The Mazda MX-5 is the world’s best selling sports car, and this has been the case for the past thirty years. What better way to celebrate the model’s 30th anniversary by releasing what is soon expected to become a collectible in the Philippine automotive market, the Mazda MX-5 RF 30th Anniversary Edition.
3,000 units of the MX-5 RF 30th Anniversary Edition is destined for the global market, in which 30 units are allocated for the Philippines. The beautiful Racing Orange paint is an inspiration from the Miata Club Racer from 1989, and the striking color is seen in the Brembo brakes, as well as the interior, with its Recaro bucket seats with Racing Orange piping, stitching, door panels, and aircon vents. Lightweight 17-inch RAYS Engineering forged alloy wheels with 30th Anniversary engraving improve the car’s handling as well as its sporty looks. Moreover, Bilstein shocks are offered in the manual transmission variant for even better cornering performance. Commemorative badging are placed in the sides of the vehicle, indicating the production number of the lucky owner’s MX-5 RF 30th Anniversary Edition.
A 7-inch Mazda Connect infotainment system, now with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, as well as 9-speaker Bose premium sound system enhances the comfort levels provided by this rare one-of-a-kind roadster to its lucky owner.
Underneath the hood of the rare MX-5 is the same 2.0-liter inline-4 Skyactiv-G petrol engine which was refreshed last year to produce 184 hp and 205 Nm of torque, with redline now increased to 2,500 rpm. Transmission choices are either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic.
Whichever transmission option is chosen, the price tag is the same, which is at P2,990,000 each. Better hurry up now if you are interested in this future collectible, since many have already placed their reservations to be part of the lucky 30 people to be able to get their hands on one of the world’s most iconic sports cars.
