Mazda will limit the special edition's production to 600 units

After its introduction, the Mazda MX-5 Miata quickly became an icon among modern sports cars because the little roadster gave drivers an affordable way to have a lot of fun behind the wheel. Customers responded to that intoxicating combination by buying a million of them. At this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, Mazda will celebrate the model’s success by unveiling the Miata Icon special edition. It'll offer buyers a way to get a more style from the droptop without breaking the bank.

Customers can order the Icon in Meteor Grey Mica or Crystal White Pearlescent, and the convertibles gets an extra design flourish from Soul Red Metallic parts for the mirrors, rear spoiler, and front splitter. The crimson color is also on a decal down each side, but the cars in these photos don’t wear it. A set of 16-inch gunmetal wheels is a perfect finisher to the exterior upgrades. Inside, occupants sit in black leather seats. Buyers get extra standard tech, too, including rear parking sensors, rain-sensing wipers, and automatic headlights. Power comes from a 1.5-liter four-cylinder with 129 horsepower.

Mazda will limit the Icon’s production to just 600 units, and they’ll only be available in the United Kingdom. The few lucky buyers will get a great deal, though. The special edition will cost 20,995 pounds ($29,800) when sales begin August 1. However, the SE-L Nav trim, upon which Mazda bases this model, goes for 20,195 pounds ($28,700). That’s a small premium for so much extra equipment on such a fantastic roadster.
