UK-only limited-Edition Mazda MX-5 Sport Recaro revealed
The limited-edition Mazda MX-5 Sport Recaro has been revealed in the UK with 600 cars available to order now… we don’t expect to see it in Australia.
UK CAR BUYERS are being offered a limited-edition Mazda MX-5 Sport Recaro variant which is available to order now and limited to just 600 units. Apparently created “with the discerning sports car fan in mind,” the MX-5 Sports Recaro edition adds an aero kit which includes a rear spoiler, front, side and rear skirts. Black side mirrors and 17-inch “Diamond Cut” alloy wheels round out the exterior additions.
Inside, the MX-5 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.
Based on the 2.0-litre Sport Nav variant, the Sport Recaro edition features LED headlights, a leather steering wheel, climate control air-conditioning, DAB radio, Integrated Bluetooth, integrated navigation system with 3-years free European map updates, rain sensing wipers, rear parking sensors, smart keyless entry, a premium Bose sound system and cruise control, plus Mazda’s MZD-Connect connectivity and infotainment system with 7-inch Colour touch-screen display and Multimedia Commander.
All of the cosmetic fripperies are nice, but they pale into insignificance next to the suspension tweaks. The Sport Recaro edition features Bilstein dampers, a limited-slip differential and strut tower bar. If Mazda Australia is considering its own special edition, then please borrow the suspension from this UK-only Mx-5 Sport Recaro.
Stay tuned for more MX-5 news. Practical Motoring will be attending the local launch of the 2.0-litre MX-5 later this month and will bring you a full write up.
