The Mazda MX-5 is absolutely amazing as an everyday car, but the 2017 RF adds a little more solidity – to the roof, anyway. And now, you can order one.
Mazda announced today the RF Launch Edition can now be ordered online at MX5RFPreOrder.com, for the already announced price of $33,850. All 1,000 Launch Editions are painted Machine Gray and feature a black retractable roof with Auburn Nappa leather upholstery inside – it’s the only way to get this color combination on a Miata.
The company says many of these Launch Editions are already spoken for, so if you want one and haven’t signed up you’re already dragging your feet. But pricing news for these less-special edition Miata RFs has trickled out.
A Miata RF Club will start at $31,555, according to Road & Track. Like the roadster, the RF gets a choice of standard six-speed manual or an optional six-speed automatic. The Club is also available with a BBS Wheel and Brembo Brake combo. Those seeking more comfort should look at the Grand Touring, starting from $32,260, since it gets leather upholstery, Bose audio and other niceties.
The Launch Edition arrives early next year, with the standard RF going on sale shortly after. At which point you’ll have no excuse not to get some kind of Miata if you’re in the market for a fun-to-drive roadster.
