Mazda’s British division has introduced a limited-edition version of the MX-5 Miata called Sport Recaro.
The Sport Recaro Edition is aimed at buyers who are seeking a more luxurious convertible. Inside, it gains Alcantara upholstery on the bottom part of the dashboard, alloy pedals, model-specific floor mats, and, as its name implies, heated Recaro bucket seats. It stands out as one of the best-appointed Miatas Mazda has ever offered in Europe.
The more upscale cabin is complemented by 17-inch alloys and a full body kit that includes a splitter on both ends, side skirts, as well as a small spoiler on the trunk lid. The add-ons are painted in brilliant black, and the Sport Recaro edition is available exclusively in soul red metallic or ceramic metallic.
Mazda hasn’t made any mechanical modifications. The Sport Recaro edition is powered by a stock, Miata-sourced 2.0-liter that sends 155 horsepower and 148 lb-ft. of torque to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission.
Limited to just 600 examples, the Mazda MX-5 Miata Sport Recaro Edition is on sale now across the United Kingdom with a base price of £24,295, a sum that converts to roughly $37,000. At the time of writing Mazda isn’t planning on offering the posh ragtop in the United States.
