The famous Miata goes solely by the MX-5 name in Europe, but it might also get called the Z-Sport by the British passionate, given some of them will have the chance to snatch the new MX-5 Z-Sport special series.
Buyers in the United Kingdom need to act fast though – the Japanese company is only manufacturing 300 examples of the limited-edition Z-Sport, with sales kicking off on March 1, 2018. The new special series comes in as a more stylish offering as opposed to the legendary affordability of the little roadster – adding the Deep Cherry Red fabric roof, 17-inch black-finished BBS wheels, as well as a Machine Grey Metallic hue. The cockpit is awarded Sand-colored leather upholstery, Z-Sport lettering on the floor mats and door sills along with a n individually labeled plaque on the dashboard to show the exact number of the 300 cars production roster.
The Z-Sport edition is also the first time the Deep Cherry Red roof becomes available in the UK, and all examples will also bundle the Sport Nav trim and the feistier 2.0-liter four-cylinder, good for 158 horsepower. It gets even better – there’s also a limited-slip differential, Bilstein dampers, and a front strut brace, all thrown in for good measure. The Z-Sport will be available exclusively for British buyers for 25,595 pounds, a bit pricier than the standard 24,195 pounds Sport Nav trim MX-5 with the 2-liter.
