The MX-5 celebrated its 20th year in production in predictable style with another special edition. The MX-5 20th Anniversary Edition had Recaro bucket seats, 17” 10-spoke wheels and was a range of highly questionable exterior decals as cost options. Without the stickers, the standard cars looked very fetching in patriotic red, white or blue shades.
The Mazda MX-5 is a modern motoring icon, a two-seater, open-topped sports car with an overriding focus on fun.
Through three generations and 25 years, the MX-5 has wormed its way into the hearts of millions, whether as an inexpensive route to rear-wheel-drive handling purity or as a simple, pretty roadster in the classic vein.
