The MX-5 was 10 in 1999 and that called for the first of many anniversary editions. The 10th Anniversary edition wasn’t just a mats and flaps job, it added a six-speed manual gearbox and Bilstein dampers to the standard package. All 7,500 cars came with Innocent Blue paint.
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.
