Mazda has announced that its new MX-5 Miata RF Launch Edition is now open for pre-orders.
The limited-edition with a removable fastback hardtop will be restricted to just 1,000 units, each with a choice between a Skyactiv-MT six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic transmission.
Based on the Sport Touring trim, the Launch Edition features an exclusive combination of Machine Gray Metallic paint and Auburn Nappa interior leather trim with a black roof panel. The car is paired with a custom-designed, serialized 42mm Torneau watch to complement the purchase.
The Launch Edition starts at $34,685 (including $835 freight) with a manual gearbox or $35,760 with an automatic.
Pre-orders have kicked off on an invite-only basis, providing a limited window of time before ordering opens to the public. Deliveries are expected to begin sometime in spring 2017.
