There is not more than a year since Mazda introduced the new generation MX-5, and the Japanese manufacturer is already launching a special edition, called Icon and scheduled to make its debut during this year Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The Icon is based on the 131 hp SE-L Nav and is the first special edition fourth-generation MX-5 with the 1.5-litre Skyactiv-G engine.
With a choice of Meteor Grey Mica or Crystal White Pearlescent paint, the £20,995 priced Icon is marked out by its contrasting design cues and enhanced standard equipment.
Seen from the outside, the Icon has Soul Red Metallic wing mirrors, rear spoiler, side stripe decals and front skirt. The look is further boosted by 16-inch Gunmetal alloy wheels, while the increased equipment tally also includes black leather seats, rear parking sensors, dusk-sensing lights and rain-sensing wipers.

the Icon joins a host of other MX-5 highlights at this year’s Festival of Speed. These include the European debut of the all-new Mazda MX-5 RF, plus the first appearance outside of North America for the MX-5 Speedster and Spyder concept cars. While marking the amazing popularity of the world’s best-selling two-seater sports car, the one-millionth production MX-5 will also be on display.
The fourth car to wear the Icon badge, previous MX-5 Icon special editions were sold in the UK in 2000, 2005 and 2007, the latest Icon is limited to just 600 cars and it’s available to order now.
