The UK has received another special edition Mazda MX-5, with the carmaker releasing the MX-5 Miyaco soft top and coupe cabriolet.The bespoke models ride on 17 inch alloy rims, come with front fog lights, feature a front suspension strut brace, which offers improved steering response and are dressed in metallic paint.

The cars’ passengers are treated with unique Medici premium perforated black leather trim with a red undertray and stitching, custom badges, floor mats and automatic aircon.

"The name 'Miyako' is taken from the idyllic Japanese holiday island of Miyako-jima, considered by many to be one of the most beautiful spots in Japan and the perfect location for open-top motoring," stated the press release.

The vehicles are fitted with a long list of standard features including remote central locking, a leather steering wheel with audio controls, an MP3 compatible audio system with six speakers and auxiliary jack input, as well as heated electric mirrors and electric front windows. The 2.0 liter model also comes with a limited slip differential , Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and Traction Control System (TCS).

The MX-5 Miyako soft top comes with a 126 hp 1.8 liter engine, while the coupe cabriolet version of the car is powered by a 160 hp 2.0 liter unit. The first needs 9.9 seconds to reach 62 mph, while the second cuts two seconds off that time.

Both version of the MX-5 Miyako can be ordered in Aluminium Silver Metallic, while the soft-top can also come in Velocity Red Mica. Only 500 units of each version will enter the British market, with the soft-top having a price of 18,385 pounds and the coupe cabrio retailing for 20,885 pounds.

This is the first special edition model based on the upgraded MX-5 that we have offered on both softtop and roadster coupe body styles and I am sure it will attract new buyers to our brand. Both models also represent great value, with the 2.0i Miyako costing just 590 pounds more than the entry level 2.0 SE model,” said Mark Cameron, sales director, Mazda UK.
