You’d expect a car labeled Black Edition to actually be, you know…black. Whether it’s a Porsche, a Hummer or a Unimog. But then again Mercedes-AMG’s top line of performance models are called the Black Series, and you can get those in any color you want. So maybe it’s a page out of that playbook that Mazda has taken with its latest special edition.
Mazda’s latest specials are available exclusively in the UK, and celebrate the success of the MX-5 GT race car. It’s available on both the MX-5 Miata hardtop roadster and the Mazda2 five-door hatch, and while either can be ordered in green, red or white, it’s the black trim on everything from the roof to the wheels that sets them apart and gives them their name.
Only 500 examples of the MX-5 Sport Black shown above will be offered, while the Mazda2 Black will give birth to 618 offspring, each packing all the bells and whistles to go along with the darkened trim. Details in the press release after the jump, with images in the high-res gallery.
Mazda UK’s Black edition MX-5 and Mazda2 can be had in any color… as long as it’s not black? originally appeared on Autoblog on Tue, 26 Jul 2011 18:01:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
