2014 Mazda MX-5 25th Anniversary Review, Price and Release – Welcome to Neocarsuv.Com, we will provide the latest information about the Mazda MX-5 25th Anniversary Redesign. 2015 Mazda MX-5 25th Anniversary is one brand new car from Mazda that will be release in 2014. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2014 Mazda MX-5 25th Anniversary.
Mazda unveils the Mazda MX-5 25th Anniversary Edition at the 2014 New York International Auto Show, celebrating the introduction a quarter of a century ago of what would become the most popular roadster in history. The unconventional Japanese carmaker is also exhibiting the newly developed SKYACTIV-Chassis that will underpin the next-generation MX-5.
The MX-5 is the model that best symbolises Mazda’s carmaking philosophy. Initially launched in 1989, the little roadster has consistently offered the kind of fun only a lightweight sports car can, winning a diversity of fans in terms of culture, geography and demography. More than 940,000 MX-5s have been produced over three generations, and it continues to hold the Guinness World Record for best selling two-seater sports car.
There will only be 100 of these models available, and you have to register you interest for pre-ordering starting at 10:25 a.m. PDT on May 20, 2014. After the cutoff date of May 31, 2014 at 11:25 a.m. PDT or when 250 pre-order registrations have been made — whichever happens first — the ordering system will be shut down for good. As for pricing, the MX-5 25th Anniversary Edition bases at $32,205 with the manual transmission, while the automatic version bases at $32,655.
The Mazda MX-5 25th Anniversary Edition brings together two-and-a-half decades of fun. Based on the existing retractable hard top model with six-speed manual or automatic transmission, it features Bilstein shock absorbers along with a Soul Red Metallic exterior accented with a black roof, A-pillars and side mirrors. The interior, meanwhile, comes in off-white leather upholstery and door trim along with a hand-finished decorative panel.
Mazda will also reveal the new SKYACTIV-Chassis destined for the upcoming fourth-generation MX-5. On display together with the engine, it will be the first adaptation of SKYACTIV Technology in a front mid-ship engine, rear-wheel drive layout. With a lower centre of gravity and the engine located closer to the centre of the car, the next MX-5 will feature its most compact configuration yet. Mazda is also aiming to reduce overall weight by more than 100kg relative to the current model while at the same time enhancing rigidity and crashworthiness.
“The original concept behind the Mazda MX-5 was so simple: To offer the pure joy of a lightweight sport car that moves precisely as the driver intends,” says Mazda Motor Corporation Chairman of the Board Takashi Yamanouchi. “While responding to increasing safety and environmental requirements over the 25 years since its launch, we have had to continually reinvent the MX-5 far beyond simple evolution to stay true to that original ideal. The history of the MX-5 is one of changing everything to stay the same: A history of innovating in order to preserve.”
25th Anniversary badges with the particular serial number for each car on it adorns the front fenders. Typically, these types of badges are reserved for the cabin, but apparently, Mazda wants people to know that this is a special model — just in case that deep Soul Metallic Red body with Brilliant Black A-pillars, windshield surround, mirrors and hardtop doesn’t give it away.
On the corners are 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels coated in Dark Gunmetal and wrapped tightly in 205/45R17, W-Rated rubber.
The Almond leather seating and door trim panels are exclusive to this 25th Anniversary Edition MX-5, and the definitely kick the interior up to a new level. Additionally, the exclusive, hand-finished decorative panel and satin chrome louver rings are simply incredible.
The Brilliant Black accents make their way into the cabin as well, tying the interior and exterior together. You can hue find this on seatback garnish. The black accents continue on to the leather-wrapped handbrake, steering wheel, armrests and shifter boot.
The 25th Anniversary Edition model uses the same 2.0-liter engine that the rest of the 2014 MX-5 lineup will use. The difference is that this engine will feature special, hand-selected pistons, connecting rods and flywheel. Sure, these shouldn’t increase power any, but Mazda claims they will allow the engine to rev more freely, thus improving acceleration and response.
