There have been many limited edition Miatas. Here’s one more. Mazda has announced that the first 1,000 examples of the 2017 MX-5 RF will be exclusive Launch Edition models. As with the soft-top ND Miata Launch Edition, the RF will feature a few bits that you can only get on the Launch Edition too.
All Launch Editions will be based on the Grand Touring trim level and come in a Machine Gray Metallic exterior matched with Auburn Nappa leather interior and a black roof panel. Mazda in a press release issued today warns that this color combo will be available only on the Launch Edition, not to be replicated in the future. Each Launch Edition car will also receive a custom-designed and numbered 42mm Tourneau watch to match their car.
Buyers will get to choose only a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic. Mazda will make pre-orders available to a select group of loyal customers first, notified by either phone or email, then open ordering of the remaining 1,000 cars to the public. If this is something you want, keep an eye on your calls and inbox.
