• Mazda MX-5 25th Anniversary Edition review

The MX-5 Anniversary Edition is finished in an exclusive ‘Racing orange’ paint colour and features forged aluminium wheels (commissioned by specialists RAYS), Brembo front brakes with calipers finished in orange, Bilstein dampers and a host of numbered “30th Anniversary Edition” badges.

Like most special edition MX-5s, the engine and gearbox remain untouched. This new model uses Mazda’s 181bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder Skyactiv-G engine, sending drive to the rear axle through a six-speed manual gearbox.

Inside, this limited edition MX-5 gets orange accents and Alcantara swathing around the cabin, dashboard and gear stick, Recaro seats, a nine-speaker Bose sound system and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.

Revealed earlier in the year at the Chicago Auto Show, this new model’s debut follows in the footsteps of the original MX-5, which was also revealed at the Chicago expo in 1989. Since launch, the MX-5 has sold more than one million units worldwide, over 130,000 of which have found UK homes.
