Mazda has announced plans to offer an MX-5 Venture Edition in the United Kingdom.

Essentially a renamed Spring Edition, the model features a chrome grille, piano black "fashion" bars and 17-inch alloy wheels. It will be offered in three colors: Metropolitan Grey Mica or exclusive Radiant Ebony Mica and Crystal White Pearlescent.

The cabin has Havana Brown leather seats, piano black trim, alloy pedals and a navigation system with a 5.8-inch display.

Under the hood, two engines are available. The 1.8 MZR has 126 PS (93kW / 124 hp) and 167 Nm (123 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a five-speed transmission which enables the soft top to accelerate from 0-60 in 9.9 seconds and hit a top speed of 121 mph (195 km/h).

On the other hand, the 2.0 MRZ produces 160 PS (118 kW / 158 hp) and 188 Nm (139 lb-ft) of torque.  When paired to a six-speed manual gearbox, the hardtop runs from 0-60 mph in 7.9 seconds and tops out at 136 mph (219 km/h).

Production will be limited to 800 units - 250 soft tops and 550 coupes - and pricing starts at £18,995 (OTR).
