Head Into the Blue With the Mazda MX-5 Classic

The world’s most popular sports car, the Mazda MX-5, is now available as a limited edition Classic model that features exclusive Cerrion Silver metallic paint, blue leather interior trim and a blue soft top.

The exclusive MX-5 Classic -- only 100 examples will be sold -- also boasts new-look, 16-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, the blue leather trim is matched by a two tone (blue/black) thick-rimmed Nardi steering wheel and a two tone shift knob and leather park brake. The interior also features an aluminium-look finish on the centre panel, air vent bezels, gearbox shift plate, door handles and park brake button.

The car also features a six in-dash CD player as well as dual airbags, ABS anti-lock brakes, remote locking with engine immobiliser, power windows and mirrors, folding roof with a glass rear window, front driving lights and tonneau cover.

Priced from $42,890, the MX-5 Classic is just $2,410 more than the standard $40,480 six-speed manual model, but offers additional equipment worth at least $3500.

The managing director of Mazda Australia, Malcolm Gough said: “The MX-5 Classic is just that, a pure bred sports car that offers great car dynamics backed up with a very long list of standard features.

“The Mazda MX-5 is the benchmark in the affordable sports car market and the limited edition Classic makes the MX-5 even more desirable”.

Like all manual MX-5s, the Classic is powered by a 16-valve, 1.8-litre, Sequential Valve Timing engine that meets the strict European Stage III emission standards that do not come into effect here until January 2005.

The engine produces a strong 107 kilowatts at 7000rpm and 168 Newton metres of torque at 5000rpm. The six-speed manual MX-5 accelerates from 0-100kmh in just 8.4 seconds

First going on sale in 1989, Mazda has sold close to 650,000 MX-5’s globally, making it the world’s best-selling sports car.

Last year Mazda imported the 10,000th MX-5 into Australia, a Classic Red manual model just like the first car that arrived here in October 1989.
