The last hurrah for the mk3 Mazda MX-5 was this, the 25th Anniversary Edition. Based around the Roadster Coupe model and its retractable hard-top roof the car features off-white leather seats embossed with a 25th Anniversary logo. Billstein dampers and 17-inch ‘Dark Gunmetal’ alloy wheels. Not bad for £23,000.
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.
