What’s the wildest Mazda MX-5 special? That’ll be the Super25 concept. This was basically a racing car built for the SEMA show in 2012. It featured a full roll cage, Sparco racing seat and a full race harness. Mazda also chucked a dazzling set of PIAA 40 Series halogen lamps on the nose.
The ‘55’ numbers on the doors reference the Mazda 787B’s 1991 Le Mans victory.
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.
