MX-5 has limited appeal

Riley Riley

Mazda has released a limited edition MX-5 exclusively for Australia.

With special features and equipment, the Limited Edition MX-5 RF further enhances the driving experience.

Each of the 110 examples is based on the top grade MX-5 RF GT and equipped with the SKYACTIV-G petrol engine, paired with the six-speed SKYACTIV-MT manual transmission.

The Kuroi Sports Pack fitted to the Mazda MX-5 RF Limited Edition cars adds modest winglets near the front of the wheel arch openings to direct air away from the wheels and along the sides of the body.

To help the aerodynamics, Mazda engineers have also revised the suspension with a front strut bar linking the under-bonnet suspension towers to increase chassis stiffness.

The strut brace is aided by upgraded Bilstein gas-pressurised dampers to improve the car’s already-impressive ride and handling characteristics.

New 17-inch diameter BBS alloy wheels also help sharpen the steering.

While Brembo brakes round out the package,adding to controllability under high-load braking conditions.

Brake cooling performance has also been improved by adopting brake discs with circular, pillar-shaped cooling fins which, in conjunction with the use of European-style low-steel brake pads, improves fade resistance by up to 26 per cent.

Use of the Brembo brakes saves almost two kilograms of weight in the front brakes compared to the standard brakes.

Inside, the Mazda MX-5 RF Limited Edition gets body-hugging Recaro sports seats for the ultimate blend of sports and luxury.

Adding to its collectability, each car also comes with a gift-boxed, custom-made Seiko stainless steel Mazda MX-5 sports chronograph to perfectly fit the active lifestyle of Mazda MX-5 RF Limited Edition owners.

The Limited Edition MX-5 RF is a drive away $55,790.
