and seat back, while red seat piping compliments the red stitching found on the dash, handbrake and gear lever. Designed to deliver outstanding lumbar and lateral support, the heated Recaro seats are perfectly aligned with the Jinba Ittai concept of car and driver as one that defines the Mazda MX-5.
In line with the 2.0-litre Sport Nav, the Sport Recaro benefits from a dynamic set-up that includes Sports suspension featuring Bilstein dampers, a limited slip differential and strut tower bar. Across the range, the all-new Mazda MX-5 was conceived and developed under the concept of “innovate in order to preserve”. This engineering philosophy has allowed Mazda to maintain the agility, fun and engagement that has always defined the MX-5 while at the same time meeting ever-increasing safety and efficiency requirements, alongside improved refinement.
