Mazda offers limited edition models

Japanese carmaker Mazda has announced that it is offering two limited-edition cars for sale to its customers in the UK.

Mazda is releasing the MX-5 Sport Black and the Mazda2 Black with some unique features to mark the success of its MX-5 GT racing car.

To attract more buyers the car manufacturer has added some extra equipment for both the models.

The Mazda 2 Black will be offered in a limited run of just 618 cars and only 500 MX-5 Sport Blacks will be available in the UK.

Based on its previous model, the 2.0-litre, 158bhp Sport Black is available in shades of green, white and red. The body colour of the car is highlighted with a "brilliant black" electric folding hard top.

It also features 'gun metal' dark grey wheels, black leather interior with contrasting sand colour stitching, a special black steering wheel and dashboard panel, limited-edition floor mats, unique exterior badges and numbered plaque.

The car is priced at £22,995, which is £360 more than its previous model.
