The 2016 Mazda MX-5 Cup racer has been priced officially across the United States as the first deliveries are beginning later on this year.
The Japanese based automaker Mazda is now placing the MX-5 Cup into the spotlights once again, this time by announcing its official starting price across the United States. According to the car manufacturer, the model in question is currently available for order and its first deliveries have been scheduled to begin later on this year.
“For the past decade, the third-generation sports car has been competing in our own MX-5 Cup series, and has been the ideal platform to showcase driving talent in a competitive environment on high-profile race weekends,” said John Doonan, director of motorsports, Mazda North American Operations (MNAO). “With the launch of the fourth-generation MX-5, we are raising the bar by making it even easier for aspiring professional road racers to get involved. We expect to sell out the first batch of cars rapidly.”
The new Mazda MX-5 Cup has been jointly developed by Mazda Motorsports and by Long Road Racing and it is bringing a modified body kit which is helping its aerodynamics and it is also improving the looks of the roadster. The vehicle has also received a roll cage, amongst other modifications applied to it. If you are currently interested in one, you should know that this has been priced from 53,000 USD and it is packing a 2.0 liter SKYACTIV-G engine under its hood.
