A special edition MX-5 Miata will make its debut at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show.
Mazda has produced a special edition MX-5 Miata for a premiere at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show. We have already seen several special edition versions of this power-retractable hard-top (PRHT) in the past, as it has been on the market now for nearly 7 years. The most telling addition to the latest special edition is the bespoke finish on the PRHT's exterior. In the U.S., it will be available with either Crystal White Pearl Mica or Velocity Red Mica.
Japan and England will receive both colors along with a Spirited Green Metallic finish. The roof will remain black regardless of color choice along with several other black accents, including the mirrors. The MX-5 Miata special edition will run on a set of also blacked-out 17-inch gunmetal alloy wheels. The interior features plenty of leather and alloy pedals. It runs on a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with an output of 167hp. It is mated to either a six-speed Sport automatic transmission or a six-speed manual gearbox. Bilstein shocks, LSRD and sport-tuned suspension along with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters complete the special edition.
The Mazda MX-5 Miata special edition will be limited to only 450 units. Keep an eye out for the PRHT when it makes its debut next week at the Chicago Auto Show.
