But it will only be offered in limited numbers.
Mazda has recently introduced a slew of special edition models, none of which were confirmed for the US market. The 2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata, for example, recently received a new MX-5 R-Sport model that is limited to just 150 units in the UK. Now though, Mazda has announced that the 100th Anniversary Special Edition of the MX-5, which was previously for foreign markets only, will be made available in the United States.
Mazda North American Operations has announced that the 100th Anniversary Special Edition will be offered in limited numbers here in the US. This special edition will be available on the standard soft-top Miata as well as the 2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF (retractable fastback).
No specific build numbers have been mentioned for the limited run but all examples will be finished in Snowflake White Pearl Mica premium paint with red styling accents. The front fender is adorned with a small "100 Years 1920 - 2020" badge while the center caps on the wheels feature a subtle red and black logo.
Inside, red leather seats and red carpets give a nod to Mazda's first-ever passenger car, the R360 Coupe. The interior is also differentiated by a 100th Anniversary logo on the headrests and a badge on the carpets that matches the fenders. Even the key fob is embossed with a special logo and will be delivered to customers in a special edition box.
Mazda says the 100th Anniversary Special Edition is based on the luxurious Grand Touring trim level and can be equipped with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. In case you needed any additional incentive to ignore the automatic, the manual models include a limited-slip differential, Bilstein dampers, front shock tower brace, and a sport-tuned suspension. RF models receive a black roof while the soft-top gets a red fabric roof.
Pricing for the MX-5 100th Anniversary Special Edition starts at $32,670 for a manual soft-top or $33,195 with the automatic. The RF starts at $35,425 with the manual or $35,750 with the automatic. Both are set to arrive later this year in 2020, each powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder SkyActiv engine producing 181 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque.
If you want one, we recommend acting quickly because the last MX-5 special edition sold out less than four hours after being made available.
